Welcome to the world of Nerf Legends! I’m Mihai Preda, the studio head right here at Enjoyable Labs and we’re excited to be making a online game primarily based on one in all our favourite childhood (and grownup, if we’re being sincere) toys.
Nerf Legends is an FPS the place you wield Nerf blasters in a science-fiction future. You’re a hopeful contestant who has entered the Nerf Trials, a gauntlet-style competitors the place the blasters are enhanced. The blasters are leveled-up and really feel enjoyable to make use of, and your objective is to make it by means of the winding programs to defeat robots, puzzles, and ultimately the Nerf Masters. The story focuses on the thought of proving your means with the blasters and making it to the top of the competitors to face off in opposition to the mysterious Grand Grasp. Doing so will win you the last word prize of being topped a Nerf Legend.
We took inspiration from the blasters to construct in some distinctive gameplay parts. For instance, as any one who has performed with a Nerf blaster earlier than is aware of that this ultimately results in your ground being affected by foam darts. We preferred this as a recreation idea and true to life, once you blast darts within the recreation, they’ll scatter in regards to the floor, and you need to decide them up shortly to replenish your ammo. This concept of blasting and selecting up darts makes for some fascinating gameplay methods. For instance, as opponents blast at you, they’re principally supplying you with ammo which you’ll decide up and fireplace again and vice versa.
We additionally seemed past taking part in with actual Nerf blasters to different video video games for inspiration. We now have fairly a couple of individuals within the studio that play a variety of shooters and different video games. No single recreation was a direct inspiration for our work in Nerf Legends, however the FPS style affords quite a lot of glorious video games to replicate on.
We even have loads of distinctive gameplay mechanics, too, that you just don’t see usually in different FPS video games. Early within the prototyping section, somebody had the thought so as to add trampoline-like bounce pads and it was one thing everybody loved immediately. We toyed round with this mechanic fairly a bit. Typically they’re used simply to leap as much as greater platforms or one other a part of a degree, and different instances they’re utilized in puzzles. For instance, think about making an attempt to hit opponents or different targets whereas hopping by means of the air or utilizing a bounce pad to leap into the center of the motion. This gameplay ultimately led to the thought of turning a trampoline on its facet and we created what we name accelerators. Accelerators propel you want a cannonball into the extent and so it turned a complete new approach to consider traversal. These mechanics, in flip, impressed a few of our degree designs because of this.
In some ways the blasters are the celebrities of the sport, however there’s no template for what the universe of Nerf ought to appear and feel like and that gave us quite a lot of freedom to enter some fascinating instructions. In Nerf Legends you scale fortress partitions, run by means of bays stuffed with futuristic Viking ships, catapult between cliffs in a jungle mountain, zip by means of a big spaceport, and way more. There’s simply a lot selection within the ranges, and none of it’s taken too significantly. For us, it was all in regards to the pleasure issue and making ranges that had been enjoyable to make use of blasters in. We hope gamers are stunned and delighted by that.
Nerf Legends has a full single-player marketing campaign, however there are additionally loads of on-line multiplayer recreation modes. Solo Nerf Out and Crew Nerf Out is our deathmatch and staff deathmatch, however with out the loss of life. Gamers within the recreation are tagged out as soon as defeated, therefore the naming. Nerf Siege is our king of the hill kind recreation mode after which there’s the Golden Dart mode. Golden Dart is like seize the flag, but it surely has an fascinating twist. It’s a team-play mode the place gamers rating by tagging out different gamers, however the staff scores in the event that they seize the golden dart and use it to blast and hit a goal that strikes across the map. The participant carrying the golden dart loses the dart whether it is fired or they get tagged out, so the teammates should attempt to defend them.
The Nerf model and the Nerf blasters actually are the right toy to adapt to a online game. We now have tried our greatest to remain truthful to Nerf’s core values and amplify every part enjoyable about taking part in with the blasters in actual life, all whereas breaking boundaries to create a heightened Nerf expertise that might be inconceivable have in real-life. We’re trying ahead to leaping on-line and taking part in Nerf Legends with you!
NERF Legends thrusts you right into a futuristic, sci-fi world the place you’ll come face-to-face with legions of robotic enemies and supreme boss masters. Armed with a wide selection of NERF blasters primarily based on their iconic, real-world counterparts, you’ll thwart formidable enemies whereas being challenged to drag off probably the most spectacular high-flying trick pictures throughout a sequence of distinctive and immersive environments. Are your NERF expertise as much as the problem to turn into the last word NERF Legend?
