About Indigo Viper
Indigo Viper is a classic 2D jump&shoot game made with a powerful 3D game engine. The main focus of the game is on speedy one-shot-one-kill multiplayer arena matches.
Like the overly colorful and charming heist films of late 1950s and early 1960s, the game is set up in the city of Foster Park, where a bunch of goons in dinner jackets and fedoras hunt each other on their search for the »Indigo Viper«, a gem of extraordinary value and meaning.
The game currently provides several arenas with individual themes (like sewer, hotel, the docks), varying weapon types, different game modes like the classic deathmatch, a Capture the Flag variation and a hot potato mode in which the player has to get rid of a timed bomb. I also included a simple single player campaign for training.
In future, I want to add a lot more arenas, game modes and weapons. The final game will have a complex and story-driven single player campaign. We also look for a musical theme and enhance controls and 3D models.
Following a similar Flash game which I made in 2006, I tried to merge concepts of games which I loved and played to the utmost in mid-90s, like Flashback, Golden Eye, Super Bomberman 2 and many more. I wanted to capture the direct and simple control of a 16-bit platformer and mix it with the funny madness of local multiplayer games. I thought about the project in January 2013, when I got in touch with Unity3D. kohijin and I did a lot of research and planning and we eventually started the project on a hobbyist level.
The team of Indigo Viper consists of me (Max) doing the main work, a backing Unity3D pro (kohijin), an illustrator (Bülow) and a bunch of good friends helping and testing.
