FPS Game Devlog #1 - Starting Out

18th February, 2021

"Why don’t I try and get into game development?"

That was the question I asked myself this morning when I was getting out of bed. Now, before then I had only been doing art commisions and had never really thought about making a full game.

There were a lot of games I liked on Roblox, mainly FPS shooters such as Phantom Forces, Arsenal, CounterBlox, RECOIL, et cetera. Because of my love towards this genre, I decided to start development on an FPS game. I already had a fair bit of scripting knowledge, so I thought I might as well give it a shot.

I decided to become a solo developer since I didn’t want to have to go through the process of hiring scripters, builders, GUI designers and more - I could always learn it myself along the way.

I started development today and so far, I’ve got most of the FPS framework done.

Things I have finished (for now)

• The placement of the gun on the player’s camera
• Shooting system
• Walking and shift to sprint
• ADS’ing

Things to complete

• Fix the kill cam!!!1
• Add reload animation
• Add gamemodes
• Add maps
• Add a currency system
• Fix literally everything

If you want to submit maps, please do!! It would benefit me a lot and save some time. You can DM the maps to me via Discord (IceKing1x#6969).

Notes

• Currently the AK-47 is the only gun avalible.
• There is a zombie model and a test dummy to try out if nobody else is in the server.
• I will be adding other guns soon, including an M4A1, Remington 700, etc

You can play the beta prototype for yourself if you want: [BETA] Operation: Strife - Roblox

You can leave feedback in the replies as well, it would be appreciated!! I will try to post another devlog soon, stay tuned.

You can submit maps if you want! It would help a lot, although I can’t pay any makers. If you want to send map models, dm me on Discord at IceKing1x#6969
