Clunking ungracefully through the stars, Old Jolty has now made its way to Windows Phone! Ultra special thanks to the organisers and staff of the UK’s Largest Unity Porting Event for providing the software and hardware which made this possible.
The windows phone version contains some slight graphical improvements that’ll make their way to the iOS version eventually.(I’ve got some other improvements for it planned but i’m holding back to see if I get some feedback from this version I can act on first.)
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and i’m wishing you all a Happy New Year!
Its finally up! (Well technically its been up since the 15th.) Now squidly adventures, involving perhaps an unparalleled amount of turning around in circles, are available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The last hope for humanity lies with the tired and rusting space freighter Old Jolty; decommissioned long ago but haphazardly brought back to life for one final journey. She has no weapons and she can’t turn left, but she must save the cosmos!
As you may have noticed, its now time to bring myself to the bit of this cycle i’ve been dreading the most, the shameless advertising! On that note any form of retweets, likes, reviews or brief mentions would be incredibly welcome ^^.
Old Jolty has been sent off to Apple for review; with a little luck it’ll be in the store in four or so days, though it could be almost two weeks.
In the meantime I thought I’d ramble a little about a curious game idea I’ve had. Though I’m really not sure to the legality of it so do chip in if you have an opinion.
Basically the idea revolves around taking an old B-Movie, which is currently in the public domain, for example Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet, and essentially turning it into an extremely cheesy FMV adventure game. So a comedy adventure game spaced between film footage, playing on the so bad it’s good angle of both old B-Movies and FMV games.
It could be an iPad game, though it might be quite costly in hard drive space if it contains a lot of film footage. But I imagine with enough compression and editing that could be worked around. However I’m still not 100% certain on the legality, though films in the public domain supposedly have no copyright I’m sure there could be other compromising factors. For instance Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet is a re-edited/ plagiarized version of the Russian movie “Planet of Storms”, which might not be in the public domain.
Anyway, I thought I’d throw that out there. I have something completely different planned for my next game, which I’ll share in due time after I’m done checking its viable and have some pretty screenshots.
