New Homebrew Game for Atari Jaguar NEON CENTIPEDEZ

Recommended Posts

Here is an update on the project:

 

* Shooting for a Christmas 2016 release

* the game will be a Centipede clone for the Jaguar with a very different style of neon graphics.

* It will be a CARTRIDGE RELEASE, however a Jaguar CD release is also being considered. (this will depend on size of either 2MB or 4MB) We are leaning towards cartridge only

* This will be a full release with box and instructions.

* There are currently 2 people working on the project me as the main coder and an art director and graphic design major.

* The first 20 copies will roll out at $79.99 in early December. after that there will be additional runs of 20 per demand

* We have more than 1 source to do the PCB boards (One of them is well known in the Jaguar scene now)

* We are considering doing the cartridge shells in different neon colors such as bright (XBOX like) green, pink, purple and electric blue This will be achieved through using a 3D printer

 

More details will be provided as we progress on this exciting project!

Yeah, there again cartridge only. Neon colored ones. Probably no disk release

 

EDIT---- Oh I see what you are saying. You know too much.. thats scary. Thats a conversation for me and Nick only. But I like the guy and trust him with what he will do. And he hasn't agreed to anything yet. So there. Well since that cat is out of the bag I might as well say the other person who was to make the boards is Bruce from B&C. You guys really know too much too soon. Thats concerning. : /

About the logo: Centipede 2000 would have been just fine, but Neon CENTIPEDEZ is soooo much more ghettofabulous and appropriate for these times. :lol:

 

Ghettofabulous wasn't what we were aiming for, but i'm going to take that as a compliment. Besides we can't claim rights to Centipede 2000 and since there was actually a Centipede 2000 in development at one time it just wouldn't be an appropriate name. Edited by Jeffrey_Bones

The Neon CENTIPEDEZ dev team just got a new member, so we now have 3 people working on the project. He is a 3d artist and some of his best work can be seen here ----> http://www.dkc-atlas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1688

 

 

Edit------> still looking for a chip music composer. If anybody is interested in helping us out with some music please PM me. Thanks

Here is a small concept drawing we submitted to our 3D modeler, Chris Sholsser. Ignore the spyder character that concept is garbage. We are coming up with something different for that character. The Centipede the Pscho Delik Shroom and the Fuji launcher will look something similar to this. I didnt want to release any sketches just yet but I thought I would so you guys can see just how good our modeler is. After he finishes up the models I will share the renders of the characters and then a .bmp of the actual sprites made from the renders that will be displayed on the Jaguar. I just really wanted you guys to see the transition from concept to sprite. ;)

 

Edit---- right now we are using 7800 ripped sprites as place holder graphics, but every single sprite in the game will be custom graphics created by us. The other thing I can tell you is the centipede will fluctuate, and glow kind of like a walking VLM. Its hard to describe what we are hoping to achieve but all will see soon enough. Thanks for all the support!!!!

How's the early December release looking?

Not going to happen I'm afraid. Making a Jaguar game is way harder than I thought. It's still happening though. I will let everybody know when.

And here is a concept video made on the PC. This is NOT running on Jaguar hardware and it is NOT the game. I just wanted to show the concept and help paint a clearer picture in everyone's head of what im shooting for with Neon Centipedez. I used an old Centipede WIP and threw the Jaguar sprites in there along with unused T2K music just to help get a feel of what it will look like. it is a buggy mess

From a sketch drawing to a 3D model. This will be the model shown in the manual, on the label and box art! My 3D artist Chris Shlosser has done a pretty good job representing a neon centipede. I knew he would come through in the end. He also helped me make a Squawks model for my 3D DKC game last year. He is a great guy and one hell of an artist!post-45896-0-00524100-1481429536_thumb.png

Looking great will it feature as part of the in game art too (menu screens etc.)?

Yes! This render will also be featured on the title screen! Perhaps in other menu type screens as well. He is also attempting to do a Neon Spyder for the box art as well! Should be seeing that one soon!
