Battle Fortress Tortoise Update
Description
Experience the thrill of making life and death battle decisions in a chaotic tower defense shooter on the back of a giant moving tortoise.

Battle Fortress Tortoise (BFT) is a 3rd Person Shooter in which the player takes on the role of the Commander of a clan of gnomes aboard a large tortoise.

The game exists on a colossal scale not only in size but also in numbers, where little people must defend themselves in a world of giants.

Each battle conveys a feeling of controlled chaos, the sound of each cannons fire, the yelling of your crew and the drum of the hyenas, explosions and body’s flying.

Battle Fortress Tortoise is a full scale game title developed by a team of 22 members during 8 months of production in Unreal Engine 3. It was developed as a student project at UCF's Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy.

****UPDATE****

At It's current stage BFT serves as a brief, albeit exciting, proof of concept. All of the basics are in place and working, but It's currently a much smaller version of what we would ultimately like to see it become. That's where you come in. Like you, we too would like to see multiplayer, more creatures, and tortoise on tortoise combat. Unfortunately these lofty goals can't be achieved without proper support from the gaming community. We hope that with enough attention and support we can get the resources necessary to make BFT the game we first conjured up many months ago (and being in the top 100 will make that much easier). So tell your friends, and tell them to tell their friends. We can make this happen! Huzzah!

For those that may be interested, you can download a copy of the game when it was finished for the class project it was developed in. Keep in mind that no one is actively working on the game anymore, and hasn't for a while so no one can help with any technical issues.

Hello everyone,

I contacted Chris Russell, someone who worked on the original project and now works at EA. He let me know that production of the game has ended and that most of the original team has been hired by other companies.

There has been some interest by "prospect companies" in buying the IP rights, but it is unlikely that will actually happen.

So, for the time being, this amazing game seems to be officially dead. Very sad indeed, but I appreciate Mr. Russell's time in answering my query.
