3 Little Pigs

by brita_ - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is a short 3D game where you play as Big Bad Wolf to reclaim your lunch ham.
Gameplay is extremely simple and based on bringing the pig's houses down.

-------- How to Play --------
Use WASD or arrows keys to move and Space to jump.
Eat the pig to pass the level. There are two (not random!) alternate game endings .

-------- Theme & Sound --------
Theme: this is a classic of architectonic evolution :-)
There is no sound or music, don't look for it, it's just not there.

-------- My goals --------
My goal for this Ludum Dare was to learn how to work with the Blender Game Engine.
I managed to learn a lot and to produce this game in the last 12 hours (as proof).
3Little Pigs is not supposed to be a great game, it's the results of a learning experience.

-------- Tools used --------
Blender 2.63a and Gimp 2.6
The game was made with the Blender Game Engine, which means OpenGL, the Bullet Physics Engine and Python.
Also, it only has textures working properly thanks to the Blender community (thank you Olson, Qantourisc and meta-androcto).

Source and binaries are under GPL.

I liked the idea that you have to overcome physics to get to the delicious sheeps :) The first to levels were a bit to easy while the last was best imho. The end-screens were really funny :) If you hadn't told me I probably wouldn't have found out how to get to the second ending.

another blender user :D
Very good idea, but very short and doesn't fit the theme
Also I'm wondering why I didn't integrated this in my game

@josefnpat I'm very sorry it didn't work. I managed to understand what the problem was. The link is now updated and should work.

@kevincorrigan can you be more specific? What system are you running? Has it given any error?

Worked fine here (ArchLinux x86_64). This is a fun take on the big bad wolf. I only found one of the endings.

Haha, nice game :-) Controls are to wobbly but this remembers me somehow of carmageddon :-) Nice physicsthingy! And +1 for Blender Game Engine.

Nice endings :D Knocking down things is always fun, and this is a nice take on that :)

Somehow it feels very fulfilling to knock down a brick wall....great game!

nice physics, not much of a game though, would have been more fun if they tried to run from you or escape the house if tried crashing through or something.

The Linux 32bits and OS/X versions are now available, but yet to be tested by the masses :-D

Funny :) Smashing those houses felt nice, the gravity was a bit Moon-like.

Cute little game. It would be nice to have more to each level and things like you can only bash bricks if you find the helmet.

Nice little game. I don't get the relation to the theme, but it was fun to make these buildings collapse. The pigs are cute ^^ round wobbly forms always win!

I really wanted to hurt that pig because the bricks were so damn annoying. I guess I got into the game, so good job!

Wish it had more levels... Cool concept, even if it doesn't have anything to do with theme.
