VVGtv Exclusive: Freds Fridays!
Here at VVGtv, we do many things regarding indie games. Today, Friday the 13th marks a special day, it marks the start of “Night of the Fred”, you will follow our adventure and things we’ve found to be interesting about the game. It could be a screenshot, a music clip from the game, a weapon, development process or even a ninja? Well let’s just put it this way, each week on Friday starting today, we will share some more information about the game as each week passes us by. Get ready to help us guide Fred through an epic zombie infested world every week, so gather your guns and blunt objects, it’s time to leave the basement and grab your controller…….oh wait, most of you seclude yourself in your mothers basement while playing video games (Kidding). Just sit right there, only Fred needs to leave his basement, I mean look at his eyes!
‘Night Of The Fred’ is a Zombie Action-RPG for XBLIG. You play as Fred, a regular guy who discovers his parents are missing, as well as a world infested with zombies. But that doesn’t bother Fred, as nothing will stand in his way to find his parents.
Development wise, we’d say we are at about 20% done. We have all the gameplay mechanics sorted and everything functioning smoothly. At the moment though, the biggest challenge we face is the game world, which we are currently in the middle of. Before starting development, creating the world we always knew was going to be the most difficult part, due to the sheer size of the game. The hardest part about it, is crafting something that not only looks good, yet is believable. That by far is our toughest goal to achieve during the making of ‘Night Of The Fred’.
‘Night Of The Fred’ is expected to be released on Xbox Live Indie Games in October 2012.
