#NotGamesPost

Well ok then! Wasn't expecting much out of the Andor series. But the trailer certainly leaves a mark.. an impressive production for sure. If the actual show holds up?.... Disney already has a long history of messing up with only a few glimmers of hope here and there... Only time will tell.

Andor | Teaser Trailer


** Update: So watched the first episode.. not sure I'll watch the rest. Perhaps only for the visuals. The show didn't feel like Star Wars at all. No characters or plotlines to really care about. It wasn't bad.. just dull.. with sorta nice production design. Oh I guess it's back to waiting for Mando Season 3.
Kiddo's comment was: "Is this even Star Wars?!". Hit it perfectly.

DK Alpha release by Lasse Honnens & art by Flemming Schmidt.
Penguin with a Pumpgun

Inspecting the files It seems to be developed in Monogame (With it's XNA history). Haha.. actually first I thought it was an XNA project. XNA was discontinued by Mircosoft in 2013. But the Mac and Linux versions indicated something else was up. ;)
So it turned out to be Monogame. Not something we see often in DK.
Free open source multiplatform framework here
https://www.monogame.net/

Just gave it a spin.. it starts out brutally hard and nothing is explained. So be prepared for a few tries before completing the first level. A bit of onboarding the player a smoother difficulty curve would be recommended for future versions.
There are also numerous other issues.. so keep that in mind, it's still very early days for this project.

Oh and see you on friday! :)

At Spilbar 50! I'm giving a "talk" (Solodev Developer).. not really a talk per se. But something different.
Never really done something like this before so let's see how it goes. It was fun to make! :)

** All the tickets are gone now. Even the extra ones that was released a bit later.

Hi from Spilbar 50! (Unrelated)

3D Realms/Slipgate Ironworks (DK)

Announces their Tempest Rising RTS


Looks awesome!
I did think it was their other large project being announced. But clearly not. This is 3 years work and a 100 devs on it so far.
And has VERY clear Command & Conquer/Red Alert influence.

Incredible work in reality capture. The NeRF approach is already nearly antiquated.

They call this approach View Synthesis.

DK project Dead Pets Unleased has a Kickstarter.

The Kickstarer video presents it self well and the goal is set 'relativly' low (222,970DKK). I guess in theory the goal should not be too difficult to reach, there is plenty of time and much can happen. Reaching the goal is not something that will make a massive difference on the game and is probably more of a PR move. Ofcause a bit of extra money for projects is always nice.

Gave the demo a spin... I don't know. The art and music is well fitting and gives the project a personality. The gameplay and writing didn't really do anything for me, I was a bit bored honestly, but give it a spin and judge for yourself.



Image

Slight update. At time of writing the pledge size seems to have decreased dramatically, 4'ish days in. So it seems some harder legwork will be required to bring it to the goal.

If you are missing a band simulator game.. I can recommend Rock Star Ate My Hamster from 1988. Fire up the Amiga emulator! :)
