Ludum Dare 27 Entry: Love Your Pets!

                  

When a Captains dream of playing fetch is crushed by Xenomorphs in the bulkheads of the SCC-Benjamin, there is only one thing left for him to do: make the rescue quota and get the hell off this boat! 

I didn’t quite manage to finish as much as I would’ve liked, but it was entertaining to make nonetheless. I hope you enjoy playing it! 

Required: Java 6+, OpenGL. Tested on Windows only, might work on other platforms as well.

LD27 Warmup Entry: Dubstep Hairdresser

Thought I’d have some fun and post a little warmup entry this LD.
Can you use this glorious toy to create and share the wonderful hairdo’s from your dreams, all while the beat drops? Yes you can! Probably. I wouldn’t recommend it.

This piece of sillyness cost me a couple of hours to make, reusing parts of Mini LD 43 Entry: Dreamcake Rescue. Pretty happy how the hair mechanics turned out, didn’t think some ad-hoc physics would work  so well.

Sennheiser USB headset under Windows 7

I had some trouble getting my Sennheiser USB headset to work under Windows 7. Some of the headsets are incompatible with Vista (and Windows 7), but luckily can be upgraded.

How I got it to work:

  1. Plug your headset into a XP or Vista PC. The upgrading process won’t work under Windows 7.
  2. Download firmware upgrade.
  3. Run the downloaded executable. It will install a temporary driver, and upgrade the firmware on your headset.
  4. Done! Plug it into your Windows 7 machine.

Redblade and godecktyourself.com progression

Even with a couple of short outages traffic is slowly picking up for godeckyourself.com. Time to add some additional languages! I’d like to encourage people to share and increase community as well; everyone seems reluctant to click the ‘share’ button.

On a different note, vacation is coming up in two weeks, which should hopefully give me enough time to get Redblade CG released!
