    [GAME] Maze Qore




    INTRODUCTION

    Greetings! I noticed the genre of top-down shooters have changed. Back when I was a kid, I was used to playing traditional 90-degree camera-views with games like Grand Theft Auto and Alien Breed. Nowadays, when I hear "top-down shooter" they usually involve an isometric 3/4 perspective view with the distorting gameplay style. Even the rebooted Alien Breed franchise took that new direction.

    My goal with Maze Qore is to popularize the traditional genre with a twist of squad-based gameplay.




    DESCRIPTION

    Maze Qore is a top-down, squad-based, prison-break, single-player RPG shooter using Unreal Engine. You've been sentenced to life in a maximum security prison for a crime you did not commit. Luckily, a prison riot has occurred and you finally have a chance to make a break for it. You won't be able to do it alone however so you must work together with the prisoners in the revolt against the Maze Qore security staff to secure your escape.

                      Finally got the jeep ready for action. Just need to create the vehicle class in order to use it.
