Report article RSS Feed SickBrick - Graphics scalability, nVidia Physix, port to NeoAxis 1.0,...

Showing off the low, mid, and high graphics options, the game is now using nVidia Physx instead of ODE physics, and it's been ported to the newest version of NeoAxis, more news inside.

  • Here's the graphics scalability comparison. High, Mid and Low settings respectively. Notice the fps counter in the upper left corner.
    The game can be played on anything from a netbook on low settings to running at 80fps on a mid range PC on high settings.

High (dynamic PSSM shadows, bloom, foliage, normal maps)

Medium (foliage, normal maps)

Low

  • I've switched from ODE physics to nVidia Physx, brushing out the differences now, quite a tedious business :D
  • Ivan, the main man developing NeoAxis, has updated it to 1.0, so I'm in the process of updating SickBrick to it also. Bugs all around.
  • I've updated the enemies. Every type of enemy now shoots unique bullets, grenades, shells, etc.
  • The enemy turrets are now functional. They spice up the action nicely :D
  • I began work on the last two levels of the game. The final boss fight is going to be epic B)

Next up: Sound effects, speech, music, font, logs, animations,... anyways a lot of work still ahead.
Thanks for reading. Hope you'll get to play SickBrick soon. If you can't wait, download the pre alpha demo and get a small taste of what this game will be.

While an odd looking little game, I have to applaud the fact you're making a 3D game, relatively, on your own.

Would love to be able to pull that off.

Yep, pretty odd :D, but it actually has a pretty good story, especialy when considering video game stories and it's really fun to play, which I think is the most important thing in a game.

Very nice looking design!

I must say that looking at the small screenshots, the low one looks most playable (easy to see, understand and analyze the entire scene)

Looks darker when I capture a screenshot. It's a pretty bright game actually.

Physx = bad idea, going back to ODE :D
