    Assalamu Alaykum (Peace be with you)

    As you may know, recently I had to put offline my project UDK Ultimate Engine (the custom build of UDK Engine with PS3 and Xbox360 Export Support) for copyrights reasons (EPIC asked me to do this), however, they were very kind with me and allowed me to keep using my custom version of UDK to publish my games, I even signed with them an Unreal Engine License Commercial Amendment, so now I am a Licensed Unreal Engine Developer and I am ready to pursue my dream of life!

    DISCLAIMER: In this game, the player does not shoot Israeli civilians, women, children, elderly, only soldiers. Also in this game there are NO images of sexual content, illicit drugs, religious desecration, hate of speech against any group, ethnicity or religion, anti-Semitist propaganda against Jews, Nazi propaganda or boasting of any terrorist groups and / or other unlawful acts. This game only contains the virtual representation of the Palestinian Resistance Movement against the Israeli Military Occupation, which is officially recognized by the United Nations (UN). I even sent this project for Brazillian's Government Justice Department, Age Rating Sector (kinda Brazillian ESRB) for their approval and age rating. This project was approved, now I am just waiting for the Age Rating Information of my game which will be available very soon on their website (http://portal.mj.gov.br/ClassificacaoIndicativa/jsps/ConsultarJogoForm.do)

    I am Brazillian, from Arab ascendance, my father is from Palestine, and something I never revealed before, and one of the biggest reasons of me creating this game, is that my father was a Fighter of the Palestine Resistance Movement, he fought against Israel Army in the Lebanese Civil War on the 70's, and from since I was a kid, I felt too much proud of my father and the Palestine People in General, because of their Strenght and Constant Resistance. So this game is kinda tribute to the Brave People of Palestine and their Resistance against Military Occupation.

    Fursan al-Aqsa - Knights of al-Aqsa Mosque is a Third Person Action Game on which you play as Ahmad al-Ghazzawi, a young Palestinian Student who was unjustly tortured and jailed by Israeli Soldiers for 5 years, had all his family killed by an Israeli Airstrike and now after getting out from the prison he seeks revenge against those who wronged him, killed his family and stolen his homeland.

    This game is being developed during the course of 4 years by one person (me, Nidal Nijm), in a custom version of UDK Engine (Unreal Engine 3), using the best technology to tell a compelling story through a game packed with non stop action, advanced 3D graphics and modern gameplay mechanics, however keeping the soul of old school shooters. You will play in missions accross ground, sea and sky, you have many objectives to accomplish in each mission, epic bosses battles, powerful guns, vehicles to drive, helicopters to take down, and much more. Expect a LOT of Action and Adrenaline!!!

    This game also is greatly inspired by Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid, Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Insurgency Sandstorm.

    I hope you enjoy this game and support me by purchasing it, Insha Allah (God's Willing). I decided to release this game as episodes (missions), each mission by a symbolic value just to cover my development costs, as everyone knows that develop a game is not an easy task, it takes a lot of time and efforts. It will be a very small value, however any copy sold of this game is very important and will trully help me. Please buy this game to support me (whenever I release it), Insha Allah (God's Willing), because I trully need your help!

    I hope untill the end of this month (november) release a free demo of this game (for PC, PS3 and Xbox360), so people can enjoy and feel what my game is about, enjoy the gameplay, feel the action. I plan to make something similar to Metal Gear Solid VR Missions (If you may remember), on which I will teach the player the basis of the Gameplay, like training the player for the true battle that will come on the final game. About the first episode (mission), I hope to release it untill the end of December, beginning of January 2020.

    Now I will show you some trailers of the game itself, a beta version of this game. I am already redoing everything from scratch, remaking the models, animations, and maps, raising the overall quality, polishing things here and there, to deliver a high quality product for all people enjoy.

    Also you can see the new updated model for my character protagonist, and the difference between the new player model and the old one, so you all can be sure I am commited to do my best on this game. These old models were just placeholders for me develop the basic game programming framework and features.

    Hello guys!

    Something important I forgot to say.

    This map, which will be the first mission (episode) of my game:

    [​IMG]

    It's a remake of a Custom Map for Counter Strike Global Offensive, the map name is de_heat.

    Whenever I create my maps, I like to take many games as reference, and I prefer to use Source Engine Games Maps, because it's easy to import on 3dsmax, and use the original map as a reference to model my map over the original map.

    I have choosen this map, because it's similar to the real city of "Old Jerusalem", which is where the first mission of my game takes place.

    However, I contacted the original author of this map from since I began creating this map in UDK Engine, last year. And he was very kind to me and gave me authorization to remake his map for my game:

    [​IMG]

    However, as I told before, these screenshots of this map, and the gameplay trailers, are a bit outdated, because I am already working on chaing this map a bit, especially chaning some assets (props) which are from Valve (the devs of Counter Strike) and not from the map author.

    I am replacing these assets with some assets created by me and others purchased on 3D Marketplaces arround the internet. This is very common especially for indie and solo developers, purchase assets, download royalty-free assets to use whenever developing a game.

    Imagine if all indies would make games creating all the assets from scratch. You would not see so many indie games arround there.

    The same is truth for my new updated protagonist model. This new updated model is a mix of character parts from many models, which I purchased recently to update my 3d models library, which was a bit outdated (the marjority of my old models were from the time of Counter Strike Source).

    [​IMG]

    However, you may think: "Man, getting ready models to create a game is very easy, because you have done almost nothing". I must inform you that the truth is far away for this thought. In game development there is no a "copy and paste", or "plug and play" solution, just one click and your game is done! No, even using pre-made 3d Models, you will never get the model which you want to fit on your project unless you do the dirty work of modifying this asset to fit on your game. Yeah, there is a LOT of work to be done.

    I have done a lot of manual changes on this model, in example, the head cover was untill the neck, however I wanted this headcover to raise down untill the chest, so I manually modelled that extra part to make it reach the chest. Also the original texture was a plain black, so I manually created in Photoshop this Shemagh Texture in red color, the traditional Palestine Head Cover. Also to add some more depth, I did bake some small shadows on the texture to make it look more realistic and give a kind of fake volume to this head cover.

    Another change I have done, because I am using the default UDK Skeleton (Unreal Tournament 3 Rig), and the default Animation System in UDK Engine (UE3) is pre programmed to work with the UT3 Skeleton outside the box, I did manually rig the character mesh to the UT3 Skeleton, as you can see in the video. And the character arms I used for this model, were a bit larger than the UT3 Skeleton, so I had to manually reduce the arms lenght, thus repositioning the hands aswell, to fit perfectly to UT3 Skeleton (so I don't have to re-program the Animation System).

    Cheers and untill next update!

    No my friend. The villain of this game is the Israeli Army, soldiers, not inoccent civillians, nor women, nor children, nor elderly, nor jews, nor christians.

    You are kinda "Super Bad Ass Arabian Rambo" in a personal quest for Revenge against Israel Army :D :D :D :D

    For those who accused my game of terrorist propaganda: I sent the game synopsis alongside gameplay to Brazillian Government Justice Department for Approval and Age Rating. My game was approved, and got Age Rating +18!


    [​IMG]

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    For the mod who edited my post "I've removed the black font colours from your post to clear up visability on the dark theme, congratz with the approval of your game mate! -DhS"

    Thanks dude, I did not know because I only use the standard white and blue theme for this forum.

    About my project, yes, this is extremely important for me, because of the nature of the theme of my game (Israel x Palestine Conflict), which is a very sensitive theme, I found of extreme importance to get some kind of legal support for my game, to avoid future problems here in Brazil and elsewhere. I don't have cash to pay for an attorney, however, after searching on the internet, I found this free service of Brazillian Government, Age Rating for Media Project Approval. The problem is that it takes too long, almost 3 months, however, finnaly yesterday I received this document on my email.

    So now that means I can work with peace of mind to express my ideas in my game, because, a Game is a form of art and entertainment, and as an artist, I need to have freedom of speech and expressal of my ideas and visions.

    So now I am more than happy:rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

    P.S: I am sure all you guys will love this game!

    You shouldn't have to justify the content of your game to the intolerant members on this board or to anyone else in society. It's not like anyone here hasn't played COD that features the ability to play as children killing other people with or including ability to kill innocent people and animals. Fuck the politically correct horse shit. Your game looks great. I'll look into it and spread the word.

    Thanks my friend for your support and compliments. Even though I agree 100% with your statement, however, as this game will be a commercially project, and I want to earn some profit from this game, I need to make these statements, because many forums did ban me, and I am trying to get some visibility by pitching many game journalists, reviewers and the like. In the end, it's kinda business. So I need to be light. As you can see, I am not making Anti-Israel propaganda, or talking about the conflict itself. I am focusing on the game itself, using the war theme just as a background for my game. I could not create a game on which you are just an Arab shooting at Israelis. I need to create a plot, a history, some reasons why the player needs to kill Israeli Soldiers and so on. I have taken a lot of time for me, almost 3 months to think on a compelling history, yet simple, not too much complex like Metal Gear Solid.

    Next step after I finish publishing about my game on some more forums and websites, will be update the model of IDF Soldier, in the same quality level of the new updated protagonist model.

    After updating the IDF Soldier, and making some promo material, some new banners and wallpapers, I will try to add Multiplayer Split Screen for this game. I know UDK on PC supports this outside the box. I just will see if it run on consoles aswell (split screen), then be prepared to revive the Golden Days of Goldeneye 007 on Nintendo 64!!!!

    Cheers!!!

    just saying, green red white flag reminds me Italian flag, it's also the land where Fascism was born, also featured Black flag with white arabian? letters resembles a lot Jiha flag, I think this is not a merely coincidence.

    We all knew how corrupt Brazilian gov. and their flawed system, i think that's the only one you could get your game passed.

    So arabs are not allowed to write certain way because you think it is terrorism? Maybe go and study instead of getting afraid of things which you don’t understand.

    I'm guessing this is sarcasm/joking but in case it's not :P Human brain does things like that. The less familiar with something you are, the more your brain is willing to plop it into categories it doesn't belong. Reason some parents think every pokemon is a pikachu, or every console is a nintendo, or why some people think all white/black/etc people look the same. It just comes from a place of not knowing. So, if you want to understand the distinction and why it's important, you'll have to learn.

    I'm hoping this game has a strong educational component. Or at least enough for me to understand the struggle. I would love to learn more about the history of these events. Looks like a lot of passion and love has gone into this, keep it up!

    Hello my friend. The red, green and white color, are indeed the colors of Palestine Flag. The eagle is also a symbol of palestine, it is the eagle of Salahudeen (Saladin), one of the greatest leaders of Islam (he was not Arab, he was from Kurdistan).

    The black flag with white letters, was used many years before being used by Jihadist Groups nowadays, it is one of the many flags used by muslims through history (the writing is just "There is no God than God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God"). I am not aware of where you have seen a black flag with arabic letters in my game, as I am trying to avoid these controversial details as much as I can. Also, I am not promoting Fascism, as this is against Islam, Islam (I am not saying Arab Countries and Governments) is against corruption and dictatory. And Islam is against racism, because Fascism was a Racist Regime also, whereas in Islam all people are equal, regardless their skin color.

    I don't care if Brazil Govern is corrupt, what matters for me is that I am doing something which is not considered as illegal on my country, so I will not face any criminal punishment, because I am not doing something against the laws of my country.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    My game is not just about killing Israeli Soldiers, is also about saving palestinians civillians. On the second mission, in example, the Gaza Strip is being heavilly bombed by a Giant Israeli B51 Bomber. So the mission objective is to search for many injured civillians under destroyed buildings, an escort them to a bunker. After saving these civillians, the player needs to find a jeep armed with anti air missile launcher to defeat the B51 Bomber, in a Boss Battle, where the airplane flies over the city and the player chases the Bomber from the ground running on the jeep (just a rough idea).

    And yes, I am dedicating all my soul in this project. As I have a wife and daughter, and a real life job (Web Designer), I spend many nights (without sleep) working on my game). Many times my wife did wake me up from my desk in the middle of the nighs :D

    I spent the last two weeks promoting my game all arround the web by registering on another websites, forums, from brazil, USA, Arabic Countries, and many other scene hacking websites. Many of them banned me :D, however, many allowed me. And now I have almost 70 websites to regularly publish my game updates.

    I learned that Marketing is so important as Developing, and I am working with both, side by side. I will reach sucess with the help of GOD (Allah), and my friends here on GBA Temp and elsewhere.

    Tommorrow I will come back to development, and next update will be update the IDF (Israel) Soldier Model on the same level of quality of the new model of Ahmad al-Ghazzawi.

    Also I will try to add a multiplayer mode on this game, to increase the replay value of this game.

    Cheers and thanks for ALL comments.
