Please note: This game is no longer called “Concept”, but “Rising World”.
I’d like to present a game to you, which a colleague and I developed – with JMonkeyEngine of course
It’s a game that might remind you of “Minecraft”, with the main difference being that the world is not made up of blocks but of a normal “smooth” landscape. The game is simply called “Concept”!
The landscape is completely modifiable without any restrictions – and there are also no restrictions on how you build it up. To do this you have both simple shapes such as blocks, cylinders, stairs, etc., as well as specific objects such as tables, chairs, beds, etc. – some of which you can interact with. We will soon be adding more precise construction elements (e.g. wooden planks) to round off your building opportunities.
There are currently around 200 different materials available.
The game does, of course, have multi-player capability. This was a main area of focus from the very start of development.
The game is still in an early alpha stage, i.e. there are lots of things still to be refined: there is no clothing system, there are still no animals or opponents, vehicles have not yet been integrated into the game, there are no dungeons yet, etc.
However, we have a very long list of planned features, which we intend to provide bit by bit in the form of updates.
The current early-alpha version can be purchased for EUR 9.99, and your purchase entitles you to receive all future updates free of charge up to the final version.
We would be delighted if you took a closer look at the game. All of the important information can be found on our website at https://www.rising-world.net
This also has an overview of all of the important features.
To finish, perhaps a few words on hardware requirements: generally speaking, the game needs at least a 2-core processor as well as an OpenGL3.0-compatible graphics card, due to the fact that we use TextureArrays. Many OpenGL2.1 graphics cards also support this feature, i.e. the game can also be run on these graphics cards.
However, it is recommended that you have at least a 4-core processor or a 2-core processor from one of the newer generations (which usually have another 2 simulated cores). In terms of the working memory, 3-4 GB should be enough.
