BLAZE - mechforces is now Greenlit!
Update 0.98.2
The Bots
The most important improvement in this update includes the introduction of bots for the PvP matches. Bots can be used to balance a match with odd players and for training purposes. They coordinate as a team and are able to perform all the key tasks for every game mode, such as capturing the flag, conquering outposts, repairing damaged structures and more.. For the time being they miss only some ability like construction, point with a Probe Laser or use Beacons.



Their AI is quite complex and employs several advanced techniques in order to come up with interesting strategies and to mimic human-behaviour. First, they are smart enough to analyze the map structure (obstacles layout, objectives, ..) and determine its choke-points, estimating the most probable paths for the attackers. These locations are used to set up ambushes or to place mines. In addition, all the intel information about the players locations, casualties and turrets, are constantly gathered and summarized into a "heat map" which is then used to estimate how much a particular location is safe or dangerous. Exploiting this data, the bots can plan safe routes across the map, select the best objective to attack, find ideal sniping spots, and much more.

The AI programming was both challenging and exciting and required a lot of time and effort. But now it's finally done and we are very happy with the results!

Mosquito Stinger
Following the feedback from our beta tester we have also chosen to split the Missile Launcher in 2 weapons: the Mosquito Stinger has been invented



Vanity appeals
We have also added some vanity stuff, like the new helmet (Far-World Ranger) in the picture below



Full changelog 0.98.2
+ the Bots for PvP have finally arrived! They are able to play in all game modes. The Bots are able to use most weapons and equipment

Game Description

Blaze, a team-based multiplayer game that's gonna get you involved in epic battles packed with action and strategy.

You are going to be a hi-tech soldier, stuck on an unknown solar system, among two human battalions called Gemini Lights and Darkstar Scythe. You'll need to fight your way back home against the savage beasts that infest these planets. And the other human faction is on your way, too.

Blaze game style is revolutionary, mixing adrenalinic battles with RPG features. The strategic side is always on top thanks to the isometric 3D view of the battlefield. To achieve victory, everything matters: organization, cooperation, and fighting skills, of course. Whatever is your role on the battlefield, you will have the chance to gain experience points. XP points are the key to evolve your character's level and gain astonishing – and mysterious – abilities.

In Blaze you're going to be equipped with the widest variety of battle kits. You'll be able to customize your soldier according to various battleground conditions – and to your gaming style – with a nearly unlimited choice of weapons, armour and tools. If you think you're the strategist, pack-up your base with mines, turrets, adaptive-shields, sensors and much more…

A long time has passed since the beginning of the war between the Horde and the Human forces. While the battle has been raging for years, a winner has yet to be determined. Whichever side you choose, Gemini Lights or Darkstar Scythe, you'd better join fast.

One soldier can turn the tide of the whole conflict, act now before it's too late.

Graphics could be better,but as far as gameplay it seems to be good,reminds me of Warhammer.
