Resurrection: The Tyrant King Ryan Mauldin
Purpose • To create a video game that gives a meaningful storyline and fair gameplay. • To bring gaming jobs and the gaming community together in Jacksonville, FL. • To create a game that does not portray foul language as kids are exposed to adult games.
Storyline • The storyline for “Resurrection: The Tyrant King” starts in the middle of an ongoing war between realms. The most powerful and destructive realm is the dragon realm known as “The Crux”. Their goal is to conquer and possess all realms.
Storyline: Watchers • Another such realm is a realm of mystical beings known as “The Watchers”, who have intense magical powers and can reanimate beings at will. Watchers are friendly beings who strive to free all realms from evil.
Storyline: Watchers cont. • “The Watchers” travel through wormholes seeking out help from the most fierce and powerful creatures from each realm they can find to challenge the dragons of “The Crux”. However, each attempt for “The Watchers” thus far has failed.
Storyline: The Tyrant King • Enter our main character, a T-Rex with a history of violence. A Watcher finally visits present day earth and scours from pole to pole until it stumbles across a T-Rex skeleton. The Watcher reanimates the T-Rex back into existence granting it intelligence and the ability to learn and use magic.
Storyline: The Tyrant King cont. • “The Watcher” coaxes the T-Rex into the wormhole to the realm of “The Crux”. This is where the player takes over as the T-Rex fighting “The Crux” in a battle to save all realms.
Screen Captures • Screen captures from the game were provided and modified through Paint.NET.
Game Plan • The game will include main quest goals as well as side quests to keep the player busy and happy. • The map of the dragon realm will be huge with distinctive territory aesthetics. – – – – – There will be rocky mountainous areas. Volcanic areas with tougher bosses. Swamp areas. Desert areas. Tropical grass lands.
Perks • Each of the perks in the game can be leveled up. The perks benefit the player as each new perk level is unlocked. There are several different categories: – Sneak: There will be on-screen indicators that determine whether or not enemies detect your presence. A higher sneak level decreases your chances of getting seen. – Smell: Enables the player to see enemies through sense of smell, even through objects. The higher the smell level, the further away you can detect enemies. – Strength: Enables the player to carry more loot and pick up heavier objects as well as jump higher. – Endurance: Player can run further, run faster, run longer and regenerate stamina faster.
Perks cont. – Agility: Player gains tighter turning radius while running and slips less on slippery surfaces. – Aggression: Player combos are easier to pull off with less chance of being interrupted during combo sequences. – Attack: Improves biting damage, claw damage, stomp damage, and tail whip damage. – Armor: Increases players defenses against enemy attacks. – Health: Increases player’s overall health points and health regeneration.

Combos • After a succession of certain attack types, the game allows the player to engage in a combination move that is stronger than individual attack moves alone. • This allows the player to take an opponent down quickly with game controlled animations that cannot be accomplished without performing the correct combination sequence. • Players will feel a sense of accomplishment after performing a complex combination move as this will take some skill to memorize the set of actions required to perform certain combo moves. • Note that the aggression perk alone determines what level of enemy can break certain level combo moves.
Combos cont. • Here are some examples of combination moves that can be unlocked by opening certain treasure chests through “The Crux” realm: (Note: these moves are subject to change and are an example of what is possible to achieve). – Tail Thrash: Bite, Bite, Tail Whip, Tail Whip – Arial Stomp: Run Towards, Jump, Jump, Bite – Fire Storm: Left claw fire magic, Right claw lightning magic, Jump, Jump, Both claws. – Devour: Bite, Bite, Back, Tail Whip, Forward, Bite. If the enemy is not close to death or is too big, this will not work. This will also increase the players health and stamina while fighting.
Navigation • There will be a world map available to aid in navigation to different quest locations as well as an on-screen compass to help with direction. There will be on-screen indicators of where to go to finish quests. • Areas travelled to before, can be travelled to instantly through the navigation menu as long as the player is not in the heat of battle.
Respawns and Persistence • Enemies and certain loot may respawn after a determined length of time to keep the player happy and hunting. This will also lower the amount of storage space required for each player profile during saves. • The player may save their current game status at any given time as well as using the autosave feature that will happen after quest completions. • Autosave may also happen when switching between indoor arenas as well as the outside world.
Trade • Their will be shops/caravans available to trade loot for valuable resources to help the player out in the game. • Shops/caravans are permitted in “The Crux” realms only for the sake that the dragons do not do slave work. • The player may trade any non-quest items to any friendly shop/caravan.
