A quick prototype game I started making yesterday, to try to get back into Coppercube.

Scene was created using billboards and standard dynamic lighting (no post-processing).

Final game will hopefully be a basic "Space Invaders" clone, with waves of T-800 Machines zig-zagging towards the player who can strafe left/right to shoot and hide behind the wall.

Will include upgrades (for Weapon and Speed) if bonus is collected during the round.

Enemy waves will get faster and stronger with different coloured Terminators: metallic silver, black, red, gold, blue.

Will include different scenes for variety - but the game will not become any more complex or fancy than that until it's 100% working.

Thanks coa and andgameplay! Yes, I'm really happy with how it looks, considering how simple it was to make - just a single texture on the Terminator model (applied as a sphere map in irrlicht settings)...

The eyes are just billboards which I drew and attached (childed) to the head...

As for the game, it's pretty much going to be exactly as you see in the demo. Today, I've added LASER beams and Guns and got the Terminators to weave in and out between the buildings, shooting at the camera.Health decreases and blood spatters when hit and game restarts when player health is zeroed. Tomorrow, will add the Player model to hide behind the wall and can pop out to shoot back at them.

Will update the link when I've added a bit more to it.
