The New Dawn: Prologue

I've been working on this game for 2 months now. My goal was to create a shooter with a story, and that's what I did. Hopefully you will like it!

This first chapter is more like a demo than a full game, because it is quite short.

Its good, needs polish though

Just for a demo it was good.Some variety on the enemies, faster walking, and better walking animation.Also I couldn't punch.If nothing else, work on graphics, storyline, and make sure it's not buggy.

Already the story is compelling, I hope we get more of it as you go along.


You got a good game here that has a lot of problems that stop it from being a epic game.for one thing its lagy and it has no quality seting.2 you guy moves way to slowly.3 if you run out of life you don't die all that it dus is it says that you have no life.4 you run out of amo to fast i ran out rely fast and hand to hand can't do sh@t.Its a good game with big problems fix the problems and and you will get a 10.


I'm still playing through this, so I can't exactly call this a complete review -- but from what I've seen, it's amazing. :D

For starters, the moving and aiming system work together well (move with W, S, A, and D, shoot by pointing and clicking), and I was surprised at how easy it was to pick up. The graphics are just fine for a top-down game like this -- the people don't look too amazing (the character you play as included), but the environments are surprisingly detailed, including the little scraps of paper you walk over during the course of the first level (as an example).

The music was awesome. I happen to be a huge fan of MaestroRage here on Newgrounds, so I was smiling even though the song is sort of down and you're killing people.

My largest problem with it was the menu, which didn't really tell you when you'd pressed a selection -- for example, when I pressed a different crosshair button, it changed the crosshair, but didn't have any sound or something confirming I'd pressed the button -- normally a clicky sound would be a nice touch. :P

It was a great job -- and I look forward to the next installment. :D
