Introducing INVERSE our next Minecraft Adventure

Labels: , , , ,


Started working on INVERSE the next RGAP Creative Minecraft Studio's project, since Beta Testing is currently on hold waiting for a co-testor on the Washington Has Fallen Adventure.

INVERSE was conceptualized in 2021 during the introduction of the idea and discussion with several members of the Planet Minecraft Community and additionally in 2022. Originally the idea was to re-create a Minecraft version of the 1980's text adventure graphically of ZORK. Past attempts had been made by other Minecraft creators that failed miserably. However, when reviewing the requirements to create ZORK in Minecraft, I realized that all the coding techniques except one or two had already been designed and developed for the Washington Has Fallen adventure.

First few hours developing the first building in INVERSE

During the final work of 2022 on Washington Has Fallen, the missing requirements that would be needed for ZORK were developed for a mission in WHF, making it now possible to pursue that project.

Unfortunately, Microsoft now owns all of the Infocom games including all eleven of the ZORK releases, which means if developed for commercial releases as intended, it wouldn't be possible due to copyright.

INVERSE will feature an underground environment

ZORK 1 is believed to currently be in the public domain, but after consideration, I decided to develop an original Adventure called INVERSE which will utilized some of the same concepts found in ZORK, but with an original plot, story, characters and objective.

This will make it possible to offer the final version of INVERSE in the Minecraft Marketplace and hopefully help fund future projects.

 Major Progress going into 2023

We did it!
We finished three years of coding and design work on the Washington Has Fallen Minecraft Adventure Project at 11:11 AM New years Eve!
This is an extremely major accomplishment. Now it moves into Beta Testing #3 to clean up, adjust timings, spot final bugs.

Currently Beta #3 is expected to be a two person team doing a play through, spotting bugs and testing for timing of events etc. Assuming nothing major appears that needs fixed, it could move rather quickly compared to the past three years of coding and design work.

Beta #4 is expected to be a team of four to five. Beta #4 is where issues and bugs might occur that could require some re-coding or code modifications based on our prior experience with beta test team #1. When you introduce multiple players into small and confined spaces and then have a lot of code doing various kinds of events behind the scene, Minecraft can become a bit temperamental, and do things like transport players into areas where we did the coding work or into other parts of the world.

It's a great way to begin a new year 2023.
