The completely remade 3D edition of UFO Racer is finally on Wii! The Wii port even features motion controls like it did in the 2D version that preceded this.

Along with porting it I’ve made a few improvements. The high score is saved every time you finish a lap, there is now on screen text telling you what your time was from the previous lap, there have been slight changes to the track geometry and texture, the track is now loaded from an external file (it was previously hard coded into the game) and the font used for on screen text has also changed.

It’s a minor update for PS3 but there will be more to come in the future. I’m planning to add a level editor.

Recycle today for a better tomorrow! Cubicle Shooter City is a top down dual stick shooter that uses the city generator I made for Hero City 2 and the character models from Cubicle Shooter. To be honest I’m not very happy with how it turned out. It performs poorly and I think it looks ugly. Does anyone want me to continue working on this? What would you like to see added or changed? There where a few things I was planning to do but now I think I’m most likely going to just abandon this.

in b4 someone gives me shit for making a new game and abandoning it to move on to other things instead of sinking 20 years of my life into perfecting its mediocrity.

I will definitely be working on UFO Racer this month, I’m also going to be posting source code soon and for any of you with a homebrew enabled Wii I’ll be making Wii ports of Cubicle Shooter City and UFO Racer very soon. So you have all of that to look forward to.

UFO Racer v3.0 – PS3

This will be the third time I have made this game (remade not just ported), and I have become exceedingly efficient at it. It is however the first time it is on PS3 and it’s back to being in 3D (though for the time being it isn’t rendering 100% correctly like it is in the above screenshot) so huzzah for that.

UFO Racer, as the self-explanatory title suggests, is a racing game involving extra terrestrials in hovering/flying vehicles. Some stats are displayed on screen showing how much of the looping track you have finished, how many times you have completed a lap and what the shortest amount of time you have done so in has been.

Use the analog stick(s) to control the ship.

I’ll be updating, fixing up and improving it as soon as I get the time but I’m really trying to get some other things done before the end of the month so I’ll be busy for the next few days.

The Catachthonic v0.95 – PS3

So I’ve fixed the bug that caused The Catachthonic to crash in certain situations on PS3 and re wrote some other things.

I’ve added on screen text informing you of what kind of ability you have selected, you can now destroy blocks while they are falling, now you can reset everything without needing to exit the game and I also made some changes to the controls.

PS3 controls:
Left analog stick = Move
Right analog stick = Aim
L1 = Switch between first and third person view
R1 = Perform an action
Directional pad = Change what action you will perform
Select = reset the world

The Catachthonic v0.9 – PS3

Here is the first PS3 release of The Catachthonic (a 3D first/third person game/toy with an interactive environment and a verity of random abilities).

Use the left analog stick to move, right analog stick to aim, X to jump, Circle to switch from first and third person view, Square to perform an action (like raising the ground, spawning a block, spawning a person to follow you, turning on or off slow motion, etc), and use the left and right buttons to change what action you will be performing.

This is a remake of the game Snake. You just move around eating the white circles for points. The more you eat the longer you get. If you run into your own tail or the edges of the world then its game over.

Wii controls:
Nunchuk analog stick = Turn

PS3 controls:
Analog sticks = Turn

PS3 updates and source code

EDIT: A more recent upload of the source code + PSL1GHT can be found here.

Here are some very small updates. The projection matrix is being properly calculated now so it takes into account the actual aspect ratio and uses the correct FOV resulting in the games looking more like their Wii and Windows counterparts (though some of them still noticeably fall short in other ways). In addition to that the games that previously instructed you to press the A button to start the game now correctly tell you to press the X button. When playing in Neo Tanks you now only shoot when holding the R1 button. There have been some changes made to the ship in Neo Trail and the symbols have been removed from the sides of blocks.

Cherophobe v1.1
Cylinder Dodge v1.1
Gambol v0.3
Hero City v0.6
Neo Tanks v0.3
Neo Trail v0.2

You can download the source code for all of my publicly released PS3 stuff (since I switched to using PSL1GHT and with the exception of Avoidance) here. The last time I uploaded source for my PS3 stuff was before I made Neo Trail and a few other things and anyways the hosting sites I used at the time (fileserve and mulitupload) have effectively shut down so this is the only place to get it right now.

Neo Trail v0.1 – PS3

In Neo Trail you control a ship that is constantly moving forward. Once you pass over a square on the grid it will begin to raise up. If you get pushed up onto the top of a fully raised block then the game will reset.

The high score is displayed but not saved.

I’m not sure if it’s similar enough to be considered a clone (although that is what it was originally going to be) but it’s obviously inspired by that movie. You know the one.

Later I might add split screen multiplayer and/or an NPC to play against.

PS3 controls:
Analog sticks = Turn

The Jarred Mind 3 v0.9 – PS3

By popular demand: I now present to you the shocking third installment in the episodic trilogy known as Adventures of the Jarred Mind! The banana ball is you! The chocolate rabbit is your friend! The zorbing zebra is your enemy!

So, yeah… I’m not really sure what else to say about this. It’s a gameish thing that runs on PS3. I’m curious of what people think of it. I expect that most people won’t like it. For the haters though I’ll probably be making and posting something else that’s simple but more of an actual game and less lolwut some time soon.

PS3 controls:
Left analog stick = Move
X Button = Jump
