Wanted to show everyone some of the work we did our last semester as our senior project at Pepperdine University. Although buggy and unfinished, i think it is quite an achievement for 3 programmers, no artists, and a sound guy all in a span of about 4 months.
Credits before Infos:
Roger Hughston2 - Programming and the artist (lol programmer art), Audio
AJ West - Programming
James Anglin - Programming
Kevin Lambert - Audio (awesome voice over work; intro movie video)
Enjoy: and feel free to give some feedback; perhaps ill get the will to finish and unbug the game haha .
[i]The year is 2305. We are not alone, but we’ve known that for some time. Ever since their arrival nearly a century ago, our benefactors, as some have come to call them, have taken us under their ever-watchful care. It seemed at first that they were our saviors. The earth’s once great nations had been pushed to the brink of destruction by seemingly endless war, and what the wars hadn’t destroyed, disease and famine had begun to. Our benefactors changed all that, for a time. Their arrival put into sharp focus the futility of our petty wars, prompting unprecedented cooperation among the world’s governments. In exchange for colonial rights to the Antarctic and subsequent “Favored Nation” status, our benefactors provided us medicine, technology, and new agricultural techniques. Now, we live in a near Utopian world, following blindly those who call us friends.;
The Guardians is a spacecraft-based shooter following the story of John Fletcher, a fighter pilot serving in the U.S. Air Force Space Command. On a routine mission he is shot down and captured. During his capture he witnesses atrocities beyond comprehension. However, more disturbing than the atrocities themselves are those who are preforming them, and on whom they are being preformed. Through a minor miracle John escapes with information that will change the course of human history forever - if he lives long enough to spread the word.
Cant seem to get IMGs to work - but images are available on my website.

Latest (although old) Installer available here - cslab.pepperdine.edu/~warfor … Ver434.exe
First time you run the game, turn the resulution up in the options menu and restart it. It will look a lot better lol.
If there is a bug/crash etc and you want to just advance around in the levels feel free to edit the python code. To Change which level your save slot has open the game folder and find the folder saveInfo and open a slot file in any text editor and change S’X’ - for X to be any level between 1-5.
Levels that have the most polish are 1,2(cool cutscene following level 2 even though level is really rough), and level 4 (asteroids with bump maps).
