Default Project Ethereal: Student Project Developing Online Medieval Combat Game

...poked, stabbed, struck, pummeled, and beaten by swords and spears...

Project Ethereal proposes to create a visceral and realistic medieval combat – that is fun to play!

In development at Carnegie Mellon University, students of the Entertainment Technology Center participated in live medieval-style sword & shield and spear combat to explore the experience and feeling of getting poked, stabbed, struck, pummeled, and beaten by swords and spears and attempt to capture that experience for the online player.

Ethereal focuses on authenticity of combat techniques and high-energy combat-mechanics – striking a balance between realism and fun. Ethereal augments this experience by maximizing accessibility through teamplay on a web browser using the increasingly popular Unity game engine.

Looks to be still in production, but overall pretty nice!
