Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

This is a branch off from this thread

I had another idea for a video. The music would be Clubbed To Death by Rob D. from The Matrix OST and the video could be a compilation of scenes recorded in game dealing with a guy losing his wife to a clubber and seeking revenge. It would be quite easy to do it if some players collaborate on it and kill each others wives, all we need is a script and then some editing of the recorded material. Anyone interested in doing this together?

Gyuri, here's my scene direction. No dialogue, just the overall story arc.

I used this video for the timing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFS4zYWxzNA

I tried to pick out different sounds to break up the scenes.
Please listen for the transitions in the song at the timings I listed.

Discovery
0:00-0:25
Fade in. Player walks in. House is not deadly at all.
Can't find wife. Looks around.
Finds kids around dead wife (mouse over body) camera zooms into "Name clubbed"
Cut to security tapes, Click into tape and ffwd it to the clubbing. Fade to black.

Construction
0:26-0:44
Montage of player creating a deadly house with the money he has left over.
0:45-1:02
Self testing with chihuhuas and indicator lights.
1:02-1:21
More building and final self test. Fade to black.

Collection
1:21-1:40
Robbers come to die in the house leaving tools and bounties
1:40-1:43 (during siren part)
Shows vault collecting more and more tools
1:43-1:50
Robbers come to die in the house leaving tools and bounties
1:40-1:59 (during siren part)
Shows vault collecting more and more tools then fade to black

Theft
2:00-2:18
Player enters, mouse moves over the backpack.
Collects tools, finds house on house list
2:18-2:36
Goes through house finding dog path to family but searches for vault. Needs one more tool
2:36-2:56
Comes back with more tools, gets to vault area and trashes the place before opening vault.

Murder
2:56-3:22
Buys a crapload of guns
Revisits house kills dogs then turns the corner in front of wife at 3:22.
3:22-3:28
Pause and slow zoom in. With gun going off at the high point. Black screen.
3:28-3:40
Fade back in and show player taking money then leaving the house

Ending
3:40-3:54
Player returns home and walks slowly. Then walks runs around fast, then discovers his kids shot to death.
3:54-3:59
Steps up next to kids, pause. Suicide on 3:59
4:00-whenever
Freeze on suicide sceen while credits roll.

Read it while listening to the song. Have the song playing and imagine the scenes playing out.

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

I'd love to help too but this requires some hours of online time coordinated with some others that I just don't have right now.

Who has ideas for the house designs?

I just remembered that we could probably use the free community server to do this. Hopefully, you can create multiple accounts on MMaster's server.

Here are the tasks and what order they need to be done in.

1) House maps need to be designed. Safe home. Trap home. Clubbers home.
2) Build Safe home and Clubbers home
3) Clubber comes to kill wife
4) New logout login with Main Char. Enter safe home. Find wife and watch tape.
5) Continue to build and test with lights until trap home is set up. This should complete Recording 1.
6) 2k Robbers (other accounts) come to die in various places in the home.
7) Logout login with Main Char. Watch each tape, and in between each tape, check the vault to show the tools. This should complete Recording 2
8) Logout login with Main Char. Start the tool gathering and robbery scene. Then the wife kill scene. This should complete Recording 3
9) Clubber or other robber now kills the kids
10) Logout login with Main Char. Enter home and discover kids. commit suicide. This should complete recording 4

11) the recorded game files should then be bundled together.
12) playback the recorded files and transfer them to digital video
13) editing and sound

I don't have time this coming weekend. However, I may later. Can you give us the link to create accounts here, in case other people want to participate?

Sure. Here it is:
http://tcd.bitbix.com/ticketServer/register.php

I have modified it so everything in house is free to make it easier for you to do any setup you need. You get $5k at the beginning and can build whole house for free. Tools are still priced the same as on main server. This can still make some interesting gameplay as people can build anything they want. Having $5k in starting tools is also quite good to try to break expensive houses that will come up after building them is free.

MMaster, I tried signing up for two accounts using the same email. The second downloadcode doesn't work. Do I need to have a different email for it to work?

I never tried it. I just saw some people register the same email multiple times so I assumed it works. If you are sure that you entered it correctly, try different email (it does not email anything to you yet).

I used a nonexistent email. It got me another account, but I hope the email isn't used for anything. smile

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

Got the safe home up. Need a castle draft for a Clubber home and Main Char home now. Gonna try to work in each general type of trap. Fire floors, combo locks, clock, magic dance, leap of faith. etc. I don't think it has to fill the whole place, it just has to be enough to explore.

Edit: For those of you on the free server, please to not rob Ronald Howard Wilson.

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

Non tested home, but here's the first draft of the Main Char's home.
http://castledraft.com/editor/PA2kUs

It's got a scout killer in the north west.
Fire floors beneath it.
Dog doors and paradox circuit with bluff cat.
Clock next
Then a magic dance.
Then a combo lock at the bottom (this might be too complicated with the cats).
And a final leap of faith with 3 directions.

I'm wondering if it's too big to build in the amount of time available.
We'll see.
Let me know what you think.

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

And I finished and built the clubbers home. Less robust than the main char's home.

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

Just finished doing "testing recorded games" and finalized the Main Char Home to the point where it's been tested piece meal (no full run through
http://castledraft.com/editor/y1XzOV

Will do the kill scene soon along with the buildup. (hope I don't die during the recording)

Please don't rob Tyler John Cheney either. (he's the clubber home).

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

Ok. Build up scene is done. Unfortunately Tool Collection might take awhile since there are chills on the main server. MMaster can you drop the chills for today and tomorrow?

If anyone else is on the free server, I need Ronald Howard Wilson to collect these tools below. Please try attempting a robbery and dying in a realistic fashion (bonus points for funny deaths):

These are the tools needed for the revenge runs.
Tools needed on First Attempt
10 Bricks, 2 doorstops, 10 wirecutters, 30 water
15 saws, 10 drugged meat, 2 explosives, 1 ladder

Tools needed on Second Attempt
10 Bricks, 2 Doorstops, 10 Wirecutters, 50 water
10 saws, 10 drugged meat, 10 explosives, 2 ladders

Tools needed to kill wife on Third Visit
10 Guns, 15 clubs

Re: Clubbed to Death, a story of revenge

done, i've simulate a robbery, nothing funny about it, but maybe there's something useful.

i went up, put the dog asleep, drugged the committing one and sawed a corner to avoid it.
Than i took the wrong cat door, survived thanks to cutter + water, than died cutting the paradox after seeing the cat behind the corner.

as soon as the chills wears off i'm gonna make a couple of santa's run just to boost the tool collection big_smile

Sounds great.

If you have the video files ready, you can post the dropbox links or something similar here. I'm not an expert in video editing, but I think I can do this, if nobody else does.

I didn't convert them to videos. They are just recorded games.

You'll have to play them back to record them.
There's actually a decent amount and I tried to separate them.
We can't do another shot since the Main Char is dead from the suicide. However, you should have enough footage.

I numbered it from 0-8 for the order.
There's two folders that had multiple recordings.
I recommend just turning everything into video, then cutting and pasting after with effects on how fast or slow to fit the timing correctly.

I'll send you a message so I can deliver the zip through email, Gyuri.
