Escape from Godzilla (Godzilla 1985)

Escape from Godzilla (Godzilla 1985)

This game takes place during the movie "Godzilla 1985" Which takes place 30 years after his first appearance. I wanted to make a game that wouldn't take too long to do, and I wanted to use 3D graphics in my game.

This is a fan game that I have made. I am a big fan of Godzilla. Although the latest movies that have been released are all dumb, but there were a few good ones. The original Godzilla or Gojira is my favorite as it is not stupid at all. Godzilla 1985 comes in at second. Godzilla VS Destroyah is third. I think those are the 3 greatest movies for Godzilla, as they have some solid and interesting plot lines.


You will not actually see Godzilla in this game, although you will hear his voice. If any of you have seen the movie "Signs" with Mel Gibson, you'll notice that I tried to capture a certain feel that the movie had, which was that you knew what was going on outside, but you didn't see it. You were concentrating at the task at hand, which was to board the house up and protect the family. I did the same with this game, where you know Godzilla is there, but you dont see him. Instead you try to manage an escape from a building.

Story:

Hiyoki Matsumeio is trapped in a building. He was put there by a famous Japanese gang known as the "Gold Dragons". As a police detective, he seeked to put an end to this gang once and for all. He was captured and brought here to this building. Knowing that Godzilla was attacking Tokyo, they left him there to meet his doom when Godzilla would arrive to those coordinates.

They told him that they were going to kill his wife and son after the whole mess with Godzilla cleared out and things went back to normal.

You cringe at the idea of what they would do to your family. You need to get out of here before Godzilla tramples you and before something terrible happens to your family.

Game Play:

You have 3 minutes to mix and match all the items in the room in order to get out of there. If you don't make it out, Hiyoki and family will die.


The game already has the puzzles designed already. Its a short puzzle, enough to end the game in 3 minutes. I already have the walk animation of my character, 30 frames walking in each direction. That took a while to do.

Now I just need to make the room, which is almost done, I just got to texture it and decide what angle I am gonna use, and how much lighting there should be.

After that, I am making the intro movie, and the 2 end movies. When I am done with that, it will be Released as Chapter 1 of this game.

I am gonna compress the movies into DIVX format, which will save a lot of space and upload/download time. If anyone prefers me not to use DIVX, let me know.

This game is being made in Poser 2 and Blender 2.28. I design my characters in Poser, and then I desing my objects like desks and hair in Blender (Some objects are of course already done and were just taken off the web).  I import all the objects to Poser and design my room in there, as it is easier to do it that way, especially with the animation tools it provides.

Again, dont worry about the Simpsons game, it is still being developed. This is just a mini side project. I just want to release a game badly. I have only been here like what?... Since the first release of this engine more than 3 years ago I think...

Actually he's more like 300 feet... ;D

I couldn't animate him, so I made a room inside a building where you have to escape.  But you do hear his roar every few seconds in the background.

One other detail I forgot to mention, this game will have voice!

Thanks for your replies.

I might not be able to render Godzilla into the game becouse I am just not that good at 3d yet, but I will try to maybe take a clip from Godzilla 1985 where he is either fighting Super X or taking down a building or something. Just for the fans.

I would use ripped sprites, but I hate to have to do that extra work, and not only that, I dont think the Images would work well with my 3d game.

Any suggestions?

You could maybee design only a part of the body, hairy... or maybee only the head, and let it walk past the window, so you do get a feeling of the monster

Hey I just wanted to inform everyone that I am still making this game. I just decided that I may add more than one room. Maybe like 4. And It will be voice activated, with possibly more characters.

So it wont be a mini game. But doing 3D art isn't easy, so it may take a while before its released.
