ANd here's one a little bigger with a tag-line.



The colours have been chosen for their vividity and ability to show on black or white backgrounds.

Oh dear. I hate the internet. Guess what's at resist.com? Bleedin white supremicists! Okay, back to the drawing board. Considering that's the second result when you google "resist game" - second only to the Resistance FOM games - that's probably not good if you tell eveyone to "just do a search"

Okay, whilst MB have a game with the same name - it bears no resemblance to this - I'll stick with this as a working title.

I've thought on a few others - double worders, to make it more unique -

Terraraze - A play on terrorize, with the old latin Terra and Raze - for decimation.

RuinEarth - Again, a bit of the postapoc slant, but a bit eco sounding to me.

Or just plain "Earthshock" - an archaic term for earthquakes, but could mean pretty much the equivalent of slipping a stilletto into the world and twisting - just a bit.

And here it is in it's smallest format, in monochrome (the second is for "on white printing" - not really viewable here, but worth opening in a new tab/page) -

the second one is between the two dashes!

Okay - just a status update.
Did a wee compo of all the various things done previously with some music and a wee bit of branding - more for the intro than anything else - I'm planning on a 10 minute short for this - sort of a prologue. The music is all PD or CC - so no fears there.

This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.
WMG is Warner Music Group, but you just said "The music is all PD or CC"
Is youtube just being douches?

Yep, douches.

'Cos WMG cleaned up the 1930s (PD) recording of "Last Kind Words" and released it on a film compilation in 1995 they think they own the rights. Mine's off Archive.org - taken from the original Cylinder recording - copyright has lapsed. Problem is with Youtubes media parsing - they don't differentiate between the two - I think they may have a point if I had lifted it from their CD or something.

As Geeshie Wiley left no heirs, and in fact just plain left this world entirely by 1940, it's all pretty much free to use. Hmmm. WMG have been douches about that sort of thing for ages though - apparently they still fleece people about $2m a year for "Happy Birthday" which has very doubious copyright protection.

Just to avoid that kak in future - I'm afraid I may have to resort to purely "recent" productions published purely under the CC license such as the Swatsinger track at the start. A shame cos I love that old time delta blues. I've got some stuff of my own I can use as well, but that would be better in a further future/space setting methinks (lotsa DnB, lectronica and angry guitars)

is it legal to take something PD and copyright it yourself? that doesn't sound quite right. And why would they target your video over the millions of AMV's on youtube that have blatantly copyrighted material? That means that someone reported the video, which means that there are several accounts of douchecanoe here.

on a more related note, I like the "Earthshock" logo in monochrome a lot, good job.

Nah, because it's being used as a licensed work would be used and it is in the WMG database as being "variably registered", Youtube automatically sample bits of your video (that's what they do when they process it), and compare it with their DRM database - any similarities are flagged and a ticket is raised automatically. It is generally fine to load it up if it's full song as it will link it to a song purchase, which the companies like.

If I had any inclination to fight against a multi-billion industry for the right to use a recording, I would, but I got no cash with which to do it. That's how they get away with it. I'm also pretty sure, after reading more about, that they may be right - annoyingly. The US copyright laws only cover audio recordings after 1975 or thereabouts. Audio recordings previous to this are covered up to about 2064 with a blanket "Possessions" law - with no time-out til then. Technically it's Archive.org I'm concerned with - as they may be guilty of far greater transgressions, whole bodies of work on there. We live, we learn. It didn't really fit anyway - sounded too much like it was trying to be Fallout.

As for someone "shopping" us - whilst possible, the response was too quick IMHO, looked far more automatic response time than Lawyer time (which is measured in the same scale as geology) - perhaps Geeshie is alive and well and making a mint off all those old recordings still...

Out of controversy...

I've storyboarded out a couple of minutes which I've began to model - this time on the surface. I've decided not to show Earth in all its deserty glotry until a last zoom out shot.

Anyways, the theme is "everyone for themselves" on this story. A couple of super roaches climbing over a plateau ridge, being aimed at by a lone gunman. Who gets shot by a bunch of hardnuts, who then shoot the roaches, then proceed to assault a town with a good water source. Then chaos...

Here's the non-controversial element of the video.

Okay, I've given it some thought, and I reckon the first set of forces that should be developed is -

Raiders
Settlers

Giving an almost Wildwest feel to the first battles, with minimal tech interference. I've settled Europa-city just east of France, and New Washington on the other side of the Icelandic Atlantic Range. I reckon these would be two good locales to base our development.

So, we need names. and archetypes.

Okay pilgrims, saddle up. I'm looking at furthering the cause of Earthshock, cos it's my pet pal. Over the next month I'm gonna concept up some plans for it in development and maybe even do some game stuff based around my new semi-rpg system.

I'm currently thinking of the Earthshock game system to be a "Wasteland Crawler" - like a dungeon crawler but with a more open aspect. The basic premise is that of player vs Enemies affair, but with scope for being groups of 5-10 models against each other. There would be several scenarios for each instance or method of play. I quite fancy it being able to have a self-contained format, and may even see if making a boxable product out of it - with clippable figures for upgrades and such. As long as the battle/exploration mechanic works simply this sort of thing should be awesome.

Such an amount of projects going through kickstarter just now, it could be worthwhile exploring.

SWDs rule of thumb number one - if YOU'd like to play it, then it's probably worth looking at.
