Just Roll With It – new video & Web Port

Posted by
Tuesday, April 26th, 2016 8:30 am

Hello everyone,

We finally had some time to record a play-through of the first couple of levels of Just Roll With It, using just the Omni and Oculus Rift DK2. The game is designed to be played entirely without a controller, mouse nor keyboard… just you and your human-sized hamster ball. Check out the video below and come play the web-port if you don’t have a DK2.

Since not many people have VR devices, or even less an Omni, we just released a web port so you can all check it out. Unfortunately, its not as exciting when you don’t get to run head first into a boulder, but you get the idea.

Just Roll With It – is a game originally intended for Oculus DK2 and Virtuix Omni, where you must roll around in a human sized hamster ball to solve a few puzzles. More info and WebGL port in the game link:

TeamEC: The human hamster ball

Well, its been over 24 hours and we’ve managed to get our Omni, Oculus and Unity to cooperate. Here we have the silly idea of a player walking around in a human-sized hamster ball, with the objective of solving puzzles.

Currently there are only 50 people in the world who are a part of the Virtuix Omni Pathfinder program, but we still thought it would be a blast if we could do something fun with it. Even though you may not be able to play this now, I hope we can convey our game idea.

Here is a link to the video if you wish to see more: https://youtu.be/wfeLx2kaBjE

Here we are 1 week till the end of voting and I finally got some applications to build to my very own Samsung Gear VR!

 

About a week ago I got this device and a Moga Pro Power controller but have been having some frustrating issues getting it to build for mobile.

Come check out our game and try out our Oculus DK2 version (if you have one) and let us know if you want to see it on the Gear VR!

Frame1 (1)

There was so much we wanted to accomplish… yet only so much could be done. Even though we have a little bit of experience in past Ludum Dare Jams, we again aimed for the skies and fell very short from what we wanted to accomplish. However! we are not dead yet. With the awesome momentum we’ve picked up over the past few days, we’ve decided to continue development and make this game a reality.

After getting in the core basic mechanics in, we can now move to adding a bit of flare to our graphics. Check out or progress and keep an eye on us as we will be releasing more updates in the “post-Jam” link.

Gimbal Fighter – We made it!… somewhat

Posted by
Tuesday, August 26th, 2014 8:46 pm

Well, here we are.  End of our 3rd Ludum Dare and more tired than ever. Our Jam group stood strong as we lost our third developer right out of the gate and two of us continued on with a game concept waaay to ambitious for our diapers.

But no excuses and no regrets! we have paved the foundation for an awesome game and we want to continue at it.

I present to you: Gimbal Fighter

Snazzy space stuff

Losing the battle against an invading armada of battleships, you are tasked to turn the tables of war by flying into enemy territory and deploying a newly designed Warp Gate. Your tiny space ship “Gimbal Fighter” is designed to warp in, drop a warp beacon, defend it till construction is built, and wait for reinforcements.

The game play was designed around a rotating spherical cockpit that would allow you to rotate freely, shoot in any direction, and maintain flight path… Great for guerrilla warfare bombing runs.

We certainly did not get as far as we wanted to in the development of this game, but at least we had fun doing it and we’re definitely going to keep going till we finish. Keep an eye on us, give us some feedback, and check out our other games here:

Sky Shepherd gets a web port

Posted by
Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 6:57 pm

Originally the game was designed to run on Android only, however we thought it would be nice to get a web port as well. To play Sky Shepherd on web (with the Unity web plugin), you can use the Left and Right arrows (or A and D  keys) to tilt the platform and use the mouse to click on power-ups and enemies.

SkySheperd_Intro

In retrospect:

Things we could have added or changed, more graphics and animations, additional items / powerups we didnt have time to impelemnt, backgrounds (representing different zones: candy world, under-water, cave/underground, space). And ofcourse better sounds.

If you have an android phone, come test it out and let us know if there are any problems. If we continue to polish it, we’ll release an iOS version as well. For those who don’t have a smartphone, check out our web build!

Sky Shepherd

So… how about that theme?

We are pushing out our first LD mobile game where your objective is to keep some sheep alive. You see, it all started with a messed up dream one of our team-mates had about trying to balance sheep on a platform. Don’t ask me why or what this means, but we turned it into a silly mobile game. So without further delay, I present to you Sky Shepherd

SkySheperd_Intro

In this game, you touch the left and right sides of the screens to activate thrusters placed “below the surface” (I feel dirty using the theme like this). The idea? keep the sheep from falling off the platform and watch out for other stuff falling from the sky.

screenshot1

You can imagine how things could get crazy pretty quickly. Between rams breeding, wolves eating, bombs exploding and cotton candy… ummm… doing whatever cotton candy does (make stuff sticky), the player is in for a rough ride straight down oblivion.

And of course, the inevitable death…
