The jumpr project is an untitled game in pre-production. It is a first person shooter based in a steampunk world and will be developed in unity3d.
Steampunk genra is a sci-fi genre which revolves the idea of steam powered devices being dominant over all other innovations of technology. Before you just state in your head that this is a horrible idea please read everything else.
If we was to incorporate the steam idea we could have a solution to our huge health issue, where the player would have to have invincibility to explosions therefore limiting our weapon variety and everything. With the steam concept we could simply have "rocket launchers" that shoot out rounds of bundeled steam pressure that release when impacts on something or someone, causing momentum. This would be an easy concept for players to wrap around because to an extent it is cliché, but only enough to where its still an original yet understandable situation. With this we could limit the rounds of ammo to limit the exploit of shortcuts with constant shooting and gaining of height and distance.
My idea for the combat would obviously he first person shooter but when fighting enemies, players should have the choice to fight the enemies with real weapons (weapons you see in FPS now a days) or the choice to escape the combat and not being damaged with their skills in jumping using steam weapons, This way the player can either use steam only weapons to be evasive and dodge their enemies or be brutes with the use of combat weapons and using un-aided jumps to progress the area, or use a combination of both to be balanced. This leads me to state there should without a doubt be Steam weapons that replicate a rocket launcher and brute shot but also a Spartan laser (imagine shooting a wall with it to have a small jetpack boost) and combat weapons are completely open for discussion. Also with two types of grenades! FRAG and steam, frag being obvious and steam producing a small geyser that works as a very short gravity lift.
The story begins with the world being drained of its natural resources by the people that inhabit it in the future. The ability to use such resources like electricity and coal to gain energy becomes incredibly limited and this leads the the formation of alliances throughout the world, being formed by two countries Chromix and Apheriza. These two alliances share the resources they have with one another, causing a decent supply or resources for the following years. Then, when rumors of invasion breakout between the opposite alliances, a war is declared and the two countries then form with they're allied countries to become two super continents. These two fight a brutal and ruthless war slaughtering nearly thirty percent of the human population. Eventually the war ends as resources are drained to a point of uselessness. Leaving both continents baron and resourceless. As the war ends the world stays sepersted due to Chronix people despising the Alpheriza population and vise versa. Eventually the two continents begin to rely on steam as their primary resource as it is an infinite resource for both sides. The technology of steam powered innovations increase and advance as soon the world is able to even build cities lifted from the earth by steam. Soon after, the continent of Chronix's government becomes strict of their use of steam. This allows no citizens to use steam and they become lost without their technology, this causes them to escape to the other continent of alpheriza, but then as all the refuges pile into the continent rumors of an invasion are spread. In fear of another war starting the refuges plus a large amount of citizens from alpheriza leave and escape for it is not safe on either continent. The refuges form a colony and build a city in the borderlands of the two continents. A place where they can be cloaked from the war rising. Then both rulers of the continents gain word of the new huge city, they both decode they should capture it in case of a war accumulating it would be a great spot for both sides to have. This is where the two militaries come into the city and there begins the war of the city. The war... Of Babylon.
