Blake’s 7: The Game (My fan game)
The Preacher711
After 30 years, a number of non-starters, failed attempts and just plain embarrassing outcomes, I’ve finally got some way to making the B7 game I’ve always wanted to!

Game demonstration on YouTube
Joe Dredd
That's excellent! I love that you've gone so far as to include the plants we see in the episode.
The Preacher711
Thank you sir!

Had to get the plants in there!

At the moment I’ve got 3 other levels in progress, each based on an episode:

Horizon (25% complete)

Star One (90% complete)

Blake (25% complete)

Also spent a lot of time creating playable sprites of Blake, Bounty Hunter Blake, Avon, Series D Avon, Vila, Jenna, Tarrant (series D) and Scorpio.

I’ve decided to do some regular ‘work in progress’ videos on YouTube so feel free to check the channel there.

I’m also going to at some point upload some of the near miss games I made before!
I've got to hand it to you, it's brilliant! Love the Saurian Major plants, and the building (Oldbury) and the ribbed flooring of the Liberator corridors and you can identify each character by what it is wearing. Any fan would love it! Good show.

The Preacher711
Many thanks! That really means a lot!!
Superb! Really well done. I too love the Saurian Major plants, the Liberator rooms and corridors and all the characters - especially Vila with his toolbox and glass of soma!

Please post links here when you upload more to YouTube?

A statement of fact cannot be insolent
The Preacher711
Thanks Travisina!!! I certainly will keep you posted as things progress (just need a few more days to finish the next level, test it, tweak it!)
Vanessa Doffenshmirtz
That looks like a lot of fun.
I used to be such a sweet sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me.
The Preacher711
In the meantime I’ve made a separate YouTube channel with videos of the B7 First Person Shooter I made back in 2017.

The game contained 4 missions based on episodes and I’ve uploaded the first 2.

More to come!!!

I ran through the first game, mission 1, and loved it. The marching Federation troopers actually made me laugh out loud! It reminded me of Wolfenstein, a game I played years ago. Actually the only game I've played. You've done a great job!

You’re spot on there- it was actually made using a very modified version of the Wolfenstein Engine!!!

I’ve uploaded Mission 3 (based on Rumours of Death) to the YouTube channel- enjoy!!

I will get back to the ‘new’ game again soon!
The Preacher711
I’ve uploaded the forth and final (completed at least) level from the B7 FPS game of old to the YouTube channel.

It’s based on the final duel in ‘Deathwatch’ between Vinni and Tarrant.

It’s a tragically short and simple level (and not the Big Bang finale I had in mind) as I’d run out of asset/resource space within the game engine, so couldn’t create any new sprites/weapons/textures (such as the gawdy but effective pistol made by Dayna).

I did toy with starting over with a sequel game, the first level of which would have been based on ‘Shadow’.

I got as far as making some new enemies and textures (including Moondiscs!) but my frustrations with the limitations of the engine means it got no further.....

Like the project that followed (an FPS played from the Liberators perspective) it now rests with the great cyberneticists in the sky!
The Preacher711
So to round off my trip down fan game memory lane:

2017 FPS Game:
Mission 3- Rumours of Death https://youtu.be/...
Mission4- Deathwatch https://youtu.be/...
The Lost Missions (from the canned sequel- based on Shadow and Star One)

And finally all that exists of the 2016 Blake’s 7:Liberator game

Thanks, Preacher711. I have had a lot of fun going through the various games. I'll have to make time to go through what remains.

WOW Preacher711, this is absolutely fabulous!
So much love for the series that you created your own game.
I wish I had that knowledge. (And yes, I once played Wolfenstein too)
Lara&Sue's Blake's 7 stories and *my PD as Kerr Avon Tribute*
*No, I am not. I am not expendable, I'm not stupid, and I'm not going.*
The Preacher711
I know I promised a new level to show off, but I’ve become side tracking on making new players and enemies for other levels!

Here’s a new vid https://youtu.be/... that shows:

Avon Series B player sprite vs Andromidans and Travis. These are lifted from the (nearly complete) Star One mission.

Vila (Series A) player sprite vs Mutoids. They are for an upcoming Project Avalon level.

Avon (Series D) player sprite vs ZVP Guards. Avon’s from a ‘Gold’ & ‘Blake’ mission I’ve made some progress on.

The background with crashed Scorpio is also lifted from the ‘Blake’ level.

Hope you enjoy and subscribe!!
The Preacher711
It’s been a long time coming, but Mission 2 of my B7 fan game is finally done!

You can view it here: https://youtu.be/...

It’s based on ‘Star One’, and features:

- Fly the Liberator to Star One
- Play as Blake on the planets surface (fighting Andromidans!)
- Infiltrate the base as Avon- fight Travis, rescue Blake, retrieve the bombs!!
- Hold off the Andromidan fleet!!

The Preacher711
A good friend asked that I change my plan for Mission 3 (was meant to be ‘Project Avalon’) and instead do one based upon ‘Countdown’ (his fav episode) with a playable Del Grant. Started work on Mr Grant this morning!!

Joe Dredd
Hmm, a request to add Del Grant. Is this friend of the female persuasion, by any chance?
The Preacher711
You might be right Mr Dredd!!!
