Rise of the Gigantes
v1.35


Introduction / Author's word

This is few hour gameplay long single player RPG. Map is fully voice recorded, it also contain various models as well as two ancient-greece-like music tracks so that is the reason of its size. Map contain over 40 custom units, 18 custom items, certain spells are up to choose. Gameplay is intense, it sometimes require to be smart or to be very quick, it is also needed to know game mechanics to play successfully. Map contain two game modes: Normal & Advanced. Advanced one is harder, it also may produce more items, enemy units or even unit special ability changes. There are 4 terrain and environment art types. Map is not protected. It took 18 days to create the map. (2012-06-20 - 2012-07-07)

Why to pay the time and download? Because it is challenging, intense, atmospheric and skill & insight requiring game even though it is rather short. It is also based on an interpretation of ancient greek myth. I am also not planning to add new hero or something, I am not planning to reduce its size as well. Map may cause leaks, but it is single player so it is not a matter of importance, leaks are minor. Feel free to do with the map whatever you wish.

Storyline

Time ago, Zeus the deity of the skies imprisoned dangerious and evil titans in the pit of Tartarus for the greater good. The titans were the blood of Gaia the goddess of Earth, sons of her. Tremendous anger filled Gaia and she now seek to dethrone Zeus himself and to unleash her anger upon earth.

She gave birth to the tribe Gigantes and one creature known as the father of all monsters. She sent the creature and the tribe of giants upon earth and Zeus in order to exact her avenge.

The horrors pierce earth like never before and it seem to be far from ending.

    Overall an awesome RPG experience!
    • No need to mention the mana cost in the description (Volcano Slash
    • Create an exclamation mark over a quest target
    • Make picking up gold easier, by either making it automatic when you walk over it or just by changing its model
    • Create a portal at the end of an area which moves you to the greek town again so you don't have to walk all the way back

    Thank you for your positive replies. :)
    Thanks to Vengeancekael for approval and the rating too.
    I agree, I was thinking about it since it is sometimes annoying to pick up the gold due to its small area of click if it is the right way to call it. But the model itself is so nice!
    You can actually purchase a stone from the shop in town which do the job.

    Just wondering, can the camera lock be removed so that it is like the standard Warcraft 3 camera?

    Thank you for your kind words. :)
    In short, no.

    Camera lock on hero was made for comfort. For me, for example, it is way better than a loose camera, it add stability.

    As for heights, as you may have already noticed, it is locked only in certain places, such as in Temple, on the bridge or fighting a boss. You need camera lock in order to keep the distance from the ground. For example, on the bridge if normal camera was set, you would see extremely zoomed view, because the ground is rather far from the bridge. In temple you need camera extension because the path is narrow enough to ruin camera heights, it may cause zoming again and loss of camera view space. For boss you need camera lock only for bigger camera area of view so that you don't bother of big unit size taking half of the screen and simply see more around yourself because sometimes there is a lot of happening around, height also help to see where Rune spawn. So in order to set the height, camera lock is needed.

    If you wish to explore map before playing, open it through Editor.

    Wow Medieval RPG! COOL! Ill try it now and after that Ill rate this!

    Umm... Is this a single or LAN cuz I notice the size to be 8mb+...???

    :fp:The game looks like you put so much effort in it! The storyline are good and the enemies too! And I even like Medieval RPGs like this but the only problem is the voice.... The voice of Zeus makes me sleepy.... Dont know why but you must put some echo in the voice to make it better....maybe... So here:

    :fp:STORYLINE: 5/5 - The storyline is very well made!
    :fp:GAMEPLAY: 4/5 - Like the gameplay, liked the skills of Argus and I dont know why but the game makes me interested!
    :fp:VOICES: 2/5 - Zeus voice sucks a little but no offense!
    :fp:OVERALL: 11/15 - Thats that! Make more updates and maybe youll get a perfect 15!

    Thank you for your quick and positive review, Allain55X. Next time try not to tripple post, use Edit function in order to avoid troubles.

    You can always read the description and find out if it is LAN or single player.

    Well, you don't really hear Zeus a lot, only little in the beginning and ending so I believe you may not fall asleep, hehe. And yeah, some echo would be nice, but I have no tools to make the effect.

    Thank you. Hope you would not be disappointed.

    Thanks :) And give it a shot!

    Sorry for that. I noticed having fatal error but very rarely, I actually did colide with Fatal Error only once during the very intense boss fight I saved and loaded, then I got one. I suppose it is because of the amount of actions happening during the game saving and when it try to load, it probably can not load all that moment happening data, some may be lost, this bring to error, well that's how I understand it. But sometimes I saved during the fights and it was alright, never bumped into error again.

    I honestly have no idea how to fix it. The only good thing about it is that it is rare. Try to save game in few save files in order to avoid this, but I think you would not bump into it again, I hope.

    hmm really good map :D
    but... it's really annoying that i cannot follow the path of Gaia. You know there's an option when you meet Zeus to turn against him, I did that, killed him and then BAM campaign end.
    Also, there is a bug when battling zeus. If you go counter-clockwise around the mountain when you are at the bottom and going towards the right corner, you will get teleported to the right corner (or where you appear when first entering the mountain) (zeus will be teleported too if he follows you there), I did that a couple of times until I actually got teleported back at the Greek temple instead of the right corner (don't ask me how), of course Zeus followed me and the Greek troops attacked him (kinda funny though).

    I made an account just to comment on this map!

    I haven't completed yet but after killing more than half the giants, I have to say that the map is really well made. The story is great, the graphics are great as well. Despite how some of the voices sound, I was able to enjoy the map :p

    There was a bug I found easy to exploit though. The "Q" skill when maxed out gives burst movement speed for 1.5 seconds. I found out cancelling the casting animation still provides me the movement speed burst. This cancels the nuke and thus doesn't require mana but pretty much gives me godlike movement speed.

    Thanks :) Well you are following Gaia once you betray Zeus, because you join Gigantes, and Gigantes are sent by Gaia. So you think I should rename the button from mentioning Gigantes to joining Gaia? Hmm, that perhaps may be more solid, because Gaia is god, Gigantes only some savage giants. I may mention Gaia in next patch.

    Hmmm.. The only way you can kill Zeus is by using cheats in my opinion, but yeah, if you somehow manage to kill Zeus, game is over and you win, because you joined Zeus' enemies and then you killed him. Entire storyline is about saving Zeus and humanity, but if you pick not to and success, everything is solved and Gaia triumph. If you manage to kill Zeus at level of 1 then you are worth to be victorious right away, hehe.

    Indeed,I had this problem once, then I tried to avoid walking there, haha. But hmm, it is probably due to Waygate standing there just hidden, I think I know how to solve it easily, I'll try, thanks for the notice.

    Hm, thank you for your time then :) Good to hear that, I am not a professional voice actor at all, but if it did not cause you a major bother, a compliment for me then.

    Woah, never tried cancelling that one. No idea how to fix it at the moment, first thoughts about boolean and stuff, I'll try to test that out. Thank you for the notice.

    Ugh, somewhy Edit function is gone, there is no Edit button anymore so I have to double post, I may merge once Edit button appears. Woah, this post have Edit funcion while the rest don't.

    I just realised that Argus have no idea what's going on, so I think I cannot mention Gaia in dialog, because Zeus only after the dialog tells him about Gaia.

    Man, can you please tell me how you cancel the ability? I tried to cancel it, but it only cancel after throwing the attack. If I begin to cast, it pause me and shoot, only after shot I can cancel the casting so it means I activate ability no matter what. Well, I could not exploit the way you did, can you tell me how you did that? Well, in v1.2 I slightly changed the ability, now it trigger when cancelled and when finished casting instead of only when start to cast, which is more beneficial and more time winning. Tell me if you are able to exploit now. If you do not wish to repaly the map, open through editor and set your level to max. Thanks.

    I cancelled the ability by pressing "H". In 1.1, I could exploit it at will. However in 1.2, I cannot do so.

    On a sidenote, I did edit the map and set my level to the max. The problem this time seems to be that I do not get the speed boost at all. The second ability "W" also doesn't seem to regenerate any mana at all. I hope it's not just me.

    Please read the description. It is written on purpose.
    Ah, but now I can abuse it even in 1.2, not sure at the moment what to do about it.
    That's weird, I did set the level but speed boost and mana regain works perfectly to me.

    Edit: Now I see that when Hold Position is used to stop the casting, it sometimes mess up the ability and it no longer produce speed boost. Trying to solve it at the moment.
