iPad: My Giants - Your Epic Neighborhood War with Giant Monsters/Robots!

02-11-2012, 02:47 PM
It's been a while since our last update. We've been busy refactoring all the networking codes and migrating the project to uLink. Here's a video of the current state of the game. We are holding back on migrating art assets until later so it doesn't look as good as previous versions yet, but now we have the giants all synchronized!

Robot vs Rock

For the past few weeks we’ve been working on adding a second Giant, Nick the Robot, into the game. The Robot Giant is similar to the Engineer in Team Fortress, someone who can build turrets! (55 sec mark on the video) The turret detects enemy within range, and rotates to the target and starts shooting. In this video, you can see how it works, as well as the chaotic action that can occur between Giants from different teams. I was running all three games (server, player 1, player 2) on my laptop so the game gets a bit laggy sometimes which caused synchronization issues – something we continue to optimize. Also the 3D model for the Robot giant is still in development, so we are currently borrowing Lerp from the Unity3D tutorial for prototyping.

Not exactly in-game screenshots, but we are toying with the idea of creating a comic strip series to go with the game. Or use them in cut-scenes somewhere. What do you guys think of this manga style?

I love the manga-styled art, and think that would great to to use in cut-scenes and/or as a comic, as you mentioned. The production videos have been great to view to follow the game's progress. I'm really excited about this title, and hope it continues to progress well and quickly; needless to say, I can't wait to play it!
