Zombie Pong – Feb 19 Update

New screenshot! Just up’d the game’s default resolution to 1280 x 720, and with that, fixed-up and updated a bunch of the game’s assets.

Features features features.

This little zombie pong game is coming along nicely. Yet despite being a rather simple game, there’s still tons of work to do on menus and non-gameplay related stuff. Also, all kinds of crazy ideas like an unlockables system for earning new paddles and powerups, more zombie AI behaviors, zombie bosses, a million different powerups, and the list goes on.

Functioning Menus

My zombie game now has a functioning menu system. Granted the code for it is a huge mess and really, REALLY needs to be refactored… for now, it works, and has some button art:

Right now it just uses the keyboard Up/Down arrows to cycle through the options.  I’ll probably also add mouse and controller support for it.

Zombie Pong – Jan 21 Update

After a month or so, finally started working on my zombie pong game again with the goal to GET IT DONE. Ain’t a whole lot of new stuff to look at, except powerup crates and better blood FX.  Older screenshot here.

Picked up the Cyan Complete pack on Steam while on winter break – and after fighting to get them to actually run (and be playable) on my Windows 7 laptop, I decided to doodle a scene from Myst Island.

Random mouse/keyboard issue in Karmic

I’m not sure how long Ubuntu has been doing this, but the other day while trying out Half-Life 2 in Wine, I was noticing that I couldn’t move with the keyboard and look around with the mouse at the same time – I was thinking it was just a HL2 / Wine specific problem, until I noticed the same thing happening in my browser, I couldn’t move the mouse while typing or holding any key on the keyboard.

Riven X

An awesome project that’s creating a native Mac OS X version of Riven.  If you own the CD version of the game, Riven X also lets you copy all the game data from the CDs onto your harddrive so you don’t have to constantly swap discs.
