this can't be done in 32k. :-)
Honestly guys, confess, where is the 1000Gbyte adatafile hidden?
just joking, this is gooooood. worth the rulez many times.

indeed. impressive stuff for the small size, although it's hard to control your ship.

The look is incredible, but imo it lacks the fun factor like in 'B-Clopd'. Probably an engine for an impressive intro ;)

unplayable but cool :)

the most impressive entry of mekka (along the winning amiga intro maybe)

resistance is futile.

Nothing to say more than : terrific.

hm... this certainly is an amazing piece of code, but unfortunately it doesn't work well as a game, and that's what this type of prod is (or should be) all about.
but then, i don't think that it's that far of from being a good game, if only the camera wouldn't move that unexpected and jerky, and maybe the controls could benefit from a little tweaking.
if you are able to fix this for a final release, i will certainly give this a thumbs up, so keep up the good work and finish this game as it deservse it :)

thanks for all the feedbacks! we'll release a final version with many more features, better gameplay and of course, network gaming. (it should be bigger than 32k though ;p) all the planned features are more or less ready but lack of time and more exactly size couldn't help us to include them in that version. about the gameplay, it's only a matter of training :))

Impressive graphic, but slow as hell and the fun factor is too low :(

I've just tested it during all the party.
I love it :)

Judged by the code: This rules!
Judged by the game: Nah. :(

But it's still very good and it deserved the first place.

Impressive for 32kb, but why isn't the camera more close to the spaceship? I can hardly play it well this way...

the game is currenty in puke-mode with the camera moving around and low framerate :) we'll fix this and a lot of other things.

btw. the record is 2'11 for 5 laps, beat us and win the virtual beer :)

quake32k ... next year maybe :)

It's really amazing

Cool thing. Not TOO amazing technically, though... hey, it's just a combination of the "Toasted" roller coaster, a heightfield landscape and some object/texture generation somewhere between 4k and 32k fashion...

... but the fact that someone finally did this is still impressive. Music's cool, too.

Now please fix the un-standable camera and the steering, and I'm happy. Until then - congrats :)

Looked very impressive but I couldn't play it, probably because my computer is too slow.

I thought it was alot more fun to play around with bob in mental excession with the keys and rolling into the water than playing this ;p

A big dissapointing since last year(s) the 32K game compo at mekka has produced acctually enjoyable games with good gfx and such now this crap:) i say "crap" since the 3d doesnt look good at all and the textures are very basic filters .. looks like textures who even dxm can do ;p and the controlling is non-existant.. not much to say about music either;)

ok.. as a 32K intro this was "ok" but since it was released as a game i cant find whats so good about it =)
adding the control system they had mustve taken 10minutes or less and if you shouldve keyframed it for a intro it wouldve taken an hour to look good ;p

thx for this beautyfull flame.

We were sure that soon or later we would have someone like you (stupid i mean;) posting his rage upon a "just for fun" production.

I hope you'll soon show us what you're able to do, and sincerely hope that next year you'll prove how clever and great coder you are in winning the MS 32k game compo with an asskickin' prod.

anyway, keep on flaming every prod you look, it's such a great attitude;))

cheers mate, and take care, too much stress make heart problems.

*HUG* ;)))

alkama, lame way of acknowleding your failure.
i may be stupid, but think again.. how stupid arent all those morons who says that a GAME who is completly unplayable "rulez" ? :)

alkama... i take this as you think that everyone should post "rulez" and "rocks" on dxm prods to?

*HUGS alkama BACK*

you all take it all much too seriously, what i mean is that there are ways to say things without being arrogant or hurting...

I'm not against bad comments, they are natural. It's just not in my behavior to post such comments. When i dislike sumthing, i prefer to keep it for me, it's just a state of mind. I think that say what you like is important for the ppl you greet in doing that, wereas flaming is nothing else than destructive. I dont force anyone to act like i do, but huh, dont expect to have respect when you never give some...

Sometime, I feel quite pissed to see some ppl posting bad comments again and again, in every prod I browse...

now the discution is closed...

act as you like ;)

I'm still amazed =)

Really amazing, but I can't control my ship (so it's not a game for me).

heh, I managed to turn my ship 180 degrees and run backwards... amazing in 32k.
Good prod for 32k ya ;)..
Hum too hard to control coz the camera don't always correctly follow the ship..
Although the control sux a bit, but the rest is impressive
rulez added on the 2003-01-21 20:07:59 by shash shash
hard to play due to a false camera
ugly textures
Really impressive, but somtimes kinda unplayable. It really depends on the PC you are using

A worthy 32k game compo winner at last years MS. Looked great on the big screen. On the other hand, its gameplay isn't much good. :)

this would have been a thumb up, if it wasnt for the fact that the camera was utterly retarded(as in, fixed to follow the track and not the ship you are controlling)..

No thumb!?

I remember playing this a long time ago. With higher res textures it wouldn't look that bad nowadays. The lightflare is still cool.

Someone should bring back the one and only 32kb gamedev compo!
rulez added on the 2011-07-05 23:39:04 by xernobyl xernobyl
I wish some of these compo games would get developed & fleshed out more after the compo. This is great for 32k - especially the track/world design - but needs so much more polish to be anything more than a techdemo. I would love to play a full-featured Scene-ish wipeout clone.
