Interstellar Marines’ E3 Indie Madness

Interstellar Marines is an indie game project from Zero Point Software studio, based in Copenhagen. More precisely, a “AAA indie game project”, meaning they have the ambitious objective to reach the level of quality of a AAA game relying only on the gamers community support and donations.

It’s a huge challenge but one thing is for sure: they know how to handle it!

Take a look at their latest trailer:

Now you think “arf, just another soulless FPS in development, lets go back to COD13…” and to you I say “N O P E!” (but that’s not just Chuck Testa), it is more than just another FPS.

You heard them, they want to make it the most realistic FPS in the freaking cosmos! Their work is especially oriented on sound propagation, ambient lighting and control feedback. And believe me, they are doing an amazing work.

Ok, you don’t trust me? Well on the occasion of this year’s E3, they decided to give free access to their multiplayer prototype called “Deadlock”. And if that’s not enough to impress you, they also give a 50% discount on their pre-orders!

During the week of E3 2012 we’ve decided to open the doors to our multiplayer game called Deadlock, which is currently in development and updated regularly.

We’re doing this because we believe being completely open with our development ultimately will make for a better game.

Being Indie means there’s only you and us – no publishers. We’re humbly relying on your courageous support to help us make this happen.

If our project captures your imagination, you can get unlimited access, support the further development and save 50% by pre-ordering during the INDIE MADNESS week.

Thanks for your support!

Take 10 minutes of your time to test it once back home with a good earphone plugged in and you’ll know what I’m talking about…

Anyway, why do I talk about it here? Because it’s an indie project worth supporting and they are doing all this using Unity! Another proof that Unity is amazing not just for prototyping and mini puzzle/brick games ^^’

PS: if you read this post too late (after the E3 free access period), you can still try for free the Bull’s eye demo which is pretty addictive and gives a good idea of the look and feel of the game.

Secure your Unity3D web applications

One of the uncountable advantages of Unity3D is the ease to deploy and host web applications.

The counter part of it is the ease to find and copy your web application files and host it somewhere else…

Tom Higgins from Unity, is talking about it in this “Unite 07 Dev for Web” video (shift to the 18th minute if you want to skip the general web development discussion).

So here’s a little script implementing his first recommendation. It allows you to define the authorized “contexts” (context = application absolute URL + unity3d file relative path) for your application so that no one but you will be able to host and run it. As soon as the script detects an unauthorized context, it will load the scene you specified.

You’ll find the source code below. Please comment if you spot anything unoptimized/bugged/uggly 🙂

Kuta is on Kongregate.com!

I recently registered an account on Kongregate.com and uploaded the early verison of Kuta.

It’s playable here : http://www.kongregate.com/games/GFX47/kuta

I was pretty surprised to see it has been played more than 4000 times in less than 5 days! Which is pretty encouraging and motivating 🙂

Players’ feedbacks were very interesting and I updated the game with there most wanted features (in-game back to menu button, shorter brick disappearance and bug fix on score submission).

Unpacking my stuff

How good it feels to have my own place 🙂 (for those who didn’t follow the story, I moved from my old wp.com hosted blog to this one, on my own domain and that is cooler than Fonzie)

I hope you’ll enjoy it as I do! Now I’ll be able to add more plugins (unity web players, etc) and customize the whole site with flowers, stars, flying hearts around the mouse cursor and Justin Bieber/lolcats backgrounds.

Lovely <3

PS: links categories are pretty messy (damn wp blogroll importer) but I’ll try to fix it this week…
