Rejoyce: 1.5 will have ambient music

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on July 21, 2010 by bersaelor

Yesterday I got a message by Markus Illko, telling me he liked tactica and that he wanted to make ambient sound tracks for it.

The samples he has on his homepage sound really promising, so now I’m looking forward to an awesome score.

Given I’ll also add some new animations to version 1.5, the media experience will have a whole new depth 🙂

New Book

My sister got me an Amazon Gift Coupon for easter, so I decided to get a Book about iPhone Programming.

Being quite experienced in the basics I went for “More iPhone 3 Development” by Dave Mark and Jeff LaMarche. So far I really like it, it’s written in a casual voice but not that informal as it would substract from the matter.

It covers NSStreams and establishing Socket Connection but seems to focus on Core Data. As of now I only see minor uses of Core Data to speed up loading and saving of games in my App. Still I might have a look into it once I’m going for the Version 1.1 of the game.

So thanks Dave Mark and Jeff LaMarche for writing the book. I also figured since I learned so much from Jeff’s Blog I had to buy some of his work.

Intro Video

Here I tried to produce an Intro video for the App.

Sadly, I don’t think I was very successful. The only Idea that came to mind was a 2D Jump&Run like App that gets smashed by one of my 3D Mech’s. Maybe it’s the sound but doubt it really carries my message…

Anyway it is not rendered, instead I used the Standard EAGLView-Method, Models and 3DEngine I use ingame. The soundfile is the great “Negative Future”-Theme by ERH .
