Blazin' trails

Wow, over a year since the last update, and the worst thing is,  I haven't really done any work on the partygame..  sigh.

But now I'm working on a remake of the classic C64 title Trailblazer

Today I've fiddled around a bit with character movement and animation for my platformer game.

I would love to have a character like in Tiny Open world  but alas, I suck at 3d modeling, so my basic characters will have to do for now :)

After the I made some simple animations for idle, walk, run, jump and doublejump,  I quickly setup the animator states and blendtree and added them to my (very basic) charactercontroller and lookie here, we have a little moving jumping guy who can also double jump :)

Redid some work on my character prefabs and anims. they now point in the actual transform.forward direction. So my rotations in game can be a bit more logical :)

Started work on a new game, but didn't have a lot of time for it, so I got as far as a simple setup with some players that can move around.

I'm thinking of making a coop platform or something? got inspired by the Game grumps playing Mario World 3d or maybe a shooter.. I don't know yet.  suggestions welcome :)

Now that I have more than 1 game, I've added a simple level select screen.
So you can go from character select, to game select, to game, and back to game select, yaay

I've also fiddled around a little with post processing for the reaction game.
Lets see if this animgif works

New Game

After years of having an inspiration block. I finally decided what game I want to create.

Now I've changed jobs since my last post and am now a Unity developer, so my next game is going to be a Unity game. It will be a local multiplayer partygame for PC's using controllers. I'm getting inspiration heavily from Fusion Frenzy on the Xbox classic and old atari and c64 games.

I'm making it for myself and my friends. No plans on going public or stuff like that :)

 The first minigame is an Atari 2600 inspired Combat game, and specifically the funnest level we always played.. level 7 (bouncing bullets) but this time with 4 players.

 

 The second game, I just started working on this evening is a reaction game where you need to jump over or duck under obstacles.

Interaction in unity3d with Google Vr sdk (google cardboard)

I'm putting this mini tutorial here because I keep forgetting each step to get stuff interactive in Unity3d with Google VR sdk
Install the Google VR Unity sdk ( https://github.com/googlevr/gvr-unity-sdk )
Assets - Import Package - Custom Package
locate the google sdk where you downloaded it,
select all and import.

Next delete the main camera from the scene.
Add the GoogleVR-prefabs/GVRMain.
Add GoogleVR-prefabs/UI/GvrReticle to the GvrMain/Head object.

Add a floor object. 20x1x20, give it a texture so you can see it better when moving.
Move the GvrMain up about 1.8 m

You can now look around and have a reticle.

Now we want to be able to interact with objects and have the reticle have a sortof 'mouseOver'-effect.
To get this to work we need to:
Add a Physics Raycaster component to GvrMain/Head/Main Camera.
Add ui/EventSystem to our scene.
Add GazeInputModule to the EventSystem in our hierarchy. Make sure to move this up so that its above the StandaloneInput module.

Now we add a cube to the scene, and add an Event Trigger component to it. (This is important, because without the eventTrigger (even if you dont have an event added) the GvrReticle will NOT ot respond when you look at the object)

Thats the minimum you need to get object interactivity.
You can now add a ointer click event for example and do some useful stuff there.


Next step, how to get the coordinates of the location you clicked on.

Iso map

I've been wanting to write an ISO game for a long time now, but I've never gotten my game idea straight.

Still haven't... so I decided to just start off with an ISO map routine first and see how well it runs on my Playbook.

Here's what I've come up with so far. not much functionality, but it works, and its nice and smooth on playbook. (Where we unfortunately can't use Starling because it doesnt support Stage3d yet :(

Click here (move mouse over screen to see it once loaded ;)
