VU Trailer
02:23:45 Jul 15th 08 - VU Admin:

I'm thinking of making a VU trailer. Need some ideas for a manuscript. It needs to have something special so that it will spread fast. I'll then put it on youtube and other video sites.

02:30:18 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Ocastra:

The commercial opens to a woman web chatting with a guy. the screen is split with the faces on the left and right.
They are hot of course.
They are web chatting and making naughty VU innuendos.
"my halfling scout is searching your areas."
"My human defense will be  penetrated by that orcs large front"
"I like the size of your army" *Wink* "Is that a brigade?"

*in bold over their faces*
VU Play something different


02:37:14 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Uttkarsh Bhardwaj:

Lol very nice idea Mr. Ocastra....=P


02:41:29 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Ocastra:

We had another commercial idea in Fant chat.
Vu drinking game. Just some guys getting plastered to start off with. Then they show why, Every time an ET*beep*s they chug a beer.


03:23:07 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Pesci:

figure out a way to market vu to potheads....
whether u realize it or not vu is perfect for people who are sitting in there room smoking weed all night talking to there freinds on aim or msn(who are also high) about vu and coming up with plans and strategies... im prolly gonna get flamed by a few ppl for saying that but the whole reason i started playing vu is cause i was high all the time and some of my stoner friends introduced me to the game..... and thats exactly what we would do late at night if we were home


03:36:53 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Ocastra:

take the old WAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPP bear commercial and apply it to VU Just having a beer playing VU


04:10:15 Jul 15th 08 - Sir Dead Oralive:

Dam and i was offline while this chat was going on :(


04:33:24 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Insane II:

it was a good one, spook left some out..


05:20:57 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Spook:

sorry, i left for a bit. but the chat also involved another idea: at the end of an era we are going to throw a huge VU party in sweeden. We are all going to get together and find out what we all look like =P

Anyone who doesnt like this idea is ugly!


05:26:22 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Insane II:

B.Y.O.B


05:26:32 Jul 15th 08 - Prince Waldorfius Septim:

Or poor and unable to afford a plane ticket to "sweeden".


05:26:57 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Insane II:

Watch for they guy dressed as vader!!


05:27:55 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Spook:

We could have sattelite parties scattered around the world and all be connected with a big screen.


05:28:13 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Insane II:

locations is still flexible septim..!


05:28:32 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Insane II:

Trailer release party.


09:48:14 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Samual:

No think of money guys i would cost thousand of pound to make a commercial we should ask the VU how much they are willing to put towards this and how would come to a VU party yer only u geeks


10:42:56 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Naerey:

Heheh, not more than 100$ probably :D


10:58:15 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Your Multi:

its hard making a trailer for a 2d game without making it look good, but include the points of the amount of people that play and what singles it out from other games


11:09:30 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Harry The Crazy:

How about, go on the VU screen? Then add battles from the Total War games?

They'll be like ZOMG A FR33 GAME WE NUBS CAN PLAY AND LIEK, WATCH TEH BATT1ES!!11!!1!!ONE!!TWO!!

Then when they login, muahahahaha.

 

On a serious note, if you include the forum. Do not show cobra's pics and flames lmao. I could see a lawsuit if you did :P


13:35:00 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Spook:

Samual we deccided that instead of putting it on tv we would put it on youtube and stuff like that. Its free and you can still get decent publicity if you get people posting the links around the web.


16:02:02 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Sin:

Could be something easy done.
Something from fine edited screenshots maybe. exemple. making many screens from VU DAY 160-180 at one position, where is shown good tactics. Like merging armies and taking blocker, using magic, etc. From that 20 screens slideshow would look like short movie clip and adding there some flashing or smthing would look really nice.
I'll try to make fake example with flash or smth and then I'll show you what I'm talking about.


16:11:19 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Harry The Crazy:

Back to the women?

How about an English woman, a Swedish/Norwegia woman (thats aimed at verll btw... yes i do realize its norwegian lol) and an American woman.

They're in a bar. They see three hot guys (played by me, mielo and cobra). They take them back to their rooms and the woman goes upstairs to "slip into something more comfortable."

The guys see the computers. They login to VU, they set up their troops and stuff. They then go upstairs. Only to find that the woman are logged into VU aswell.

Even worse they're KD's are at war. They then start making out and call a MAP... for the time being ;)

That, is a butt-smacking idea ^_^
Great idea indeed :P


16:51:39 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Blood Spill Farmer:

nah jus make it all fake you see it CONSTANTLY where games do trailers which will never actually occur lol. Do it as a video showing the armies marching and going into battle, with some naguls flying high above then swooping down killing everyone, then it flashes to a peaceful little halflin village covered in pumpkins, then flashes to some giant fortress up on a hill under siege with aloada catapults firing at it, flashes to some elves practicing magic in some mystical kinda foresty place, then lastly a stinky troll attempting to kill a fly lol. And put some kl music tracks in.


17:08:35 Jul 15th 08 - Sir Gonzo The Great:

I like it :P


17:14:29 Jul 15th 08 - Sir Evans:

"lastly a stinky troll attempting to kill a fly lol"

make it a serker swinging and hitting all the otehr troops :P


17:28:00 Jul 15th 08 - Sir Gonzo The Great:

VU.jpg picture by chivz92

Use this as the last pic in the video ;)


17:35:42 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Sin:

That's the example. It should by a way more professional, longer, finished etc. Just an example how it could look.

Though I think my picture will bring more people in ;)

A zerker swinging a TREE and killing all other troops (including its friends)
and maybe at the end....there can be a wide open plain and each race charging towards the middle and when they meet the screen can flash(or freeze) and then "Visual Utopia" appears


18:36:46 Jul 15th 08 - Mr. Blood Spill Farmer:

ye the videos pretty kl but i think we need to make a decision whether to go with something which will NEVER actually occur in the game but will probly attract more people or if we want to be honest and show the actual game play just simply sped up.


18:45:29 Jul 15th 08 - Duchess Lorelisi:

Um...this is not a giant, costly project and it should be relevant to gameplay.  So sorry, probably no hot women.

The game Zelderex has a neat intro animation that kind of overviews the game, perhaps you can use it as a model.

That one is perfect but dont use English or American women they are to ugly use Swedish, Norweigan,  southamerican and Persian women instead.

And we have to use men from Scandinavia as well for the same reason.
Me Rox and Sexymon maybe if Zeta dont want Sezys role.


05:49:16 Jul 16th 08 - Prince Waldorfius Septim:

An old human warlord sits up on a hill, a red cape flailing behind him. He raises his sword and knights on horses charge by him and flaming arrows fly over him. On the other side an orc warchief stands with his axe, he sees the humans charge at him and raises his axe. Nazgul fly over him and other assorted orcs run by him. The two forces clash and a bright screen flashes. It shows the aftermath, the humans are dead with the orcs victorious, the orc chieftain lets out a battlecry and suddenly sees something out of the corner of his eye. He turns to see a merge of halfing adventurers, elven spellcasters, and dwarven warriors. The orc turns and points his axe forward, a merge of trolls and orcs run by him and nazgul fly over him. They clash and the screen fades to white, "Visual Utopia" appears in gold letters.

Just a thought


06:58:36 Jul 16th 08 - Mr. Atreides:

Yay! I'm all for the "nothing to do with the real game but it'll look so fcking awesome" ideas!


08:50:54 Jul 16th 08 - Sir Gonzo The Great:

Yer, alot better :P


09:43:17 Jul 16th 08 - Mr. Harry The Crazy:

Me and Brashen know what would get the players here.

Hell, our idea isn't lieing either :P

16:18:38 Jul 17th 08 - Mr. Samulis:

focus on the things that VU has that others dont:

the admin actually PLAYS the game and ANSWERS QUESTIONS.

the players can help MAKE the game and make IMAGES FOR THE GAME.

the game is very free-style and there is like no 'member' or 'better player' things, just a gift for DONATIONS which dont give you better units, just expantion of rights.

the game in enjoyable and doesint take long to learn and is laid out in a easy-to-learn fasion.

the players are MOSTLY NICE and will help you if you have a question.

there are NATIVES to BEAT UP or get silly answers out of.

 

come on, dont you see? there are great things about VU that other places dont have.


22:30:28 Jul 17th 08 - Prince Waldorfius Septim II:

the players are MOSTLY NICE and will help you if you have a question.

That sure applies to Cobra! ;-)
