Legends is a fast-paced first-person-perspective online multiplayer
game. The game is designed to take advantage of the beautiful
environments available from the Torque engine it is based on while still
offering the breakneck pacing and variety of styles available from such
classics as Quake and Tribes.
Gameplay is not the strafe-strafe-jump-strafe-shoot-strafe-run-like-hell
style a lot of games espouse; the addition of a jetpack adds a third
dimension of mobility that makes skill, forethought, and restraint
necessities to winning.
Team sizes are going to be ideal between 10 and 15 on each side, and the
network code will allow anyone with any bandwidth to play relatively
smoothly. Game type offerings will range from the classic Capture the
Flag to our own new type, affectionately called "Knockout".
Plenty of maps will be provided by us, but the beauty of this game is
its customization possibilities. Mission creation has never been easier,
with a stable, full-featured editor integrated into the game engine
itself. Skins, models, and effects can all be modified by the end-user
with commonly available tools.
