Engine Evolution 2021 video game Developed by Petr Šimůnek and published by Petr Šimůnek

Developed by Petr Šimůnek and published by Petr Šimůnek

This game was created during my studies at Charles University in Prague. I made most of the game alone. I hope you will enjoy it!

Engine Evolution is a multiplayer racing game that uses similar principles as World of Tanks - with each race, against 11 other players, you gain experience and credits, for which you can buy various upgrades for your bike, or unlock the next bike. You start with machines of 1906, can you get to the very top and ride on modern technology?

Physics is simplified enough to still give you passion from the ride but not too complex to take you hours to learn. It mainly focuses on giving players the best passion for racing fights possible. The core of the game are short dynamic races with a high density of action.

70 historic motorbikes from 7 nations

15 real and custom tracks

1000 of various vehicle setups

You can customize your motorbikes and rider as much as you want using a simple yet powerful customization system. You can paint several parts of your vehicles with any combination of colors to create a unique design.

The game is based on custom cloud-saving technology. As part of that, it contains many classic MMO features like cloud save, leaderboards, daily missions, achievements, and stats! Compare yourself to other racers!

STEIN.WORLD

About:

They are able to learn various professions like mining, herbalism or tailoring in order to craft epic pieces of equipment and consumables. They can trade with each other or unite in a group of up to five people to face the numerous threats of the dungeons wave dungeons together. Stein.world offers a wide range of different types of items, so players can customize their character to their liking. There is no strict class system within the game; the items themselves dictate the play-style.

That and much more awaits the players within stein.world, while theyre on their epic quest to recover their lost family heirloom: the eponymous family beer stein

In addition stein.world is theoretically capable of running on any device that is able to run a modern internet browser. The game does not require any downloads, plugins or add-ons. Play anywhere, at anytime, on anything.

Stein.world is an entirely free-2-play MMORPG in an old-school inspired 2D pixel look. The game relies on an active combat system, similar to Nintendo classics like Zelda and Secret of Mana, meaning the players need to dodge and execute attacks actively. Aside from the already implemented features the game is continually expanded with regular content updates. The next patch will introduce a housing system, that will allow players to maintain their own farm, similar to games like Harvest Moon. Alongside of the introduction of corresponding professions, players will have even more possibilities to prepare for their dangerous adventures. Those possibilities include cooking buff food or brewing their own potions from the crop yields of their own farm. In addition of the gameplay expansions the developers behind stein.world are currently working on optimizing the UI and controls for the mobile experience of the game as well as developing dedicated apps for Android and iOS

Stein.world is in its entirety a free2play game. There are no pay-walls for any of the already existing or upcoming gameplay features. The game offers a fair pay2skip model for some of the gameplay elements. There is no option to obtain better equipment for real-life currency. The aim of the studio is to avoid splitting the player base and to avoid creating a pay2win environment.

The Open League


The Open League video game Developed by Squiggly Games and published by Squiggly Games

Developed by Squiggly Games and published by Squiggly Games

The Open League (TOL) is a text-based footballsoccer manager game with significant integration with the Discord platform. Key features include:

Nightly matches, 3-week season

Full 90-minute matches are simulated nightly with play-by-play text updates streamed in our Discord server.

Each universe features 30 teams organized in three leagues. Top three teams are promoted to a higher league. Bottom three get relegated. A season lasts three weeks.

Youth camp

During the off-season, teams attend Youth Camp with the hope to find the nexg legendary player. Camp lasts a weekend. During that time, managers use scouting reports to decide which players to bid on. Most team dynasties in TOL were built on succesful youth camp campaigns.

Friendly matches

Managers also have the ability to organize friendly matches against other managers. They often use the off-season to organize tournaments against other teams.

Persistent teams and players

At the end of the season, managers keep their teams. Players develop and decay season after season. Transfer timing is everything.

Simple team management

Weve simplified club management so you dont need to play 100s of hours to get familiar with our platform. Managers can choose between six formations, three effort levels and three different mindsets. Simple does not mean easy, beware

Negotiate transfers against humans

Transfers are negotiated against human managers over Discord before deals are formalized using the TOL application. Astute dealmakers thrive in TOL.

Browser-ready

Our web app allows you to access your club portal from any browser (including from your phone), in case you have to make some changes from a different computer

Bots

TOL uses a few friendly bots in Discord to help you manage your team. For example, you can DM your assistant Chris to ask him to send out a press release to all other clubs about your latest victorious match!

Multi-timezone support

The Open League supports two timezones (US PST and GMT) at the moment. This means matches are played at 7:00pm PST if you are in our US server or 7:00pm GMT if you are in our European server.

The Maze: Humanity


The Maze: Humanity video game Developed by InitiativeVR and published by InitiativeVR

Developed by InitiativeVR and published by InitiativeVR

The Maze is a VR Multiplayer game in which human players arrive in a new realm after being teleported from their homelands. The size and purpose of the maze is unknown, the only thing that is certain is that they have to survive in this extremely hard environment.

The Maze changes according to our memories, imagination, dreams, and transforming it into an even more chaotic realm as more people arrive. Environments change according to the memories of the living beings within it. This means that areas in The Maze change and shift randomly enabling a dynamic gaming experience.

Upon arrival, players can choose any combination of two classes to fit their own play style. An example is merging both the Summoner and Warrior classes so that the player can act as a frontline fighter while at the same time summoning creatures to deal damage. Gunslinger and Druid are other e the player can deal damage from afar, root enemies into place and heal other teammates.

The Maze has dozens of different species to fight against. A few examples being Orcs, Trolls, Demons, Goblins, Elves, Undead, and Lizards. When Humans first arrived, the other species viewed them as nothing more than food or potential slaves. Humans arent as strong as Orcs, they dont have the fast health regeneration of Trolls, nor do they have the high dexterity of Elves. Understaminating us will be their mortal mistake. They don't know what a mother and a father will go through to protect their loved ones, they don't know what a Human will endure to win their revenge, they don't know that there will be people that will sacrifice their lives for the freedom of others, they dont know how people can do almost the impossible through faith, they don't know the creativity that Humans have, how we can create something beautiful as art, music, sculptures from just our imagination... However we can also create atomic bombs and weapons of war. And they will know that there are Humans such as Napoleon, Sun Tzu, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar see war as an art itself.
