Der dritte Flakon / The third flask - New FMV Amiga game

Hey ho!

Last month I told you about this project:

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...hlight=kingdom


I decided to stop it due to copyright reasons and thought about something new.

And here it is:

"The third flask" or "Der dritte Flakon" in German.
It is going to be a FMV mystery adventure / detective story on three CDs.
(68030/040/060 and 32MB RAM)
I already "recruited" two actresses.




Just have a look at this demo:

[ Show youtube player ]

Itīs just a test video from my A4000 (sorry for the bad quality).
(A short introduction and the main menu including musics)

I still use 250 x 200 (256 colours) for the FMV sequences and 640 x 512 for the menu screens.

Well, the story is top secret at the moment.

More details coming soon.

Okay, here you can see a first person level of TTF.

Please excuse the delays but all scenes are preloaded at the moment.
There are several gfx errors and audio playback bugs, too.

Only the paths are implemented yet. No puzzles so far.
For example, youīll need a key to unlock the old mineīs door or you have to solve an electronic wires puzzle (orange box)!

The video quality is good, even on a SVGA monitor.

But I think Iīll need more CDs. One disc per level, I reckon.
So 7 CDs should be enough.

nice

How much interaction will there be, I most say most pure fmv games is a little borring, it might be better with a 3D world with some fmv clip

@Viddi

my friend, this is clearly an awsome project and I do wish you well upon it... if there is anyway i can help you, please just drop me a PM

Its a shame about your last project being stoped by copyright reasons, I think it shows a lot of character to move onto something else!!!

All the best!

Why did you pick an FMV game? Not meaning to be disheartening or anything but they are the worst thing to come out of the CD generation of consoles.

FMV doesn't make a game at all, especially 256 colour FMV at such a low resolution. Why not make the most of the Amiga and do some full screen 2D awesome-ness?

It just seems like such a waste!

@KG

I dont know about all that 2D awesome-ness.. personally I loved the old school FMV games, admitedly there are some that are turkeys, but a few (that got a bad rap) were pretty good stories, especially the ones with different paths.

To e honnest i feel the FMV was under-used! there were plenty of options to use it on the amiga, especially in 2d - games as a back ground etc...

I would like to see a hires or even RTG FMV version, but i will wait untill is see what the low-res looks like... if done right it could add atmosphere and intruege as not everything is as clear as it could be . I would love ot be involved with a goth-vampire-esq or zombie type FMV game, that would be awesome!

I think the worst thing to come out of the CD generation was AOL disks...

@ Zetr0:

Thank you very much for your kind words and your offer

@ Dizzy:

You will be able to walk around (He,he ), pick up items and use them.
And of course you can talk to other NPCs (multiple choice)!

@ killergorilla:

Well, thatīs simple. I canīt do it. And I donīt want to "program" a little, bad looking AMOS game again. (Iīm such a baaaaad programmer)
I always wanted massive FMV games on the Amiga but they never arrived.
So, Iīll try it now! And Iīm sure this is what I can do!

I chose 250 x 200 due to speed and disk space reasons.
A 320 x 256 screen is used by the way.

But Iīll check out full screen animations now.
I also try to use HAM8 instead of 256 colours.


As Zetr0 already mentioned a hires version would be nice...weīll see.

Looks really promising.
Is this ingame music? It fits good to the scene.
I'm really curious to see next scenes and finally the finished game.

Thanks, Thalion.

Yes, itīs ingame music. But I just played it on my synth and sampled it.
So itīs only a rough version.

It picks up the main theme by the way.
