#169 - The Afro Challenge

Afro was bored..

The Challenge

Afro made lots of models in Max last week, so steal it all and make a game!

All Afro's models are in this thread, and this one, too.

You can use the images provided to make sprites.. Use the models to make your own sprites.. Or even attempt something in 3D.
Plenty of choice!
Go nuts!!

The Time

Wed 17th September -> 24th September, 2008
You have until this timer hits zero to complete your entry. For the record, that's Tue/Wed, midnight GMT.

The Rules

You're free to reuse functions here and there, if it helps speed up your dev-time. Old art and audio, are pretty much expected, since we don't all have time to create fully working masterpieces within the space of a week!

Other than that, the main coding for each week's task should be pretty much created within the time allocated.

If you use other people's art/sound/functions, give credit where credit's due.
To enter, post your game below. If you can't find anywhere decent to host it, send it to Jayenkai@Gmail.com

Additional rules are available here.

Last Week

Two entries..

Afr0 saw a naked lady, and desperately wanted to join in!

Two entries last week, thank you very much!

Well, I downloaded a couple of the .max files that Afr0 provided.. Wasn't entirely sure of a game to make, but figured I might as well start by popping them into truespace (which is free now, remember!) and see if any ideas pop up.

Didn't work.

After a quick google, it seems that .max is a 100% proprietary format, which only F'ING Max can open, and you can't convert unless you have Max..

So, either I buy Max at several hundred thousand pounds, or I'm out of this week's workshop.

Sorry Afro!

Export, anyone?

Edit: Fixed!

Here's the first export file: export01.rar

Files have been exported to the 3D Studio (3ds) format. It should be pretty easy to work with... I am about 95% it opens in Milkshape, at least.

Second export file: export02.rar

ok, I entered..
I grabbed a couple of your original images, and made Afro's Chair!

A wonderful game without a titlescreen, or an end screen, or sounds, or music, or anything like that..
Just hit escape when you can't be bother anymore, or have managed to complete the game!
