41
Current Version:1.00.00

It's finally here! I have spent since August 2007 making this game. I have put close to 750 hours into it and you will notice by the great depth in the game. I could never have made this game if it were not for the help of everyone on the GMC Forums (I tried to credit everyone who helped me in the game - you will notice by the extensive credits). Many people have helped me over the last couple of years and you may even be surprised to find yourself in the credits, forgetting you had helped me.

Anyhow, on to the game...

STORYLINE

In 41, an asteroid is spotted approaching Earth. It seems like nothing can be done until a few scientists come up with a breakthrough. They develop a spaceship which can carry only a specified amount of people onto Mars to begin a new life (as a portable bio dome is attached to this spaceship). The famous minds gain first access to the spaceship but in order to fill the rest, they devise a game called 41. Each person in the world is credited two virtual cyborgs. They use these cyborgs to battle others and to defeat the four Conference Masters in order to gain the four medals. These medals work almost as a ticket to the ship. If you can beat the four Conference Masters, you'll be granted access to the ship. Although our protagonist, Chuck, was an orphan and under 18. Therefore he was never granted a cyborg until the very end, when everyone was given a chance to board the ship. Chuck, with a tremendous handicap already, was given only one cyborg as many had been taken and set out on his journey to gain himself a spot on the spaceship to escape the fatal asteroid moving towards Earth.

GAME PLAY

41 has an extensive game play. There are four cyborgs which Chuck can acquire throughout the game each with their own set of unique abilities. There are over 30 other cyborgs in the game which Chuck can battle who have their own abilities. 41 takes skill and wit and throughout the in-game tutorial you will learn how to play and master the game. There are as well items which can be purchased in-game to aid you in your 41 battles.
On top of this, there are many other features in the game that are not just battles. There is an Internet Cafe with a virtual computer, there is a casino, a bar, a disco club, an arcade (with a playable game - a game in a game pretty much), a cave and much more!
Over the many hours I put into 41, you will notice the extensive detail. There are many easter eggs and cheats, as well, which are put in the game. Try to find them all and attempt to complete this extensive video game.
This game has been tested by two beta testers and each person took roughly five hours not including exploring the lands, searching for little tricks, and simply battling random pedestrians, so the game in reality can total close to eight hours.

FINAL WORDS

I hope you will have as much playing the game as I had making it. I am planning on releasing updates if I get enough feedback (which I hopefully will). I am also thinking of entering it in a YoyoGames contest if one with the right category should ever be created therefore I will not post it on YoyoGames (as games already on the site cannot be entered in contests).
If you have any question, feel free to ask me. Unfortunately though, I will be away the next two months and felt it absolutely necessary to post the game at the moment. Feel free to discuss questions with fellow GMC members and I will be back June 27, 2009 to answer questions and sometime at the end of July. Of course, I will be fully back August 14 so I will start taking in user input around then.

Once again I hope you enjoy the game and I want to thank everyone who helped me along the way. Make sure to post your feedback and I will try my best to answer all questions (despite the fact that I'm leaving tomorrow).

Enjoy!

It's not that bad, however the graphics are really in need of some help.

Well some areas of the game have better graphics than others. Although I do agree with you. I am not the greatest at graphics although some buildings or people are better as they were made by others for the game. Hopefully in future versions I can get help from others to improve the graphics. But as you play onwards you will see there is more to 41 than just graphics.

I'm assuming you want feed back, but even though I haven't played much, I'll still reply.

I'm... not really liking this game. I like the story, but battles... well. Am I missing something here? For most of it, it's basically waiting. Until you get to the end, then you have to think a little bit. At the start though, you just hit buttons, trying to get near 41.

Also, the graphics were very bad, and even the movement was buggy. Also, there are spelling and grammar errors, something you never want in a finished game.

Perhaps I haven't given this game much of a chance (I definitely haven't...), but start doesn't real me in very well. Also, I suggest converting your sounds to OGG Vorbis files and using the supersound dll to play them. At least music and other large sounds.

I'm sorry you didn't like it but I really do appreciate the feedback. The game starts off a bit slow and I feared that. I may have to quicken the pace as at the beginning, that's pretty much it, just pressing buttons. But you'll see as you progress that other cyborgs begin using abilities and you will gain new cyborgs and new abilities along with many new areas to explore. In future update, I will certainly speed up the game play as it's quite repetitive at the beginning and new features only start arise a bit later on.

I'm surprised you encountered buggy movement though. As for the spelling/grammar mistakes, I'm not aware of any mistakes but I certainly take your word for it as there is a lot of text so it only seems likely there would be mistakes. Try continuing onwards, the game really starts picking up the pace after the first medal.

Once again, I appreciate the feedback.

I played for about 2 minutes before the game crashed. No error it just crashed. Probably just my computer or something. It seems like an interesting game, just maybe get some help in the graphics dept.

Thanks for your replies. I'm currently working on a newer update involving better graphics and a faster intro. The game is truly fantastic but the introduction may seem a bit lengthy and boring. The new update will fix this but I don't want to release this update until I have more feedback.

Please write back, I spent a lot of time on the game, and if you continue playing you will see the greatness of 41.

Thanks,

Amster
