Project INOva is currently looking for a fun, dedicated and talented team to help create a quirky 3D side scroller game (modification) for the Unreal 2k4 engine. Our main goal for the team and project is to have fun while creating a polished, professional product that will reflect the team's skill level, which will hopefully open doors to the Gaming Industry.

Project INOva will be a very stylized (cartoon) quirky 3D side scroller platformer that will feature two heroes in the right place at the wrong time. The game takes place on an uncharted Island housing a priceless treasure that our two heroes are searching for, little do they know that they aren't the only ones in search of the great Tiki statue.

- The game will be played as a stylized - quirky 3D side scroller, focusing more on out smarting opponents instead of using brute force. The player will have certain challenges and puzzles set out to complete to further the games story. Certain levels will feature unique boss fights that requires the player to “trick” their opponents to defeat them.

- The game will provide a unique “tag-team” system to allow the player to complete each puzzle/ objective/ boss to further themselves through the story. The game will feature 2 playable characters, only one character will be controlled by the player at once, while the CPU controls the other. At any time the player has the ability to switch between the 2 characters, each character has different abilities/ strengths and weaknesses that requires the player to use cooperatively to progress through the game.

- The game will be using the Unreal Tournament 2004 engine (modification). We feel that the Unreal Tournament 2004 engine provides the team with enough power, documentation and support to effectively produce this fun and unique project, from start to finish.

Thanks Antone, currently the team (core team... 3) are just getting some planning, as well as some art done. If we can find a coder, we can really start progressing, so wish us luck :)
