Fursan al-Aqsa Classic: Definitive Edition Update

Watch the trailer for Fursan al-Aqsa Classic Update: Definitive Edition. This update fixes many of the original game's shortcomings and flaws by adding some more modern gameplay features like escape time for security cameras, checkpoints, mission objectives indicators, radar and minimap to make the game more enjoayable for a modern audience, and not only hardcore old school players. In addition players now can choose among different playable characters.


The most BASED game of all times now is adapted for a modern audience of gamers with new features like on-screen indicators, detection delay for security cameras, increased player HP, checkpoints, and more.



After the release of my game on Steam, I was able to build a very nice and friendly relationship with Fursan al-Aqsa players, and by talking with them, listening to their feedbacks and suggestions, I realized that not all gamers enjoy hardcore shooters like me, rather, the majority of gamers of today are already habituated with more modern gameplay features which we, old gamers from the 90's, never experienced on our time as gamers (I am still a gamer today but I don't have too much free time to play games). And indeed, some of these "modern" features today are standard on the majority of games.



But before making these changes on my game Fursan al-Aqsa, I decided to play some recent games and shooters, like Ion Fury and others, and I realized that indeed, making things easier for the player is much better than trying to punish him. One example, I myself was able to enjoy Ion Fury just because the game allows the player to save the game at any time and continue from this last save. This is perfect for me because I hardly have much free time to play, and whenever I find a break to play games, I do not want to stay in example, playing 2 hours the same mission / level, because it is very hard to beat. I think it is much better have 1 hour of fun playing a game than having 5 hours of frustration playing this same game.



With that in mind I decided to make some changes (which you can see on the trailer above) on the actual version of my game which is on Steam (this is besides Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, which will be a new game given as a free update for those who own Fursan al-Aqsa on Steam), also because many players bought the game, played Mission 2, didn't get past Mission 2 (they got frustrated with the security cameras), then they give up the game and refund it, not enjoying the game at all.

I decided to call this last update as Fursan al-Aqsa Classic: Definitive Edition because I will not touch on this version anymore, now my focus will be on Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, however, Fursan al-Aqsa Classic will be available to play even after the release of Fursan al-Aqsa Remake (I will update the game launcher to allow players to choose which version to launch).

I hope that now with this last update this game will be enjoyable by a more modern audience, specially this new generation of gamers more habituated to games like Call of Duty and other modern franchises.

Assalamu Alaykum (may the peace be with you).

IMPORTANT: MINI MAP DOES NOT WORK IF YOU ENABLE MULTI SAMPLE ANTI ALIASING ON THE GAME'S OPTIONS MENU. This is a bug on UDK Engine itself, but you can set anti aliasing settings directly on Nvidia Control Panel instead of using this option in-game.

Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Devlog: Combat Overview and Artificial Intelligence

Check out this new trailer for Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, showcasing the updated enemies AI and the first combat overview.


Buy Fursan al-Aqsa Classic now on Steam and receive the Remake as a free update:



Now my friends, I need to be sincere with you. Please, buy my game on Steam to support me, otherwise I will need to give a break on this project, because, unfortunately, bills don't stop to come all months.



If the sales remain low, I will have to give priority to my job. I would love to dedicate more time to this project, to be able to finish as fast as it is possible, however, in reality it is not that easy. I tried to make a living from game development, but it is VERY hard. Fursan al-Aqsa has 7250 wishlists on Steam, and, if only the half of these whishlists converted to sales, I would be able to dedicate my full time on Fursan al-Aqsa Remake. Anyway, I will try my best to finish Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Demo.



The biggest problem with my game is indeed the political message, which makes many, too many gaming websites simply refuse to cover my game. I sent thousands of messages and emails for sites like IGN, Gamespot, Kotaku, Game Informer, PC Gamer and many others, but they never answered me or talked about my game. For an indie game, it is extremely hard to get noticed without media coverage. And many of these websites fear displeasing Israel and Zionist Groups, like IGN:


So, without proper media coverage, any game will stay on the limbo, getting known by only some few people. Even then, I am happy that the purpose of Fursan al-Aqsa was achieved, praise be to Allah, that this game went against the stream, this game exposed the hypocrisy within media, the double standards for the so called "freedom of speech", which exists on both movies and games (and in general media work). I know Fursan al-Aqsa already entered on the video games history, even though it did not receive the deserved recognition.



May Allah bless you!

Sincerely,
Nidal Nijm.

Fursan al-Aqsa Remake: Brutal Combat Gameplay

Take a deep dive into the frenetic, gory and bloody Combat Mechanics of Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, the most BASED and REDPILLED game of ALL times, created by Nidal Nijm, the most BASED game developer on Steam:


Buy Fursan al-Aqsa Classic now on Steam and receive the Remake as a free update:

Mobile Version Combat Gameplay:

INSANE Explosions Gameplay:



This trailer shows the core gameplay of Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, the updated combat mechanics and also the updated enemies AI and the updated Zionist Soldier Model (the 1st variation).

You can notice a HUGE difference and improvement on the enemies behaviour, thanks to this AMAZING kit I am using for Unreal Engine 4:


This is one of the most advanced Artificial Intelligence Frameworks for Unreal Engine, as it is based on behaviours. So you setup different behaviours and reactions for the enemies, alongside situations to trigger these behaviours, like what the enemy should do if he sees you, if he hears the bullets, or if he hears other enemy dying close to him, what to do if the players gets out of his sight, patrol, investigate, and many other cool things. But as always, I changed a lot this AI Framework, added many new functions and extra features (I improved the AI hearing and peripheral vision), and I also integrated with this another Locomotion System:


I used from this system mainly the Ragdoll Physics and some of the movements (since I added some new animations) to make the enemies animation a bit different from the player's animations (just like in Fursan al-Aqsa Classic). This way makes the game's animations more appealing and varied.



Other new feature I implemented is the new Super Headshot, which blows up the enemies' heads with a Cinematic Camera. To perform the Super Headshot you simply need to perform a headshot while in bullet time. Super Headshots now give player 30HP of health, while Normal Headshots give player 15HP of health. However, for keeping the gameplay balanced, there is a cool down time on both the Bullet Time and the Super Headshot.

I already remade the Knife Kills (Stealth Kills) in Unreal Engine 4, and now it works perfectly, it is easier to perform, and it is not buggy as on the classic version. You just approach the enemy from behind and press V. But you need to approach him without too much delay, because if you stay too much behind him, he will feel your presence, turn around and shoot at you! I will add the front kill animation as well. The knife kills give player 50HP of health!



Added the Wall Running, which makes the player invincible for some seconds, and also the automatic health regeneration (1HP by second), there is no need for health packs anymore. So removing the healthpack means the best way to gain health is killing the enemies, so this will turn the player in a killer machine haha!!! So you must kill to survive!!!

The next step now will be finish the demo mission, since now the basic game framework is done. I hope now in the end of December to release Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Demo on Steam and Fursan al-Aqsa Mobile Demo on Playstore, to allow you have a taste of what awaits on the full game.



Last but not least, the Indie of the Year 2022 competition has just began on IndieDB:


And since Fursan al-Aqsa Classic Definitive Edition (the last update) fixed the biggest problems of my game (security cameras logic, mission objective indicators, mini map, checkpoints and so on), I think now Fursan al-Aqsa is very enjoyable on its actual shape, so you can enjoy it while waiting for Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, and I kindly ask you, PLEASE VOTE ON FURSAN AL AQSA MAYBE IT CAN BECOME AMONG THE BEST INDIE GAMES OF 2022, which in turn will give the visibility Fursan al-Aqsa needs to be a trully successful indie game.

Thanks and until next time!

Wow, never heard of this game before, but the way it looks, this project is worth my time to play for sure
Thanks my friend. Yeah, but I am already working on a new version of my game, Fursan al-Aqsa Remake, with improved graphics, physics and gameplay, however, even then, the Classic version which is on Steam is a very fun to play!

Fursan al-Aqsa Game made in the list of Top 100 Indie Games of 2022 at IndieDB. So vote for making it among the Top 10 Indie Games of 2022!

Steam Winter Sales and Top 10 Indie Games of 2022

Hello dear friends!



Fursan al-Aqsa Game made in the list of Top 100 Indie Games of 2022 at IndieDB:

Now it is competing on the top 10 of 2022!

Just scroll down to Third Person Shooter Category and click on the red button to vote!!!



Maybe if my game makes among the top 10 of 2022, this can help it to get some visibility to increase the sales, in sha Allah. As a muslim I do believe that the ultimate success and blessings is in the hands of Allah (God), but sometimes, specially now in our era of social media, we all know that just one post about a game may get viral and may make that game become a hit and success, like this game here:


After this tweet post here, a gameplay video uploaded by a Netflix employee, which reached almost 6 millions of views:

The game got coverage from almost all gaming websites and many youtubers and streamers on twitch, and I am sure this helped the game to sell a lot. So maybe something like this can happen to my game, only God knows... While this does not happen, I will keep trying, in sha Allah (God's willing).

And on next tuesday begins Steam Winter Sales and I will give a HUGE discount for Fursan al-Aqsa:




As you already know, buy Fursan al-Aqsa Classic now on Steam and receive the Remake as a FREE Update over the base game. I kindly ask for those 7.367 users who have my game on their wishlist to please, buy my game to support me! Every copy sold trully helps me!

Also, as I commented before, I applied for getting a remote job of character animator in the games industry because my game's sales on Steam are going slow and they are not enough for me making my living. I have great hopes that the Remake will be more successful, in sha Allah (God's willing), but I need a fixed salary, incoming until I finish the Remake, which I think I need from 8 to 10 months. So with a remote job I will be able to work on my game in my spare time, but I will work with peace of mind and be more productive. Working distressed fearing for the future of your family is very bad, indeed...

Even though I understand about all areas of game development, but I think that characters animation is my strength, and as so I built a portfolio and would like to showcase here some work of mine which many of you have never seen.

In example, this is a very old cutscene animation (the first cutscene) I made for my game, Fursan al-Aqsa, but in the end I decided to don't add on the game now, maybe in a future DLC or even another game. To be honest, I made this animation more as a study for myself, and I think this animation looks cool, and it serves to showcase my skills with character animations:


Also here is the compilation of ALL cutscenes I made for my game, the actual version on Steam (almost 11 minutes of cutscenes):


And here is something I made just for fun (and I think it looks hilarious), on the time I was porting UDK Engine (the engine I used to develop my game) to PS3 and Xbox360. You can see this has the same game menu and interface logic of Fursan al-Aqsa, because I used this build of the engine (my custom build) to develop Fursan al-Aqsa:


And for those who have never seen my game running on PS3, here is, the first 5 missions running on my PS3 with HEN (Homebrew Enabler) installed:


So that's all for now my friends.

May Allah bless you!

Cheers,
Nidal Nijm.

Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Demo Release Trailer




This is the official release trailer for Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Demo, the most BASED and REDPILLED game of all times developed by the most BASED game developer on Steam, me, Nidal Nijm.

Fursan al-Aqsa Remake is a brand new version of the iconic game Fursan al-Aqsa: The Knights of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the game which made Zionists cry out for mommy!

This demo can be downloaded from Steam, IndieDB and Itch.io:




As for those who own Fursan al-Aqsa on Steam, I updated the game launcher with a new button to launch Fursan al-Aqsa Remake Demo.



If you do not own my game yet, do not miss the last days of Steam Winter Sale to buy Fursan al-Aqsa by 50% OFF and get this Remake for FREE, once it is finished!

Some observations about this Demo:

1- I forgot to add the command to return to main menu whenever the player does not get any rank on this mission.

2- I forgot to teach players how to do knife kills (I assumed you know because of Fursan al-Aqsa classic), just get on the enemy's back and press V once you see the icon "Finish Him". For the full game I will add more executions, not only with knife, but also with pistols and rifles, in the best John Wick style!

3- I made Fursan al-Aqsa Remake a bit easier than the Classic version because many people did not enjoy the overly hard challenge of Fursan al-Aqsa Classic. Think on this demo map as something like a Tournament Map, E-Sports (hunting zionists) to train your skills and train how to perfect the new gameplay features like Wall Running, Headshots, Super Headshots, the updated Bullet Time, Knife Kills and also exploding Grenades on Air!

So I kindly ask you to play this Demo and give me a sincere feedback.

Until next time!
