Technology

Dreamscape: Pin Point Blank makes use of Half-Life 2's Source engine. The Source engine is continually updated, which makes this project ever-evolving. The project has customized almost every aspect in Half-Life 2, with a brand new gui, a new camera, a new style of gameplay, and more.

Background info

Dreamscape is a 3rd-person single-player game. Dreamscape also has many RPG elements such as a fully-featured dialogue system, a buy and sell menu, a customize a player feature and more.

The game takes place in the mind of Virgil Coltreese, a lawyer in the city of Chicago.

Prior to the events of the Dreamscape mod, Virgil's brother, Romero, was murdered by a group of mobsters known as the Carollas. The Carollas were seeking revenge on Virgil, but had mistaken Romero for Virgil on the night of the murder.

The murder of Romero caused such shock in Virgil that he began having many nightmares and visions of the future. Dreamscape: Pin Point Blank takes place in one of these visions. Whether they represent reality or not is something you will find out as you play the game.

Unparalelles realism

You have a very nice trailer there, very nice site, very nice looking mod going there.. The maps looked a little meh, but I guess thats alright too..

I liked how you are not trying to create the ultimate fps, and not the basic single player, but something more story driven.. Very nice!

I noticed your team structure.. I gather this LedKardova guy is the one who wrote the dialogue and story, but what excactly is your role on the team Canuck? (besides looking for more members and posting news on the webpage).

Hey Skjalg. Thanks for the reply.

I'm actually the Technical Director. This means I program the features in Dreamscape and also deal with the technical aspects of modeling, mapping, etc. I'm also the Team Lead.

Also, I agree that we do not have the best maps, but I hope that we can get some talented mappers who can help us out in that regard.

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.

      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
