To quote: Here is another updated version of They Do Not Die. This new update Most notably features destructible walls and the ability to save the game state. Game saves are fairly large and consequently rather slow to create and load but that will improve over time.

I’m still undecided about what the subtitle should be so keep posting any ideas you have. Right now I’m leaning towards going with Collateral Damage (suggested by Griffunt) or Life After Death (suggested by Annelies)

On a less obviously related subject does anybody know how to go about measuring the passage of time with millisecond precision (or near enough to it for it to be usable when calculating the frame rate) when developing for PS3 with PSL1GHT?

What has changed:

  • You can save the game at any time and obviously also load that save.
  • The on screen text now scales so it no longer fills an overly large portion of the screen at low resolution.
  • In addition to your gun you now have a rocket launcher.
  • Rockets explode when they are shot, hit a person or hit a wall.
  • Explosions destroy walls, push people back and hurt people.
  • You can now run which consumes energy.
  • Shooting momentarily prevents energy from regenerating.
  • If you try to consume energy when you have none left then you will instead lose health.
  • The speed that your health regenerates at directly correlates to how much energy you have.
  • The screen (specifically the edges of it) turn red when you are low on health.
  • The world is more densely populated.

PS3 controls:

  • Left analog stick = Move
  • Right analog stick = Aim
  • L1 = Shoot the rocket launcher
  • R1 = Shoot the gun
  • L3 = Run
  • Select = Save
  • Start = Load

Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his homebrew game They Do Not Die 2 to version 0.8 for Windows, Wii and the PS3 console.

Below are the changes from his blog, as follows: Here is a small update for They Do Not Die 2 along with its first Windows release.

I've added blood and corpses. On Wii and PS3 they quickly shrink until they disappear but on Windows they fade instead of shrink (which I think looks a lot better) and there can be more of them in the game world at a time which means that they disappear more slowly.

I've also made a handful of minor and most likely unnoticeable changes (mostly related to city generation).

Windows controls:

  • WASD = Move
  • Mouse cursor = Aim
  • Right mouse button = Fire the rocket launcher
  • Left mouse button = Fire the machine gun
  • Left shift = Run
  • Space = Pause

Wii controls:

  • Analog stick = Move
  • Pointer = Aim
  • Left = Fire the rocket launcher
  • Down = Fire the machine gun
  • Right = Fire the shotgun
  • A = Run
  • B = Fire the machine gun
  • Plus = Pause
  • Minus = Pause

PS3 controls:

  • Left analog stick = Move
  • Right analog stick = Aim
  • L1 = Fire the rocket launcher
  • R1 = Fire the machine gun
  • L2 = Fire the shotgun
  • L3 = Run
  • Start = Pause

How awesome would it be if you can play this game on Xlink Kai using a LAN option.

I'm just starting to wonder when he is going to make a 1st person game (or something of the such) because I think he is fully capable of doing so. Thanks for the update.
Well it would take him a lot of work but it would be awesome if he could pull it off.

This guy is amazing at making games. I'm just starting to wonder when he is going to make a 1st person game (or something of the such) because I think he is fully capable of doing so. Thanks for the update.
