Konami's Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone Infests PSN Today

250°
149w ago - Konami Associate Brand Manager Pearl Lu has announced that Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone infests PSN today with details below.

To quote: I wanted to let you know that [Register or Login to view links] will be available on PSN later today! Now for those of you who played the first Zombie Apocalypse (released in 2009) welcome back to Konami's take on the world of the undead.

For those of you who are new to this whole experience, I'm here to give you a few brief and yet thoroughly engrossing (emphasis on "gross") tips about a world that's near and dear to my heart.

At its core, the game is an overhead twin stick shooter which places a focus on more of a fast-paced arcade type feel. You'll deal with thousands of zombies throughout the game, all of which are trying their absolute hardest to eat your brain and steal your soul.

That's the bad news. Your job is to use every arsenal at your disposal to fend off the zombie wave and get the hell off this godforsaken Canadian island.

Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone was developed by our good friends at [Register or Login to view links]. Believe me when I say, Backbone and I are proud of the work we've done on this little game so please do me a...

To quote: Here is another update to They Do Not Die 2.

I had added corpses and blood but I’ve removed them because I don’t know how to make them fade away progressively and I find it extremely distracting seeing them just disappear instantly (for performance reasons there needs to be a limit on how many can exist at any given time).

If anyone knows how to go about doing that I would greatly appreciate an example of it. Basically what I’m looking for is the PSL1GHT equivalent of glColor4f. I assume the answer involves shaders which I am sadly fairly ignorant about making and using.

Notable changes:

  • Added two player co-op play (shared screen).
  • There are now cars and boxes scattered around the city.
  • Data is stored more efficiently in game saves and as a result of that saving and loading is faster.
  • The shotgun is more powerful.

PS3 controls:

  • Left analog stick = Move
  • Right analog stick = Aim
  • L1 = Fire the...

They Do Not Die 2 v0.3 PS3 Homebrew Game Update Arrives

700°
158w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his homebrew game They Do Not Die 2 to v0.3 for PS3 Custom Firmware and JailBreak users.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

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.
