  1. Not really. For Trashmania: Classic, I just took the original batari Basic source code and converted it into UnityScript, changed a few lines to accomodate for Unity's sprite system, audio, etc. I wrote that game when I was 13-14, so the code was very simple and mostly consisted of if-then statements. I began doing the same for Trashmania: Remix, but that game's code is so convoluted (jumps all over the place, littered with inline assembly, etc.) that I gave up and decided to re-write it from scratch whilst still maintaining very close accuracy to the original.
  2. https://vine.co/v/Oz26lT5bE1m Additional video of the enhanced version of Trashmania: Classic; the art design in this version will be a hybrid of Atari 2600 visuals and realistic effects such as the water. There's more to it that I'll show in the future.

      I have trashmania on my ouya, no Wii u tho :/ hmm maybe I should hook the ouya back up haven't in months

  3. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/08/trashmania_trilogy_shooting_for_a_q1_2015_release_on_the_wii_u_eshop Yup guys, I'm still doing game development and stuff! This is a collection for the Wii U which includes all three Trashmania games (the first two being Atari 2600 homebrew games and the third being an OUYA game) both in their original forms as well as updated versions that take advantage of the Wii U's unique capabilities. Here's some tech demo videos showcasing each game and some of things added in their enhanced forms.

  4. Gee, been awhile since I've logged into this place! Guess I should show you guys a little something that I've been working on over the past few months: Trashmania: After Dark (you'll need to install the Unity Web Player Plug-In). There's also a version for the OUYA which is on that system's marketplace right now. I figured you guys would be mildly interested in seeing this since it's based on two Atari 2600 homebrew games I made a few years ago, Trashmania and Trashmania: Remix. I know some people here liked them at the time (Remix in particular). I'd hate to say I've "moved on" from making Atari 2600 homebrews, but I guess that's sorta what happened after making TM:Remix. My ideas got very artsy, ambitious and just beyond what the hardware was capable of. I'd love to go back and make another homebrew game someday, though! Until then, I hope you all enjoy this current project on mine. It's still being updated, and more stages+features are planned for future updates. Have fun!
  5. Despite having owned my 2600 for about 5 years now, I just now got a pair of Driving Controllers yesterday... Indy 500, we meet at last!

      That was actually the game that really turned me on to the 2600 when I was a kid. Great fun.

      theres a hack with new tracks.

  6. Got this game on launch day, and instantly fell in love as soon as I started playing it. By the time I beat the final boss(es), the final flagpole appearing, and the credits beginning to roll (with that incredible music)... I came out of the experience completely shaken up... but in a good/happy way. It was the first time in years I had a feeling quite like it, let alone from a video game. The folks at Nintendo EAD know what their doing almost too well. As a game developer myself, it leaves me stunned and without words. Every time I got stuck on a level, I didn't cry out in anger like so many games have done, but rather I was like "Oh no! No! That did NOT just happen!" in a laughing/joking manner with each moment I lost a life... and I kept going. Every level was different enough to where I kept wanting to see what would come next. The artwork is gorgeous and full of vibrance and color, the soundtrack fits Mario so well, and the gameplay and level design are simply perfect. Aside from a couple of times I made bad jumps due to bad depth perception (I kinda wish I could play this game in 3D, as that helped a lot in 3D Land), I have no complaints about anything. 10/10. Would play again.
  7. Hey boys and girls... guess who's back [again (again)]? MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      "The fun is back! Oh yes siree!"

  8. Yeah, this is just a cheapie kiddie version of the 3DS. I'm sure Ninty made this thing partly as a response to more and more kids getting tablets to play games on, and $130 is a very good price when compared to all those android tablets aimed at that age range.
  9. We currently aren't planning to release it on other platforms, at least not in the near future. We don't want to shoehorn the game onto a button-less mobile phone or tablet, and porting the game over to the Wii U, PS4, etc. is still out of our reach for now (the porting job itself will be easy since we made the game in Unity3D, but licensing costs and such are still high). Besides, we have faith in the little silver box. She just needs more time. Also, if this isn't a major exclusive, I don't know what is: http://www.huffingto..._n_3762329.html
  10. $100,000, not $10,000. From their official site: "Unity Free, which include the free platform add-on products, may not be licensed or used by a commercial entity with annual gross revenues (based on prior fiscal year) in excess of US$100,000, or by an educational, academic, non-profit or government entity with a total annual budget for the entire entity (based on prior fiscal year) in excess of US$100,000." That might be awhile, though.
  11. Of course! Both the free and paid versions will work offline! An internet connection is required to initially purchase the full game, but after that one-time purchase you won't need an internet connection at anytime. It's gone great! Some minor set up quirks to get it working on the OUYA (mostly if you'll be doing in-app purchases), but I have little to no complaints with anything about Unity. I haven't heard anything negative about the artwork; most of the comments I've gotten have been "it looks pretty good!" or "it reminds me of when I drew stuff in middle school" (in a good way).
  12. http://ouyaforum.com...na-Team-Kakumei First officially released game from Team Kakumei (which consists of me and a few other members). Glad to finally see this game on the OUYA marketplace! Here's a video of me showing an older build of the game; we should have some video footage of the current build on YouTube sometime in the near future: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpYe6grq1xg
