leviathan video game
« on: July 19, 2012, 09:27:53 AM »

hi guys i just joined on the eighteenth of july 15 minutes ago and this is my first post,  i am not very familiar with the controls and i coudnt find a post tutorial of how to make a reply so if you can plz help me out :D.  i think that it would be cool to have a video game of leviathan (dont you guys also do?).  it would be cool if we could choose clanker or darwin in it and advance in ranks from newbie to middy to captain etc.

Hi newbie!  The controls are pretty easy.  The reply button is at the bottom of a thread.  Just look for it.  Welcome to the forum!  I'm bramblepool and a complete leviathan fangirl freak!  I hope you like it here!

Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

I wouldn't push people I DONT like down a hill.

So...this would be something like Call of Duty in WWI? Might work. They'd have to do some smoothing out though.

thx for the controls and i think call of duty doesnt really capture this because six bullets before refill and falling off zepplins would make it hard, but then again they made a iphone app about spdrman so i guess it could work.

Never said it would be a first person shooter. Though World at War handled the bolt-action rifles pretty well. They aren't a pain to use if you do it right. And falling off of things...well, that's what invisible walls are for.

Ugh.  Invisible walls are so annoying.  At least in GW.  Keep you from walking into lakes.

They're dead useful in FPS and TPS games though.

invisible walls are great for not dying but are a pain when you can get somewhere faster but cant do it.  my friend has a monster truck game where if you hit the invisible wall you fly backwards in a huge distance, good for running away

In aion it was handy that they weren't there.  That way you can glide everywhere instead of walking.
