game to be published this October, to be precise, the first Vietnamese FPS (first person shooter) 3D game, and you know what it’s about, the famous Battle of Điện Biên Phủ. The game features 4 main characters, all joined the anti – colonial – French movements from the very early days, participated in various operations before arriving at the final confrontation at Điện Biên Phủ. Not yet to be released, but below are some nice preview screenshots. Having some experiences with game engines, I could say that PC 3D games nowadays are not that hard as before.
They are not really about low level graphics techniques, you would rarely even touch to OpenGL (or DirectX), the engines support most elements you would need. To make a game interesting, it is more about storyboard, scene building, animation, physical modeling and game AI. Anyhow, this is an interesting and promising project, since not only it’s the 1st real FPS game made in Vietnam, but also the first game that takes its inspirations and stories from our history!
