Back in 2007 I helped work on a game called Solitude, which won ModDB’s Top 100 Mods of the Year in 2008 and Top 100 Indie Games of the Year in 2009. It was basically Halo for the PSP.
A few fans of Solitude are now part of our community for iSlayer, and have requested that I remake my most popular Solitude map for iSlayer. I threw together a little something, and it ended up being way better than the original, if I do say so myself.
Here is a 360 degree tour of the new Narrowed with the original ambient music and sounds that I composed/created for the game. Enjoy!
One new media form that goes hand-in-hand with VR is 360 degree video. I’ve recently figured out how to record 360 degree footage of games that I make or help make, so here was my first ever shot– the main menu of iSlayer, a game that I’ve been helping work on.
In our new VRMMORPG, we are beginning to test gunplay. While starting to get the guns in order, my programmer asked me to put together a sandbox testing area for guns. I thought to myself, “What has the best, most balanced gunplay in video games?” Of course, the answer is Halo so I dug up some old Halo 2 assets (the multiplayer level Coagulation, some gun models, and of course the Master Chief player model) and began testing. So far, the guns seem to work pretty well in the Portara engine, but there’s still a LOT of work to be done. It’s very promising to see Halo 2 content running without lag on an iPhone with online multiplayer! Here’s hoping for a Halloween release!*
