Kitchen-Table Game Development

If you’re an avid gamer, you’ve probably asked yourself: Where are the fantasy first-person shooters? The guys behind Project Offset asked themselves the same question. And in the true spirit of DIY, they decided to take matters into their own hands and create the fantasy FPS that they’d like to play. The results, so far, are mind-boggling. This is not a mod, this is a ground-up game engine and epic fantasy world with graphics that put many other well-capitalized efforts to shame. This has all been accomplished by three volunteers working in a guy’s apartment! It’s hard to imagine that the sneak peak demos are real, in-game renderings, but they claim they are. There are still years of development left, and the team is looking for funding or being picked up by a commercial developer, but seeing what they have so far, we can’t imagine that’s not going to happen.
