W.A.V.E

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

W.A.V.E robots are sent out to explore strange new lands, far from home. When they arrive, they connect via virtual reality to a human helper. You are that human!

First person VR is amazing, but it’s not the only thing you can do with a Rift. This game explores a 3rd person platformer using the touch controller for movement and aiming.

  • – Designed for (mostly) seated play.
  • – Requires an Oculus Rift with a single Touch controller.
  • – Adapts for left or right handers.
    • (Press the A or X button to choose in-game)
  • – Graphics mostly created in virtual reality, using SculptrVR.

Built for the Global Games Jame 2017, mostly just by me, in under 48 hours. The main robot and enemy models are by the amazing Aaron Hicks.

If you have the hardware, download to play for free!

Home Sheep Home 2: Steam

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

hsh2_steamOnce upon a time I made a cute browser game called Home Sheep Home for Aardman Animations. It was a surprise hit, so we built a sequel, Home Sheep Home 2: A Little Epic. We released this on the web in low-res episodes, and on iOS as an app, and as a glorious super-high-res packed-with-extras Windows desktop version.

But this was the little game that dreamt of being on Steam, the PC’s premier download platform. It’s taken years to get there, but finally it has made it!  And in style too, with tons of Steam achievements and lovely Steam cloud saves too. So what are you waiting for? Go and get it immediately! Especially if you enjoyed Thomas Was Alone which takes much of its gameplay mechanics from this game.

Championsheeps 2

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Compete in sporty sheepy challenges such as Hedgehog Bowling and Sty Diving in this huge update to the original Championsheeps suite of games via the BBC and Aardman Digital.

Play Championsheeps 2

This time around, I worked on the central hub of the project – the part that loads all the other games, keeps your score history and achievements, and so on. I also led the team technically, ensuring all the separate bits from the different developers all integrated and worked together in the end.

We went to town on the nice touches a little bit too, like the physically modelled washing lines and the insane number of new achievements. There’s lots of fun to be found here!

 

Gumball: Dino Donkey Dash

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

Gumball: Dino Donkey Dash is a game built with Aardman Digital for Cartoon Network to run alongside the popular kids show. Take control of Gumball and Darwin to steal Anais’ favourite toy back from Tina the dinosaur.

Play Gumball: Dino Donkey Dash.

All three games within the suite can be played alone or with a friend, at the same keyboard. There’s not enough two-player around-the-keyboard Flash games these days!

The first minigame is Sneak. You have to press the up/down keys as directed, in step with the symbols. Get it wrong and you’ll make more noise, and eventually wake up the sleeping dinosaur.

 

 

Beat the Sneak game, and you’ll move on to Poke. Use a long wobbly pole to tease the stuffed toy from Tina’s sleeping snuggle. Miss too many times, and you’ll inadvertently wake her up and incur her wrath…

 

 

So you’ve got the toy back, but Tina is chasing you through the junkyard where she lives. You’ll have to run and jump to avoid her, passing the donkey back and forth between the characters to escape. Survive the Catch game to get to the end.

 

This suit of three minigames was built to work in 15 separate languages simultaneously. You can actually switch between them dynamically in-game if you know the special cheat keys! Russian, Bulgarian and especially Arabic presented unique technical problems, with Flash not supporting right-to-left scripts very well (we weren’t using the new TLF capabilities due to their performance being terrible).

The translator supports progressive font fallback per textfield – so if the original font doesn’t contain the right characters it will be swapped with a similar looking one that includes more European accents and characters. If that still doesn’t support the right characters, it will be swapped again for Arial. The translator contains an embedded version of each language, which can be replaced by a loaded file at runtime. That can even be reloaded dynamically on a cheat-key. It will also auto-shrink fonts to fit in their given space, so text is never cropped unintentionally.
