Delta Strike: Beta release on FacebookSocial 3D Action RPG
Delta strike is an online RPG set in space that sees you battling for survival as part of the Global Organisation for Restoration of Earth (G.O.R.E) spacefleet. The team at Pro3games have been working hard to combine the new graphical power of Flash 11’s Stage3D capabilities with the addictive gameplay of a classic space shooter, and released their beta version on facebook after the official release of Flash 11 was announced at the beginning of the month.
With gorgeous graphics, fast-paced action and an initial 3 missions to fly, Delta Strike is one of the first games released to leverage the new graphical abilities of Flash 11 through the Away3D 4.0 engine. Its a great example of the kind of content we look forward to seeing over the coming months, and as a trailblazer for Away3D gaming, one we hope will go on to great things!
Pro3games have generously agreed to write a more in-depth article in a forthcoming post around the technical and graphical hurdles that were encountered during the games production, and how some of those were overcome. This will be one of the first articles we will publish in a new case studies section, to be launched later this month that should assist production teams approaching the creation of an Away3D-based game in Flash 11 for the first time.
