Dilogus: The Winds of War
|Dilogus: The Winds of War|
Dilogus: The Winds of War is an upcoming third-person role-playing game by Serbian developer Digital Arrow that utilizes the Unigine engine. Originally started as a mod project for Crysis in 2008, the game is now planned for release on Windows and Linux as a full-fledged independent game. It was initially going to be based on the Unreal Development Kit, but was switched to Unigine, which provides full Linux support, a feature desired by the developers.
It is a third-person high fantasy RPG action game that immerses players deep into the awe inspiring fantasy world of Dilogus, allowing them to experience it from multiple perspectives of six unique characters in both single-player and co-operative multiplayer mode on Linux and Windows platforms. Dilogus - Winds of War is based on a fictional fantasy universe, which was polished for over seven years. Being a fantasy RPG, the game immerses the players into a fantasy world, allowing them to play their characters any way possible. The open world feature of the game fuels this option and makes sure the players have enough choices. While the game's actual advancement system is planned to be a bit simpler than the usual RPG style, the main focus is placed into the actual interaction with the world and the combat system, making sure that both the single player and multiplayer experiences are equally enjoyable. Providing the players with six unique characters to start from ensures there is enough room for every type - as each character has its strengths and weakness. The game features a system that allows the player to make use of their character, fists, boots and elbows included, supplementing the weapon based combat system. There is a big contrast in game environment: big open places, when the players are on the top of this cliffs, and closed caves, underground cities, when players enter caves within these cliffs. Dilogus features beautiful environment at some places, while dark and horror-like at others.
"Unigine is a great technology for our game because it provides amazing image quality and easily handles large worlds as well as extremely-detailed indoors. The project was originally started as a full conversion mod and we have tried out several top-level engines before Unigine. This having been said, Unigine has proven to be the best technology for our game", commented Taylor Hughes, Technical Artist of Digital Arrow. "Dilogus is a very ambitious project, but I see a rare combination of high aspirations and expertise of the team, so I'm pretty confident in their success", commented Denis Shergin, CEO of Unigine Corp. The game world resembles Unigine Heaven benchmark a lot, it's like a "Heaven RPG". Developers[who?] say that Unigine Heaven was actually one of the inspirations for them.
