New Unity Project 2

I absolutely suck at naming my projects, so “New Unity Project 2” is really a new exclusive Shield TV Game.

Why The NVIDIA Sheild TV (2005 verison 16gb)? 

I was partly inspired by the new Nintendo NX ( ūüė¶ sadly I won’t be getting one for the foreseeable future), and how similar the hardware may be — even if it is a bit updated.

I also didn’t want to be constricted to a phone once again as I have in the past, and A lot of my games were mobile, but I haven’t done anything serious with the NVIDIA Shield TV, so I wanted a bit freedom to play with in terms of power, and quite frankly, and wanted to use a regular controller for once.

The Results? 

In a short span I’ve managed to get the analog sticks working. You may look around, and move.

So whats next?

I’m not quite sure yet. Maybe a Scifi-Theme, RPG mashup so unbalanced, and buggy it might pass for a Bethesda game. Just kidding!! I love all their games!

On a personal level:

I’ve been attending group therapy 4 times a day, for roughly 3 hours a day. I think it’s quite easy to see how motivation to do any sort of programming, game design, or anything computer related might be a bit of a hassle. I do suffer from depression, anxiety. So excuse the lack of updates .

About: Primitive Combat Simulation.

So, what is Primitive Combat Simulation, and what was the inspiration behind this game?

Screenshot_2016-07-31-12-24-09.png

 

Well, it started off simply because I¬†can’t¬†run/play the new Doom game – Yes, seriously. My hardware simply doesn’t support it. I’m also no stranger to browsing the id software github repository from time to time – mainly to read C code. I’m inspired by the games/engines.

My first stab at a 3D first person shooter was with Project Isolation. It runs as intended, but the project file is a mess. I toyed around with several more fps projects afterwards, but nothing ever came out of it, and well, here we are now.

Fun fact, Quake 2 was the first fps I ever played, and it was on the Playstation

What is the gameplay like?

Wolfenstein 3D mixed with Doom. The core gameplay consist of retrieving a key to unlock the next level, shooting enemies, and picking up supplies to replenish yourself with. Really Рnothing fancy. Just a simple mindless shooter to pick up, and play.

The android version is as simplistic, and clean as I could make it. There is a joystick on the bottom left of the screen. You can use the right side of the screen to look around, and finally a menu button. There is however an ad banner placed at the top, but nothing more. There are no inapp purchases, and no ad pop ups. Just a simple game, with simple controls.

SpaceWaves 2.0 update.

 

Yesterday (7/23/2016) I decided to update SpaveWaves a bit, and bring it into a more modern project setting.

  • Enemies spawn much¬†faster now¬†which improves the games pace.
  • I cleaned up the UI

Note I quickly tested the game, so it might need a bit more of a balance adjusting, nothing too major I would assume.
