Woohoo! 0.8.2 Free. How about we go Woohoo! Live!?

over 7 years ago in Game and WooHoo Drive! by matt

As promised earlier today, Woohoo! is now free to play for everyone. You can still donate if you wish ;)

It’s also worth mentioning that we’re planning to release Woohoo in html5 canvas some time later. Will it be the same? No. We have a few ideas on our minds that in theory at least sound as good alternatives to what’s out there on the market already. Stay tuned ;)

Woohoo Drive! 0.7.3 beta released!

over 8 years ago in Game and WooHoo Drive! by matt

We’re extremelly excited to announce the first official release of Woohoo Drive!

Woohoo Drive! is a great top-down racing game where you drive your space rig using your mouse or tablet only. The point is to get from point A to point B as fast as you can. Your highscores are then sent to the online scoreboard and you get ranked against other players! Whether you’re bored sitting in an office or looking for a fun game to chill you out, Woohoo Drive is a perfect match! For more info you can visit the about section.

We’ve put quite some effort to get with Woohoo that far and as indie developers we don’t ask for much in return! You can download Woohoo! for free, both for Linux and Windows. If you like the game and want to see it developing further, we really encourage you to register your copy of Woohoo! for a symbolic $5. You can have a look at a draft sketch of what we’re planning to implement in the about section.

Also, we heavily rely on the word of mouth as one of the means for spreading Woohoo Drive! across the universe so if you can please share this game with your friends that would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Everyone enjoy a free slice of Woohoo! The tab is all on us!

Looking forward to hearing some feedback from you and hopefully some registrations, too!

Warp Speed second alpha release and a new video!

over 8 years ago in Game and Warp Speed by matt

Howdy!

Warp Speed gets its second pre-alpha release! We also have a video with the ingame footage and badass killer voice of mine for you!

Apologies for such a huge gap in the updates! We had to shut up for a while and concentrate on work. Focused as never before we’ve generated such a huge gap between the last release and this one that it literally got beyond our comprehension! BTW. This update was originally scheduled for the end of August:P

We’ve got an update on everything, textures, gfx, engine, EVERYTHING! I won’t be spamming to much and will leave you with the real stuff to play with:

Video

100% of the ingame footage, no video fireworks yet, includes a few useful comments of mine.

 

A few ingame screens

There wasn’t much to do for you in the previous release, this time there’s a couple of weapons to play with, don’t miss the trickjumping part in the video!

This is a general update, physics is still not perfect, nothing really is, WE WANT YOUR INPUT! CMON! Leave some critique comments!

Progress update

over 8 years ago in Game and Warp Speed by matt

Howdy!

Long time no see! Well, we’ve been working hard day and night for the last couple of weeks. Not too much on Warp Speed though as the vast amount of our time was consumed by web development but here I am anyway giving you another insight into what’s going on behind Warp Speed scenes!

Today I have a couple of screenshots to show, they may seem like not much but there’s quite a big chunk of progress behind their innocent faces.

First of all – I messed around with Warp Speed logo and mocked a new loading screen. Remember the old one? Well, probably not. Anyway, in the process I discovered a couple useful ways of creating new materials. Lucky bonus!;)

Ingame screenies:

Yes! Some textures at last. And these are pretty official. Note they are only base textures that will be used later on in the process for creating more complex ones! What do you think?

The small toothy things in the background are saw blades. They don’t do any harm to the dude, we invented them only for entertaining purpouses and to check out how convenient shooting at moving targets is. The verdict? Pretty convenient, that’s for sure!

Next image shows how hitscan weapons will most likely work in Warp Speed. Hitscan weapons are weapons that hit the target immediately after you shot them. Don’t know how it’s going to work out in practice but we’re definitely going to give it a try.

We’re working on a promotional video, a little bit trailer-like but since we unfortunately don’t have enough content to show to call it a proper trailer, let’s just assume it’s a promotional/entertaining video. The main purpouse of it is for me to get more convenient with video editing stuff so that we can share something really really mindblowing with you in the future! How noble!

I’ll finish here without giving out anything else, now it’s your turn to leave some comments!;) Cheers and thanks for keeping track of our progress!
