Fox Delta: Under the Radar
PC (Retail, Steam)
Description of the Game
Fox Delta: Under the Radar is a third-person tactical shooter developed with the Unreal Development Kit for the PC. As part of a 4-man squad, players will utilize modern military weapons and tactics as they progress through a semi-linear campaign.
Players will tackle a variety of objectives throughout locations in North, Central, and South America. The primary goal of the Fox Delta team is to systematically dismantle one or more drug cartels by destroying equipment, killing high profile targets, and preventing narcotics from
reaching the US. The US is openly against the violent tactics involved in such operations, and so a special forces team has been put together, unknown to the US government, to handle these tasks.
Game play in Fox Delta is one part stealth, one part tactics, and one part gun based combat. Players will utilize stealth to achieve goals such as infiltrating facilities, and to gain the upper hand prior to initiating combat with the enemy. Players will utilize tactics by giving commands to their AI teammates, and coordinating maneuvers in order to accomplish objectives. Players will engage in firearm based combat via a third person camera.
Currently we are developing a single level that will be polished to release quality and used as a prototype and demo. This demo will be released publicly to promote interest in the game, and to collect feedback. We will then move forward and begin work on the full game, utilizing the demo as the foundation.
The demo level takes place halfway through the game, and tasks players with infiltrating a Central American drug processing facility, and destroying shipments and equipment. Secondary objective include killing a priority VIP target, destroying shipping vehicles, and blowing up the VIP's personal helicopter. Secondary objectives are not required to complete the level, but may affect the difficulty of future objectives, and earn players additional rewards, like new weapons and equipment.
Fox Delta: Under the Radar will have a campaign that is played with AI teammates, a smaller online co-op campaign, and an 8v8 competitive multiplayer.
Unique game play features, story, and other key information will be released to applicants if accepted.
