Dot Product, have been busy beavering away on our
little civil experimentation project,
Wildfire. Check out our hub at
Wildfire Worlds for all the details.
Our first Tech Demo for Windows PCs has just been finished and
is available for download right now at:
What is Wildfire?
Watch our cute paper toy society go about its daily business!
See the inhabitants scuttle around doing people stuff! Now chuck a
large spanner in there and cause chaos. Inspired by the oppression
and austerity driven riots throughout the world, in Wildfire the
player is an agent for change. Inspire unrest in the population and
keep the revolution going. And when the landscape is littered with
charred ruins, what then? Watch plants grow and reclaim the ruins.
Animals thrive in the wake of your destruction and the circle of
life continues. Eventually ( after a bit of lunch ) a new thriving
environment will be born and you can f**k that up as well. We at
Dot Product don’t believe in “Game Over”.
It’s never over. It just keeps on giving.
Featuring a childlike simulation of what really motivates
people; in a nutshell, money, coffee and shoes. Wildfire’s
parameter editor allows the player to experiment with how people
react to their pokes. Want to smash a highly efficient police state
or a world of Falafel Festival ravers? Set them up and then knock
them down! Or watch them do it themselves. Especially with the
falafel lot and their special mushrooms.
Lovingly hand crafted and made from recycled paper, cheap
imported plastics and unstable batteries, Wildfire Worlds allows
you to fold against the dotted lines and burn it all down.
As for the future ? Our propagation engine can simulate
anything. The spread of ideas: inspire literacy and peaceful
protest in a war torn society. How may peaceful protesters can you
throw at a bunch of rabid soldiers before they feel the twang of
guilt and put down their guns? The spread of disease: a few
twiddles of the propagation engine and watch the birth of a zombie
materialist contagion. They should have washed their hands!
Who are Dot Product?
Dot Product is a collection of the greatest
minds in video games. People responsible for games so cool you cant
possibly have heard of them. Basically… 3 grim old
feckers who dig video games and anarchy + some younger more
energetic types to make us look good.
James: After 170 years experience in 3D
animation and dealing with media darlings, James has decided to try
his hand at something far more immature.
Miles: Disillusioned 40 something coder
gimp, who is always just a few moments away from killing:-
Mike: An artist apparently. Although you
would never know it looking at the state of him.
Janon: A brain wrapped in
an enigma covered in hot sauce
Having studied Anatomy for years and become the best
modeller this side of the 49th parallel we waste his time
with this nonsense, soon he will have his revenge.
Milian: Well on his way to becoming the
coolest Animation Director in the world, Milian spends his summer
mucking about with bits of card and giving them life.
