Revolt gets Featured!


And yes Bryan, I have 43 updates waiting. :P

More Review Goodness

http://appadvice.com/appnn/2010/11/review-revolt/

"Revolt pushes the bounds of the iOS platform especially as to what to expect from dual stick shooters. The game has a brilliant game design with such complex visuals and environment design. The complex level layouts are a true achievement giving you action and surprise with a solid story.

Revolt is a must buy for $1.99 that is easily the best dual stick shooter, and one of the best games to date."

Revolt already in Action Top 25!

1.1 Gameplay Video


Here's a look at some kickass play by myself in the new Lights Out Mode on Survival. This was recorded off the PC build and there's some shader and UI issues because the game is coded for the iphone, so just ignore that stuff. Apologies for the crappy quality. Will upload a better one once I work out the exact compression to stay under the 100mb limit.

There's no music on the PC build either so you get to hear my Pandora playlist in the background. Keep an eye out for some precision rocket launcher action. :)

'Revolt, an awesome new dual-stick shooter from Kristopher Peterson and Jaap Kreijkamp, is now available from the app store. Set in a futuristic, technocratic society where man has been practically wiped out by machines, there remains one man whose fight-or-flight response doesn’t recognize the latter as an option.'

Revolt is Beta!

That's right folks, as of today Revolt is feature complete and beginning the final round of testing before submission! There were a few testers that have fallen to the merciless violence of the Technocracy's hordes, and so we're looking for some fresh blood to take up resistance and finish the fight to unsure a strong victory. Candidates who have applied previously and haven't been chosen yet are encouraged to send their information again. Those with some serious time on their hands and are able to put in some hardcore hours kicking robot ass are preferred at this point, as we try to nail down progression and story mode balance which requires multiple play throughs as we go in and adjust the final values.

To apply, send an email to graphicalgeek@yahoo.com with your UDID, device information, your dual stick shooter skill level, and about how much time you have in the next 2 weeks to play.

Update

Things have slowed down a bit here but they are still moving. We've got all the story elements integrated into the game now and have the boss battle up and running. Dynamic music fading is in and all the Open Feint Achievements are there, 20 of them. The basic gameplay is all done and enemy balance just needs to be tweaked. Hopefully a few things will get sorted out around here and then we'll open the game back up to testers for the final push.

Nearly Free Shadows

Click the image for animation. Might not display correctly in Chrome.

I've been wanting levels shadows ever since I started adding blob shadows to all the objects, but didn't think of this solution until just now. This method uses vertex colors and vertex alpha so there's no texture used. I simply take the floor and cut out all the squares that are not touching any walls, and then reduce vertices. After that I select all the edge vertices and then just give them a 0% opacity and make them all gray in vertex color. In the editor I just apply a Mulitply material that all my other shadows use so they will all batch together requiring no extra draw calls.

This method probably wouldn't work so well if you weren't using grid built geometry but a lot of games do.
