What game is this?

>> No.31546958


It was a running joke on /tg/ that there was a game called "Chapter Master" that was basically a 40k version of Dwarf Fortress. It was coupled with fake greentexts describing the events of the game.

Some anons decided to make it into an actual thing, it looks like.

>> No.31546970

Ok someone tell me what game this is.

I love 40k games (The ones that are good) and so I would gladly play with.

This game looks to be from the mid to late 90's. But it also has some more modern aesthetics.

>> No.31546986


Chapter Master, a fake game with /tg/ made up about you taking control of a Space Marine chapter in a simulated universe, adventuring, fighting aliens and heresy and whatnot.

It was really only a joke, a mind game and an expression of creativity, but some people had the ambition to try and make an actual game out of the idea.

this is the first "screenshots" that i've seen of someone actually trying.

That is, unless of course, this is just some gigantic asshole tormenting up with mock-up stuff which will never amount to anything, leaving the much desired game just out of our grasp.

>> No.31546997

It's literally a game based entirely on an in-joke in /tg/ being put together by a bunch of anons.

So... why didn't they just make a kickstarter? People would throw money at it, I'm sure. If there are law issues just kickstart a code and release UI unoficially.

>> No.31548670

Because cease and desist orders.
Better bet would be to make a setting less interface before releasing the UI unofficially or, as they're doing it now, keeping it free.

>> No.31548826


Don't get ahead of yourselves guys, we've been burned FAR too often on these things to lower the shields now.

That said, these images are either something working towards the real deal, OR a VERY elaborate troll.

My money's still on the latter, since that has happened more than once, but I shall relight a single candle of hope nevertheless.



>> No.31549424

Lol it looks like some Vassal sprites are being used.

>> No.31549457

If it saves the game maker having to track down a drawfag to do it, then I support it in the name if saving time and minimizing the people needed to get it off the ground.

>> No.31549524

>implying this isn't just an elaborate ruse.

Seriously anon I've seen at least 4 threads of people saying that they're making this a thing.

>> No.31549557

Oh, absolutely its probably a ruse, or perhaps just something that will be abandoned when the going gets tough.

But, if it does happen to be real, then I consider scavenging sprites from elsewhere a good idea, is all.

Fair enough.

What kind of heresy does this game allow?

More like a 40k version of King of Dragon Pass.

Yes, we're currently in the third millennium. Upp to 1000 AD was the first and up to 2000 AD was the second. Just like the 2000s are the 21st century.

>> No.31551108

Since you apparently understand that, is that just today's date or is it possibly a predicted release date?

>> No.31554362

Imperial Dating system works like this:
The 0 refers to the accuracy of the date as relevant to Terran time. So 0 is on Earth, 1 is in the Sol system, etc.
Second bracket is the year fraction; the Administratum divides a year into 1000 chunks. It works out to a little over 8 hours per one increment. A month is roughly 87.5, so we get to a little over 3.5 months. So mid March sometime.

>> No.31554451

Wouldn't that be April?

87.5 = end of january
175 = end of february
262 = end of march
300ish = some point this month?

Unfortunately no.

>> No.31556819


It's similar to Dwarf Fortress in the sense that anons who know nothing about how games are made kept making ludicrous pipe-dream suggestions until the prospective game turned into an amazingly complex Imperium Simulator which would essentially model everything that exists in 40k lore. Of course, while neither game will ever be finished, the distinction is that Chapter Master will never even reach Alpha.

If this really becomes a thing, then I really don't mind if it keeps that level of detail, or lack thereof.

The sad thing is that Chapter Master died even as it was born, I wonder if anyone else plays it except i. The annoying thing about that is i encounter so muchstuff that i have never seen or encountered before, and i cannot get help.
