New Videos of LavaBall (July 12th release)

Postby seed » Fri Apr 16, 2010 4:31 pm

EDIT - We are just around the corner from releasing Lava Ball 3D for android. Beta testing is nearly complete. We released 3 new videos of the game running on a Mot Droid. You can go to www.exit4gaming.com for more information or directly to the videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/pultorak1

Thanks



EDIT - If you have an EVO and want to test LavaBall, please send me an email at czimmerm@exit4gaming.com.

EDIT - Tons of new screenshots of LavaBall have been posted at the Exit 4 Gaming website. Check them out.

So, I started with the notion of creating a decent game for Andriod using OpenGL. At that time I had no OpenGl experence, no Android experience, had never coded collision detection, and had never touched Java before. Not the best foundation. What I did have was some 3D graphics knowledge, a little self taught Direct3D experience, game mod experience (quake), tons of software knowledge, a few good ideas, and a determination to "do it right". I don't want to create a crappy app.

Anyway, I just got the graphics engine stuff done and the collision stuff in and have created my first "physics playground" test of my engine, and OMG, it is really frickin' good. I mean, it is amazingly good. Shockingly good. I can't imagine that I could have done this. I have stunned myself.

The working title of the game is "Lava Ball". It is part Labyrinth, part marble madness, part firey molten lava death. The game will feature my innovative WCP (Wicked Cool Perspective) technology and amazing 360 by 360 accelerometer controls and true all axes collision physics.

You ain't rolled a ball until you've rolled with Lava Ball.

Currently, I am working on the level editor, and adding a collision BSP so that the engine will smoothly support expansive levels. After that it is just the menu system and some cleanup.

I will eventually need some beta testers because I am currently only testing on a Droid.


Regards

And send me an email at czimmerm@exit4gaming.com if you are interested in participating in beta testing of this game and have a phone that has hardware acceleration for graphics and an accelerometer.

Thanks,

Beta Testers Desired

Postby seed » Thu May 13, 2010 3:40 pm

The Lava Ball Editor suite is complete! Development is now centered around fixing bugs and creating levels. This is a game you really want to keep your eyes out for. Beta testing will begin very soon.

If you are interested in beta testing Lava Ball, please contact me at czimmerm@exit4gaming.com. We are looking to beta test this on a variety of phones. The testing process should be pretty fun for all involved, including getting a first look at the game and providing feedback on levels and general playability.

I would like to get a nice list of testers together with a good mix of phones prior to starting the testing. So, please sign up early.

LavaBall is a accelerometer controlled game where you roll your ball through a 3D world collecting gems as you go. The game will feature full 360x360 accelerometer controls allowing you to tilt your phone to roll the ball on any surface in the game. Navigate ramps, tunnels, vertical spires, jumps, free falls, and blazing fast Sonic like tumbles, all while avoiding falling in the lava. Collect all the gems, and build your fortune.

Thanks,
Seed
