Sarah and The City of Dead

Did a bit of Photoshop work today to get a placeholder logo in the game build menus. This is the result of an hour so of work.

Introducing one of my current mobile game projects. This is the story of a young lady stuck in a world that has deteriorated. She’s alone for now, and struggling to survive.

It’s rough right now. When on a two week schedule to get this game out of the door, things are rough at the start.

I put the new Everyplay SDK into this Android project and it worked and uploaded right to Youtube. Doesn’t look bad at all considering this was recorded directly from my Samsung Galaxy S2 (which is an older Android device.) This is a project that’s currently in a prototype state.

Last but not least an early screenshot of our protagonist hero for this game.

NOTE : In the final development stage will revisit her texture and make sure her clothing is more appropriate for her surroundings (i.e. post apocalyptic world). Right now she looks like she walked out of Old Navy.

Skate N Crash – Android Mobile Game

I’ve finally finished up a short term project called Skate N Crash. It’s an endless runner, with a skater and obstacles you have to trick off of. The game took about 5 days to complete and is free on the Google Play Store. I’m willing to share code or insights into how anything in the game was accomplished. Everything is very low poly: Character is 500 polygons with a 256×256 texture. The world is comprised of sections of about 700 polygons and uses some 512×512 and 256×256 textures. It’s also lit via lightmapping and old school vertex lighting. Just shoot away if you have any questions.

Bird of Prey – Web Demo

Going to link to a project that’s going in tandem with development of Super Kart Racing. All of the info about the game is on the website.

Updated a few new things. Added in new GUI elements for health. Changed up the controls a bit too. Feedback from some folks resulted in what I feel is more intuitive for keyboard control.

Here is the link to the webplayer:

Unity Engine – Stock Car Demo Project

Hey everyone. I’ve put up a lot of free Unity goodies. Today is a full free project of a Nascar driving demo. It’s pretty decent physics for a Nascar Stock car. The track is based off of Daytona International Speedway. Anyways, go check out the freebies at http://www.fatboxsoftware.com under the Resources tab.

Resource for Schematics/Blueprints

I’m always looking for reference. Today I was seeking out 2d drawings of WWII aircraft and I came upon this little gem on the web.

Look through this guy’s gallery. Tons of schematics for all kinds of things. A very thorough weapon schematic gallery, tons of aircraft, Iron Man and sci fi schematics. You name it, this guy has it…with the exception of cars.
