Testing deployment on Ouya

Testing deployment on Ouya Game Console

Over the past couple of weeks I have been tidying up and prepping for the deployment of Mystic Mayhem on various systems. The first device I have chosen to deploy is the Ouya game system, The game is currently under review and hopefully be ready before Thanksgiving. What is an Ouya? An Ouya is a micro-console that runs Android OS. I was one of the original backers when they where on Kickstarter and thought it was a great idea to make Android games/apps available in the living room. The device makes a great  Android dev tool and made it very easy to test using a controller and a touch interface, which is good if you want to deploy to other Android devices. The Ouya edition of Mystic Mayhem will have the same levels, music, and gameplay as the Xbox version. It will also be available for the same price [ 99 cents].  Please keep checking this site because over the next couple weeks I will be submitting to Google Play, Kindle, iOS and others.

Dev Update – Mystic Mayhem

18 08 2012

It is getting close to release and I was able to add additional update to the game. Some time ago I saw this video and motivated me to do an update to the shader [HLSL] to make the items glow to give more ambiance to the interactive items in the game. I have also fixed some loading/parsing [CultureInfo] issues for international customers.
Below are some samples of the graphics updates. Enjoy 🙂

What are the most memorable aspects of a game that draws you into the experience? Story? Graphics? Perspective? Lighting? Use the comments and let me know.
