Here's a bunch of news in no particular order!

I added initial sound support last week-end.


and we took part in an awesome game jam. Doomsday Carrot Rampage is the result!



pixelboy and Canardu57 started a fighting game in celebration for Minecon called CraftFighter and a bunch of other CraftStudioers are helping out. It'll be playable for the first time at the CraftStudio booth which I'll be holding, hope to see some of you there on November 24-25! Smiley


I ordered 2 two-meter-high roll ups and 10 000 flyers for Minecon. They look awesome! (More photos here)



I did a bit of optimization work and got some frustum culling working. CraftStudio games are now much smoother!

I implemented an "online players" counter and we got up to 33 players online. This is what it looks like:

It's like your "engine" if I can call it engine is like the Construct2 of 3D-basic modelled-games?

I only think that because of the visual scripting Tongue

Yeah you could say that, but CraftStudio is multiplayer too (aka. you can build games together in real-time), which makes it very different from other game-making tools.

It's like an IRC server except each room lets you edit a model, map, script or scene together.

For instance, between 10-15 people took part in making Doomsday Carrot Rampage. Here's the recording of our game jam.

Looks original and a good idea but I feel like this is not a serious game engine, I don't know why but I feel like this.

Anyways it should be fun to make a game with your team seeing what you do and helping you at the same time, this part is what I do like more of CraftStudio.

I suspect it's the blocky/pixely style along with the game-like interface that might make you feel that way. They are part of the core premise though: making game-making fun and accessible to all.

I do have a cleaner interface redesign in the works though. (And in the very long term, I would love to have a more "pro"-oriented version with regular modeling features and stuff like that, but that's mostly a wild dream for now)

As a game development tool, I don't really see myself using this (I actually like all the techy programming stuff for some reason), but as a game in itself, I think I could have a lot of fun collaborating with random people online. Good work, and I look forward to seeing more of this.

When I make games, I don't take risks. Everything I put my heart into is a guaranteed success.

Oh hey! Smiley Hope you liked my presentation back then. CraftStudio sure has come a long way since then!

Yup, I totally see the appeal of doing engine work and making it all by yourself. Once you do it, the freedom you get and sense of accomplishment is pretty sweet and hard to give up.

Like you said though, the multiplayer game-making experience is pretty awesome (I know I'm biased having made it myself and all, but seriously, it IS fun). I've found it to be especially awesome for short game jams like Ludum Dare: meet with your teammates on the server, brainstorm in a collaborative document / chat together, then start building. Seeing what everyone is doing come together bit by bit every time you hit F5 to start the game feels very empowering Smiley

It's been a while, hasn't it?

CraftFighter made with CraftStudio by Cubix Games has been released and is being very well received in the Minecraft community Smiley: http://www.cubixgames.com/craftfighter/




I just uploaded a video tutorial for moving around a character with visual scripting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRtbKsMCZEc

EDIT: Oh right, the initial version of visual scripting is out! It's not finished but it works!


Back in December the French CraftStudio community made Beach, please!, a 72h Ludum Dare jam entry: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-25/?action=preview&uid=6780


Last night I started replacing the welcome message + my face with a list of games you can download & play directly from within CraftStudio:




This is quite exciting as it paves the way for CraftStudio as a gaming platform: player profiles, multiplayer, high scores, etc. FUN TIMES AHEAD! My Word!

I spent the last couple of days building a WebGL model viewer for CraftStudio using Three.JS and I just uploaded a live demo if you want to try it out:



Should work great in both Chrome and Firefox.

Paving the way for a future Web player for CraftStudio games... Smiley

While CraftFighter was pretty basic, it felt like a normal standalone game which is cool. I'll have to try this software out and see its possibilities/limitations.
