Dead Lab - Horror Game
 
Enter the haunting world of Dead Lab, the latest First Person Shooter from ever growing developers Chrome Games.

Dead Lab is a short but creepy zombie apocalyptic story about a man who wakes only to find himself as the last survivor in an infected laboratory.

You wake alone deep underground in Uni Lab 6. You are contacted by an unnamed man who offers to help you escape the deep and dead halls of the lab.

As you wander through the halls of Uni Lab 6, you discover the horrors of the events that occurred before your wake.

With the unnamed mans help and your instincts, you have one goal and one goal only; escape.

Featuring fully animated cinematic sequences, haunting music, and a unique setting, Dead Lab delivers an experience that will keep you awake at night.

Its not one of those "Win a free iPod touch" surveys is it?

jediaction 08-02-2012 09:40 AM

Not at all. It's a survey so I can see what everyone thought about the game. I use that information to make the game better.

Nighthawk0973 08-02-2012 11:34 AM

Hey. I'm not going to download the game (sorry, I just don't have permission to go off and download every other game lol) but from what I saw with the video I am very impressed. It's not groundbreaking technology, but I think that high-graphical quality is something HIGHLY overrated in games. You just need graphics engine that looks good enough and makes the game play well. You good the lighting done well, however the voice acting is probably my primary concern with a game of this genre. Not only is it sort of "meh" (no offense, I understand exactly why you couldn't get real voice actors, I have that same problem) but in a survival horror I think people like games like RE1-2 etc. Slow pacing, scary, hard, and that sense of being alone. That means no side characters telling them were their supposed to go. They know they are supposed to get out of there, because they walk around and find out they don't really like it all that much :D

And when the character talks to himself, that is also something I think I would rather have to think in my head. Especially since he just seems to be stating the obvious lol.

Other then that it's better then I could do with Unity and I'm glad to see you moving on from Alice into more advanced work!

jediaction 08-03-2012 09:45 PM

Thanks for the opinions, but yes, the graphics are getting upgraded soon. I did the best I can without good modeling skills or Unity Pro. A new graphics update will be coming shortly so stay tuned. The feel of the game wasn't "all alone, scary, and hard." I was mainly going for creepy/scary and alone. Hard...meh, not my concern. It's just a demo anyway. It's a test project to see if people would play this if it was a full game. Btw, you can't download it because you are not allowed?

Nighthawk0973 08-04-2012 09:32 AM

Yes I can't download because I'm not aloud. I think that if you made a version in a browser window via Unity Web Player then I could play ;)

Also, I felt like the graphics were fine for the game. Just be careful when upgrading, as my computer isn't the greatest so I might not be able to play the game lol. Again, another reason why I believe graphics are highly overrated, just so long as you can tell what the objects in the game are and you're able to set the proper mood the graphics are fine.

I am thinking about starting up Unity again, but I want to cover everything I would need to know before downloading. I know I would need basic modeling experience and texturing experience. But what scripting would I need. I think you need either C#, Javascript or... Boo? idk what it is exactly. So basically what did you have to learn to make this and did you use any pre-existing scripts or copied online scripts, because I would prefer to do everything from scratch for my projects.

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

jediaction 08-04-2012 10:12 AM

Java Script and C# are good to use. Btw, I can't make the game work in web player, it's to big. It's complicated to. More more went into that game than most people think.

Nighthawk0973 08-04-2012 06:26 PM

I totally understand what you mean. Especially on my level, when I'll spend forever making a puny little 2D java game, thinking it's the greatest thing in the world, only to be let down by harsh criticism etc. :D

But if it really is that big then that pretty much rules out me downloading it. Sorry.

jediaction 08-05-2012 07:01 AM

k, but I'm not getting any harsh criticism. You are a bit confusing. The graphics are not that bad, and they will be getting an update soon. I don't know about a new video, but it will be updated.

Nighthawk0973 08-05-2012 08:50 AM

Oh whatever. ;)

It's an online thing. It's hard to communicate exactly what we mean by using only text. :D

beachbum111111 08-09-2012 09:23 PM

Make the character have dementia like dead space 2. The scariest thing in a game is when you have no idea what's real or fake.

[QUOTE=beachbum111111;50705]Make the character have dementia like dead space 2. The scariest thing in a game is when you have no idea what's real or fake.[/QUOTE]

Maybe, if I ever make a full Dead Lab game. I have other projects currently in the works.

arty-fishL 08-16-2012 12:36 PM

How'd I miss this? I would buy this game, definitely. :D

jediaction 08-16-2012 08:55 PM

Thank you. Version 1.15 came out today for Windows 32bit, 64bit, and Mac. Btw, responding to your feed back Arty, there are easter eggs, and there are collectables. If you go to your statistics, they say "clip boards" or "logs." There are hidden clip boards throughout the game and each one that you collect has a message on it that tells the story of how the infection started. Look for them around the game and then check your menu. If you collect all 5 you unlock God Mode.

jediaction 09-06-2012 07:56 PM

[QUOTE=jediaction;50963]Removed mute audio button from menu[/QUOTE]
Why would you do something like that?

jediaction 09-09-2012 07:45 AM

Because you can do it in-game. Having it in the menu just didn't look as good as I wanted it to and I never got used to it being there. I just decided to delete it. The audio can still be controlled from the pause menu.

beachbum111111 09-09-2012 03:29 PM

I haven't played the new patch yet because I am not on my computer but is the shotgun glitch still there?

jediaction 09-10-2012 10:26 AM

Which glitch? The one that I know of that you ran into was the disappearing pistol glitch and that one will be fixed in the next patch.
