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 based mostly on one in every of 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 purpose is to make it by means of the winding programs to defeat robots, puzzles, and ultimately the Nerf Masters. The story focuses on the concept of proving your capability with the blasters and making it to the tip of the competitors to face off in opposition to the mysterious Grand Grasp. Doing so will win you the final 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 that has performed with a Nerf blaster earlier than is aware of that this ultimately results in your flooring being affected by foam darts. We favored this as a recreation idea and true to life, while you blast darts within the recreation, they’ll scatter in regards to the floor, and you will need to choose them up rapidly to replenish your ammo. This concept of blasting and choosing up darts makes for some attention-grabbing gameplay methods. For instance, as opponents blast at you, they’re principally providing you with ammo which you’ll be able to choose up and hearth again and vice versa.
We additionally regarded past taking part in with actual Nerf blasters to different video video games for inspiration. We’ve got fairly just a few folks 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 presents numerous glorious video games to mirror on.
We even have loads of distinctive gameplay mechanics, too, that you simply don’t see typically in different FPS video games. Early within the prototyping part, somebody had the concept 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. Generally they’re used simply to leap as much as greater platforms or one other a part of a stage, and different instances they’re utilized in puzzles. For instance, think about attempting to hit opponents or different targets whereas hopping by means of the air or utilizing a soar pad to leap into the center of the motion. This gameplay ultimately led to the concept 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 grew to become a complete new manner to consider traversal. These mechanics, in flip, impressed a few of our stage designs in consequence.
In some ways the blasters are the celebs of the sport, however there’s no template for what the universe of Nerf ought to feel and look like and that gave us numerous freedom to enter some attention-grabbing instructions. In Nerf Legends you scale citadel partitions, run by means of bays stuffed with futuristic Viking ships, catapult between cliffs in a jungle mountain, zip by means of a huge spaceport, and rather more. There’s simply a lot selection within the ranges, and none of it’s taken too severely. For us, it was all in regards to the pleasure issue and making ranges that have been enjoyable to make use of blasters in. We hope gamers are shocked 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 Group Nerf Out is our deathmatch and crew 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 sort recreation mode after which there may be the Golden Dart mode. Golden Dart is like seize the flag, however it has an attention-grabbing twist. It’s a team-play mode the place gamers rating by tagging out different gamers, however the crew 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 shield them.
The Nerf model and the Nerf blasters actually are the right toy to adapt to a online game. We’ve got tried our greatest to remain truthful to Nerf’s core values and amplify the whole lot enjoyable about taking part in with the blasters in actual life, all whereas breaking boundaries to create a heightened Nerf expertise that might be unattainable have in real-life. We’re wanting 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 big selection of NERF blasters based mostly on their iconic, real-world counterparts, you’ll thwart formidable enemies whereas being challenged to drag off probably the most spectacular high-flying trick photographs throughout a sequence of distinctive and immersive environments.
