Time Frack 3D v0.1 – Wii

February 8, 2013

Remember that thing I posted a screenshot of back when I first showed off Hero City 2? I was going to submit both of them to the same competition but then only delivered on hero City 2? Well I started working on it again!

So here is the first playable build of Time Frack 3D for Wii!

You can walk, run, crouch, jump, grab onto ledges and most importantly you can slow down or even rewind time.

A preview of upcoming homebrew

April 1, 2012

This year’s Nintendomax Wii Dev Competition ends in a couple months and I’m working on two games for it. Neither of them are anywhere near to completion and I want to get more done before I start releasing releasing playable beta versions. But I’m really excited about both of them and I thought it would be cool to show a little preview so here are a few screenshots.

The first game is Hero City 2. It’s an open world game like it’s predecessor but I’m hoping to get more done this time in terms of gameplay. On the technical side it’s already vastly superior. The city is being generated in a way that uses as few polygons as possible without sacrificing anything so now you can have the entire game world on screen at the same time (there are no more disappearing buildings). Even enemies can be seen from all the way across the city. There are lots of other nice touches like drop shadows that split apart to adjust to the height of the ground. Now there is lighting for the environment. Even the collision system is more efficient and now allows for enemies to be on roof tops. The art style for the characters has changed too with the once blocky people being replaced with more detailed models that all have a nice comic book style / cell shaded outline.


The other game is Time Frack 3D. It’s a third person shooter with the ability to slow down and even reverse time. I’m pretty sure that it’s also the first Wii game I’ve made that has real time lighting. But it isn’t in any way intended to imitate real world lighting. Instead the people and anything else that can be moved has this glow around their edge as if they are being lit from behind or like the camera is somehow projecting darkness which I just think looks incredibly cool. I’m also doing some stuff differently with this that should help the character animation turn out better then it has in some of my past projects.


Before you ask why it has 3D at the end of the title it’s to help differentiate it from the other one. I’m planning to make/remake a 2D version of Time Frack that will hopefully show up on multiple platforms but I’m considering that less of a priority then Time Frack 3D and it likely won’t be done in time or made for the competition.


Time Frack Reupload

November 14, 2011

This is something that I actually made and posted ages ago. But the link has since died so I figured I would re upload it. Replaying it now it’s actually a lot less impressive then I remember it being.

I’ve included every version of it along with source code. There is also an early build of a sequel (that I had completely forgotten about) which seems to effectively be the same game in a larger environment and was apparently planned to be titled Time Frack: Paradox. Both where made with DarkGDK.

For a brief instant I was considering adding time controls to that still nameless thing that I have been working on and posting about for the last week and making that into the new Time Frack. That is actually why I dug this up. But I’ve decided against it.

TimeFrack: Now with injury, death and animation

October 31, 2009

The game is probably more obviously jankie then ever but you can consider it (or more specifically its current incarnation) complete. I raised the enemy count to 50 and they now move around. Both you and they can now be hit by blasts. When they get shot 10 times they die and when you get shot 20 times you die. There is also now some minor amount of animation for the enemies (they twitch when they get shot and lie down when they die) and comparatively better but still noticeably incomplete animation for you. You can now crouch with the Ctrl key. The first person camera takes your animation into account and follows your head. Thats all for now. Bye.
