A thoughtful puzzle driven campaign

A tactical and competitive FPS multiplayer





VizionEck is a story of discovery AND VizionEck is a fresh take on the FPS genre.


      One half of VizionEck sees the player isolated, disoriented, and powerless in a foreign and foreboding environment.  The narrative focuses on how this situation came to be, rather than the minute by minute actions during the game. This first-person puzzle-platformer is set in a tightly knit open world. Mystery is behind every corner.

      The other half of VizionEck is a re-imagining of the FPS formula, valuing game mechanics above everything else. This includes the combination of first and third person into a single perspective. Fundamentally it's a shooter without real life graphics as a restriction. Gameplay is fast and promotes strategy over reflexes.

      This "Home" page covers details about the game as a whole, while "Adventure" and "Battle" cover the specifics of each half.





Features

      


Photo Mode
      VizionEck's photo mode has the defining ability to work "backwards." Screenshots found online or shared by friends can be converted back into real-time graphics.

      This simple concept has lots of wonderful and sometimes bizarre possibilities. A curious player could load the screenshot shown above, and then pan the camera downward to discover what's at the bottom of those pillars. An artistic player could load this screenshot, and then spice up the shot with new image effects and a better camera placement. An adventurous player could load this screenshot, and then continue playing as if it was their own save file. Etc, etc, etc.

      Converting from screenshot to game does not require a pristine quality image. If a player finds a low res screenshot with compression artifacts, they should still be able to load it into VizionEck without problems. It's then possible to resave the image with max quality settings.

*The original screenshot creator can enable/disable what's possible with their image.


Free DLC
      Players are directly involved with how fast and how much free DLC is released.  VizionEck's in game-currency is the backbone for this system. An Eckm (VizionEck money) is the game's unit of currency, earned by playing Adventure or Battle. Every time any online player earns an Eckm, VizionEck's "Community Score" also increases. Free DLC is released upon the Community Score reaching select milestones. Players can spend their Eckms to unlock game-skins, new maps, extras, bonuses, and more. DLC content is treated just like content available at launch, and usually needs to be unlocked as well.

      Free DLC will be released for the life of the game.


Theater Mode
      All Battle gameplay is automatically recorded as a 3D film, similar to theater modes in other games. The action can be replayed from any angle with any image effects. VizionEck's theater mode additionally shares many elements with its photo mode, including "backwards" conversion. Films can be converted to real-time Battle matches at any point during playback. When there are less players in the lobby than present in the recording, bots control the extra Rangers.


VizionEck Live
      Public Battle matches may be watched live, using similar 3D recordings to theater. Viewers can fly and navigate their own camera or look through the eyes of any player. Competitions and tournaments are the main draw of this feature, both official and player organized.


Game Skins
      The entire look and feel of VizionEck is customizable. Sound effects, graphics, image filters, music, etc. can be changed and modified as desired. Here is a very small sample of different visual changes.

Haha I just update my dev PS4 software to the consumer version that recently released.

All my shaders broke so the game was completely pink.

WOW

I made a tweak to Battle that completely changes how it plays. Needs more playtesting before I commit to this change for good, but it feels like something that should have been there from day one.

Spoiler for Hidden:

I know I tease too much but this change has me legit giddy with excitement.


I agree, that should have been there since day 1.

I've been spending the month dealing with the in-game language. It's been over a year since I finalized the words and grammar, so it was kinda jarring having to re-acclimate with it.

Classic. I actually think I have it but most of the time I don't feel it and nothing comes out

Haven't worked on the game for a few weeks due to health reasons, and was expecting to need around a month more of recovery.

Turns out I'm all good so it's back to work today! No surgery needed.


Been working on streamlining some of the bigger puzzles. Will be fun to see if any of you can solve them.

IS it just me or does the V in the logo look like two crutches that are crossed?

I might be a little tipsy , sorry for being random.
It's for the disabled too!

Yeah, and you could maybe make those updates optional as well for those who have no sense of fun (like myself) :P
I don't know if that's possible, but I'll look into it.

Don't want to annoy people with a new patch every time they start the game.
