  1. Fursan al-Aqsa - Old City of Jerusalem On this article I showcase the finished map of Jerusalem, which will be the 4th Mission of Fursan al-Aqsa's Campaign Mode, alongside some new progress on my game. It's time to protect the Holy Land, the Land of the Prophets and Messengers, the Land of our Ancestors. Zionist Forces are preparing a big strike against the Old City of Jerusalem, so it is up to you, Fidae, to protect it with your blood and soul. And if you die in this mission, Paradise will be your eternal bliss. Allah Akbar! After almost 20 days of extensive working, I finished the Map of Jerusalem, which is the 4th Campaign Mission of Fursan al-Aqsa. This is one of the biggest maps of my game, it's not a 1:1 replica of the real city, but I tried my best to make it look similar. I even found a way to convert Google Street View Panorama Images to Skybox Textures, to use them as a backdrop for the maps. The final results are good, as these custom skyboxes add a depth to the maps. Another Milestone for this project is that my game was selected for the Independent Games Festival this year, a long life dream which I finally achieved. Even though my game doesn't be selected as a finalist, but the fact of participating on the biggest event for Indie Games is for sure a milestone for any game dev out there! I thank Allah (God) for this and also thank you all who are following my game, those who are supporting me here and elsewhere. Jazakom Allah Khayr (May God give you all the best). https://igf.com/knights-al-aqsa-mosque Another very important achivement for me is that my game got noticed by the legendary Martin Hollis, the main programmer and director of the original Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64! My game, despite having a completely different story, plot and thematics, but, on it's heart, it is a love letter for Goldeneye 007. Martin Hollis noticed this and praised my game: https://twitter.com/martinhollis/status/1359189828173238275 https://twitter.com/martinhollis/status/1359190260173987846 Also, as I am close to finish the development of #FursanAqsaGame, I decided to replay the classics #Goldeneye007 and #PerfectDark (my greatest inspirations) on a #N64 #Emulator for #Android to get more ideas for mission objectives to make my game a trully Love Letter to Goldeneye007! As I am playing these masterpieces, some cool ideas pop up into my mind, like destroying security cameras, sabotaging some israeli equipment, finding secret documents, planting bombs, invading Israeli bases, disguising yourself, murdering a specific enemy, rescuing Palestinians, and so on. And here follows some screenshots of Jerusalem Map, I hope you like it. Next step I will be making a small gameplay teaser for this map, as I have done with the previous 3 maps. For more screenshots, please go here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/images Cheers and until next update. #FursanAqsaGame #UE4 #UnrealEngine #gamedev #indiegame #indie #3dsMax #MAYA #Autodesk #PalestineFree #Intifada
  2. Fursan al-Aqsa - Official Announcement Trailer - I'm NOT Terrorist This is the Official Announcement Trailer for my game, a remake of another trailer I made before (All the power to the people of Palestine). This is a promotional trailer which I will send to those Independent Games Festivals, in the hope of getting more visibility for my game and a publisher to help me release this game and reach a bigger audience, Insha Allah (God's willing). Also on this new trailer I showcase some new weapons, animations, and a glimpse of 3 new maps: al-Aqsa Mosque (Sniper Cutscene), Old Jerusalem (the Helicopter Chase Cutscene) and Gaza Strip (Jet Fighter Bombing Cutscene). I hope you like it. English/Portuguese version: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-official-announcement-trailer Arabic version coming soon. Cheers and until next update! #FursanAqsaGame #UE3 #UE4 #UnrealEngine #gamedev #indiegame #indie #3dsMax #MAYA #Autodesk #PalestineFree #Intifada #FreePalestine Here is the original MP4 video in HD 720p High Quality: https://mega.nz/file/ElE13CQL#5aqdKTMITN8cxinwF1G6GM7wXYRUyvIvKfwygLm7v3A
  3. Fursan al-Aqsa - Official History Trailer - Ahmad al-Falastini In this article I showcase a brand new trailer for my game, the Official History Trailer which tells the history of the game's protagonist, Ahmad al-Falastini, a peaceful student who became a ferocious warrior thirsty for revenge. This trailer tells the history of Ahmad al-Falastini, the protagonist of Fursan al-Aqsa, how he turned from a peaceful student whose dream was to protect lives, into a ferocious warrior thirsty for revenge and blood. This is one of the best trailers I ever made for my game, it was a lot of work (10 days and almost 14 hours of rendering the animation in After Effects). I think this trailer gives to the player a better understanding about the protagonist's motivations to wage war against Israel. Even tough this is a fictional history, however it is based on real facts and depicts the reality of this conflict. Be sure that there in Palestine you will find very similar histories of young people who had their dreams and their lives destroyed by a Genocidal Military State which does not respect any law or human rights. Here follows the trailer. Please watch it with attention and I am sure Ahmad's history will touch your heart: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-official-history-trailer-english Also I want to share here the interview I gave to BostonFIG, which was showcased last saturday on their channel. Please watch it for understanding better my personal motivations for making this game and other insights on the game's development process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vm6tql6s1rs Last, but no least, many people to whom I talked at BostonFIG, asked me the meaning of the game's title screen music. I explained to them and now I want to explain here also. This is the Palestinian National Anthem. It talks about the Palestinian Fedayeen Warriors and their struggle for liberation of Palestine. Fedayeen (plural of Fedaye) was the name given to the palestinian guerrillas who fought for the Freedom of Palestine (the word Fedaye means martyr, i.e those who sacrify their lives for a noble cause). They had a lot of popular support to such an extent that they were considered kinda super heroes among Palestinian People, they inspired a generation of Resistant Fighters and other Islamic Military Groups. The dream of any children was to become a Fedaye, the dream of any woman on that time was to marry a Fedaye (by the way there were even Palestinian Women as Female Fedayeen Fighters), the dream of any mother and father was that their son become a Fedaye. My father voluntereed as a Fedaye for almost 12 years before coming to Brazil. So below follows the music's translation. Cheers and until next update! Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity With my determination, my fire and the volcano of my vendetta With the longing in my blood for my land and my home I have climbed the mountains and fought the wars I have conquered the impossible, and crossed the frontiers Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity With the resolve of the winds and the fire of the weapons And the determination of my nation in the land of struggle Palestine is my home, and the path of my triumphal (Palestine is my home, Palestine is my fire,) Palestine is my vendetta and the land of withstanding Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity By the oath under the shade of the flag By my land and nation, and the fire of pain I will live as a warrior, I will remain a warrior, I will die as a warrior - until my country returns Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my land, the land of the ancestors Warrior, warrior, warrior, Oh my people, people of eternity
  4. Fursan al-Aqsa - The History of Palestine With the help of my father, who made some slight adjustments to the game's narrative, I made a new trailer to let players get more immersed on the Palestine x Israel Conflict itself. I made the trailer on 3 languages (Arabic, English and Portuguese), which you can watch all of them on the video sections of Fursan al-Aqsa IndieDB profile here: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos Fursan al-Aqsa - The History of Palestine - English Trailer https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-the-history-of-palestine-english-trailer And here follows the announcement: Fursan al-Aqsa at @BostonFIG 2021 My game will be showcased at BostonFIG, one of the biggest Independent Games Festival on the United States! This is indeed another milestone for my project. Register here: https://eventbrite.com/e/bostonfig-fest-virtual-tickets-129017660295 I will wait you there, so you can talk with me, ask questions about the game, my motivations for this project, and so on. Next step will be make a new trailer about the game protagonist's history, and the motivations who made him fight against Israel Army. Last, but not least, after a long time, I updated and revamped my game's Website (and I even customized my game's profile on IndieDB, to make it's design as close as possible to the site's design), to make it a showcase for the upcoming events and games festivals on which my game #FursanAqsaGame will be showcased: https://www.fursanaqsa.com/ Cheers and until next update.
  5. Fursan al-Aqsa - Mossad Office Teaser This is a small teaser for the Third Mission of Fursan al-Aqsa Campaign Mode. This is a Mossad Office located in Telaviv. Your mission is to infiltrate in this Office and find some important document about a big attack Israel is preparing against the Old City of Jerusalem. This mission is one of the best missions of the game, because the disguise mechanics (in the best Hitman Style). I hope you enjoy. https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-mossad-office-teaser #FursanAqsaGame #UE3 #UE4 #UnrealEngine #gamedev #indiegame #indie #3dsMax #MAYA #Autodesk #PalestineFree #Intifada

  7. Thank you for electing Fursan al-Aqsa among the Top 100 Games of 2020 I would like to thank you all for your AWESOME support, my dear friends. Fursan al-Aqsa made into the Top 100 Indie Games of 2020. Now I need your help to make it into the Top 10 Indie Games of 2020, as this will be very important for me whenever talking to publishers (I am sure this will encourage them to publish my game). Please vote again: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque And here follows a new update, Fursan al-Aqsa - Camp Ariel Sharon Teaser: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-camp-ariel-sharon-teaser This is a small teaser of the Second Mission of Fursan al-Aqsa Campaign Mode.

I know for some people this number may seem nothing, but for me, for all the hardships I am suffering on this project, be the technical challenges and the censoring I did suffer in many places, this is a MILESTONE: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/downloads
  9. Hello friends! Some great news here! Please, vote for Fursan al-Aqsa: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque Today began the IndieDB Best Indie Game of 2020 Competition. Last year my game was selected among the top 100 Indie Games of 2019. Now I need your help to make my game be among the Top 10 of 2020, and below I explain why. A great Indie Games Publisher showed too much interest on my game, and I am now working on an updated and revamped build of my game to send them, and If they approve, and everything goes well, be sure my game will be a worlwide success, Insha Allah (God's Willing)! I am sure that whenever any publisher sees that players are loving my game, that players selected my game as one of the best from 2020, this will encourage ANY publisher to get my game, and releasing my game through a Publisher will mean it will reach a MUCH BIGGER audience (than releasing myself), and this means you will be able to play game on PS4, Xbox One and maybe even on PS5 and Xbox Series X! So EVERYONE wins. Another imporant news, is that my father (the greatest inspiration for my game), decided to help me in this project (after he has seen the HUGE sucess my game is making arround the web. He is helping by providing important informations about Palestinian Guerrilla and the Israel x Palestine Conflict in general, Classic Palestinian Nasheeds (musics), helping me with Arabic Localization, he made some slight changes on the game narrative (to make it more realistic and historical accurate), as he lived this conflict (he fought for the freedom of Palestine). Now the game has a more Palestinian Revolution Feeling, more Nationalist and less Religious, and the game on its actual state is much more polished, balanced and better to play than the 2 previous demos I released. I learned from my father to don't wait things come to me, I must make things happen. So I submitted my game to as many indie games festivals I could, and one of these festivals invited me to a business meeting with some publishers, and this publisher was there. They told me my game is exactly the kind of game they are looking for, a lot of bullets, blood and explosions :D. They asked me to send them a pitching document with all informations about my game, also they sent me many forms to fill (like my budget, my post launch plan,...) and off course a playable build of my game. So I asked them sometime to polish my game better and send them an almost finished version of the game (the more complete the game more chances for them accepting it). And now I am working like crazy to finish this build of my game. Here follows some new updates on the game itself:
  10. Hello folks. Here follows some more weapons I made for my game:
  11. We never give up! We never bow to our enemies! We're gonna resist with bullets until our last breath! Here follows some of the arsenal you will have on #FursanAqsaGame for trucidating Zionists without mercy! #indiegame #UE3 #UnrealEngine #indiedev #FreePalestine #Zionism
  12. This is another toy for my collection This is the IWI TAR-21 Submachine Gun with all it's glory and gore! #FursanAqsaGame #indiegame #indiedev #UE3 #UE4 #UnrealEngine #gamedesign #3dAnimation #3dmodeling #3dsmax #maya #ModernWarfare #CallOfDuty #CallOfJihad #FreePalestine
  13. And it was love at a first glance! Here I show my newest toy, the M249 Machine Gun with all it's glory! This is the reload animation, it was done manually with keyframing inside 3dsmax. https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/m249-reload-animation-and-sounds I hope you enjoy!
  14. Look at this bad boy. Whenever he gets mad, he simply blows things up!
  15. Fursan al Aqsa Pseudo Raytracing Showcase https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-raytracing-showcase
  16. Hello friends! I created a Facebook Page for my game, so please, let's share it. And drop a like there to support me! Thanks! https://www.facebook.com/fursanaqsa
  17. Fursan al-Aqsa Pseudo Raytracing on GTS360M, PS3 and Xbox360! Download PC: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/downloads/fursan-al-aqsa-infiltration-pc/ PS3: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/downloads/fursan-al-aqsa-infiltration-ps3 Xbox360: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/downloads/fursan-al-aqsa-infiltration-xbox360 Today I want to showcase a Pseudo #Raytracing #Shader I made for #FursanAqsaGame and it runs smoothly on #GTS360M/#PS3/#Xbox360! I updated the Demo with this shader and a better balanced difficulty. This is NOT a real raytracing effect, however, the final results are good enough, as I showcase below, and most importantly, it does not reduce performance, as it is just a material setup. I updated the Demo with this new shader and a better balanced difficulty. This new shader basically uses the Unreal Engine 3 Material Function called Reflection Vector and a metallic reflection texture (an image file), everything linked to the Specular Map Input and Multiplied by the Diffuse Input of Unreal Engine 3 Material editor, as you can see here: Here follows some screenshots Cheers and until next update!
  18. Hello friends! If you did not watch, here is my game shinning at IndieCade's GameSlam: https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-streamed-at-indie-cade-gameslam-2020
  19. Allah Akbar! All the praise be to Allah! My game will be showcased on @IndieCade Festival, GameSlam Opening Event! This is a dream coming true!
  20. Fursan al-Aqsa Infiltration - PC 64bit Patch https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/downloads/fursan-al-aqsa-infiltration-pc-64bit-patch This is just the 64bit version of Fursan al-Aqsa Game Executable, which I am providing because some Windows 10 users are experiencing some crashes while running the game, as Win10 has some compatibility problems with old 32bit applications. To "install" this patch, simply copy the zip file to: C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\My Games\Fursan al-Aqsa Infiltration\Binaries\ Extract the zip file there, then run the game direcly: C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\My Games\Fursan al-Aqsa Infiltration\Binaries\Win64\FursanAqsaGame.exe
  21. Fursan al-Aqsa Announcement Trailer - All the Power to the People of Palestine Watch the video: http://tiny.cc/om0zsz Soundtrack by Rodrigo KTarse (https://www.youtube.com/user/rodrigo17290) the Great Insurgent Rapper of Brazil's Guetos! Updated Demo Download PC Version: http://tiny.cc/ym0zsz Download PS3 Version: http://tiny.cc/zm0zsz Download Xbox360 Version: http://tiny.cc/1n0zsz This Updated Demo of Fursan al-Aqsa - Knights of al-Aqsa Mosque will allow players to have a taste of the Campaign Mode, which has a gameplay very similar to (and inspired by) the Classic Shooter Goldeneye 007, with many mission objectives to complete on each "mission", such as destroying security cameras, sabotaging some Israeli equipment, finding documents that reveal more details about the game’s plot, planting bombs, invading Israeli bases, finding and murdering a specific enemy, rescuing Palestinian civilians, hijacking vehicles, taking down planes. Adding to this, there is a Multiplayer Map, Battle of Negev Desert, so you all can revive the Golden Days of Split Screen Multiplayer Games. On consoles (PS3 and Xbox360), the multiplayer mode works outside the box, as for PC, you need to have 2 Xbox360 Gamepads for PC. However, it works aswell with ANY PC Gamepad through the Xbox360 Controller Emulator, which is already included with PC Version. After you install the PC Version, just go to C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\My Games\Fursan al-Aqsa Press Beta\Support\Xbox360ControllerEmulator.zip All the intructions are there. The full version of this game will be released in January 2021, Insha Allah (God's Willing) I hope you all enjoy this updated demo, as there is too much love, dedication and many sleepless nights spent on this project. Assalamu Alaykum, may the Peace be upon You! Nidal Nijm. Note: There is a small bug in the game (which does not interfere with gameplay), it is a bug in the version of Unreal Engine 3 that I am using. Sometimes, when the player leans against some walls and tries to shoot, the projectile of the weapon is not launched. To solve this, just tap in any direction (W, A, S, D / analog directional on consoles) and shoot again. This is because the starting point of the projectile launch in Unreal Engine 3 is calculated in relation to the position of the player's camera, and sometimes the camera is "pressed" on some walls when the player is too close, losing the starting point of calculation for launching the projectile.
  22. Here I showcase the first person mode for some guns of my game, especially the pistols, greatly inspired by the classic Goldeneye 007. https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-fps-guns My game is a Third Person Shooter, however, listening to the desire and feedback of many players who played my game`s first demo, I added the possibility to change between first person and third person view at any time in the game, pleasing both worlds (FPS fans and TPS fans). But for the sake of keeping this reference to Goldeneye 007, I decided to only add hands models to pistols (otherwise they will not look good), as for the rifles, they dont have first person arms. It`s a game design decision. Also I manually made the reload and equip/holster weapons animation to remember as much as I can Goldeneye 007. I hope you enjoy, and very soon I will release a new demo for my game, the "Infiltration Demo". More details soon. Cheers!
  23. For today I want to showcase a new map I am making for #FursanAqsaGame. This will be a Mossad Office Headquarter, the Israeli Secret Service. Your mission is to infiltrate on the office, and find some important documents about a new attack Israel is planning against Palestine.
  24. This is just a sneak peek of the Explosive Action and Epic Bosses Battles which awaits you on Fursan al-Aqsa.
  25. Fursan al-Aqsa Drone Gameplay Hello guys! I want to showcase a brand new vehicle which will be used on some Campaign Missions of Fursan al-Aqsa Game. Intelligence in times of war means killing your opponents with their own weapons... Enjoy this new gameplay showing off the drone, which you will use in many missions across the Campaign Mode of #FursanAqsaGame https://www.indiedb.com/games/fursan-al-aqsa-knights-of-al-aqsa-mosque/videos/fursan-al-aqsa-drone-gameplay
