ZOPU is an independent offshoot project from ZEQ2-Lite, utilizing some of its art assets for the purposes of creating and testing gameplay and game mechanics ideas. The project itself is not a fully functional game, but rather its many systems have been created for the purposes of learning the complex Blueprint Visual Scripting system in UE4 for better game development skills for use in other projects. While the goal is not to make ZOPU into a full game necessarily, the main purpose of the project is as a research project to as closely emulate the Dragonball world in an interactive and fully explorable way as possible, which will help advance a variety of game development related skills in the process.
Short version? ZOPU is a testing ground for game development techniques and tasks, or otherwise something to work on when I’m bored and want to try out new ideas.
