Hello everyone, my name is Damien Desmond and I am one of the 3d artist here at LCQ Studios. Today I would like to present to you the name we have chosen for the motocross game we are currently developing. After many months of us talking back and forth, we have decided from now on we will be calling the game the following:
Motocross | Last Chance Qualifier
The reason why we wanted this name was pretty simple; It fits! Our game will feature a non-linear single player mode where we want each time you play to more unique with story changes :)… Below is the basic layout for our single player and how we want things to run…
Single Player Concept
There are three different paths you can take.These are dependent on how well you do as a 50cc rider, and how far you take yourself. It is all decision based and will affect how your future plays out.
Should you do well as a 50cc rider (winning a title at Loretta’s) you will have factory teams offering to groom you for the future. This will be the “Prodigy” route. You will be expected to win multiple amateur titles, which will not be easy. The expectations are high, however, the rewards are very worthwhile. Pretty much everything is paid for by your sponsors.
Say you don’t have such a great 50cc career, you’re a slow learner, as some kids are, but you start to show some real potential in the 85/supermini class, maybe placing well at Lorettas, but not winning a title. This will be the “sleeper” route. Factory support will be non-existent, however a company or other source will help build you bikes that will be on par to compete with the factory boys. This will not be free, but will be discounted. Individual sponsors will come along that will help you with gear/travel, etc. You will have your 125/250 amateur career to impress the factories; let’s hope you do.
You have failed to impress the factories, or any big sponsors in general. All is not lost, though! Your 85cc career was a bust, qualifying but not placing well at Loretta’a, or not qualifying for Loretta’s at all. You will have a chip on your shoulder, though. You know you deserved to be there but things didn’t go your way (crashed out, taken out, etc). Your only support is you and/or your family, and a couple local sponsors. Finances will be tough, and hitting the amateur races will be expensive, so you will have to do everything in your power to impress somebody, anybody willing to help.
This route will be completely different than the other two; The rider will be given a trait that will allow him/her to push harder and longer than most riders, a will to prove everybody wrong.
We will have Neal Wells ( the person behind single player ) to go more in depth with everything when we get further along…
The single player career is set to release after alpha.
I hope everyone is pretty happy with the name and who knows we may even have the community get involved 😉
Edit: As of today, 1-10-2017, our game will be known as Motocross | Last Chance Qualifier. We have made this change due the similarity of names with a different product. -hodge47
