3D Tech Demo

Today, Nitrome shared with us a tech demo showing a mechanic which Nitrome may implement into future games. If your wondering “What is a tech demo?”, a Tech Demo is something that demonstrates a mechanic or part of a product (or this case, game).

For this Tech Demo, Nitrome shows us 2D Platforming on 3D shapes, and no, the characters are not 3D. Nitrome provided a 4 minute video to illustrate this concept, with commentary by Mat Annal and Lewis Fravero. When watching the video, you will notice that a Twin Shot Angel are used as the character in the demo. This does not mean Twin Shot 3 is coming out, or a 3D  Twin Shot 3 is coming out, the Twin Shot Angel is just being used for the demo as the character.

    Just to let everyone know, this game should not be coming out any time soon at all. But it’s still something to look forward to.

    One more thing, if this is an NES game (on the NES skin), why don’t they just port it? I am still not too clear on this NES thing. :/

      Because the NES is made up, it doesn’t actually exist >_> duh.

      • NOBODY says:

        No that I’m criticizing anyone, but didn’t you listen to the video clearly? Mat said they kind of “Demade” the game by showing it in line like graphics on the skin, they are currently working on the 3D game, and it isn’t going to be an NES game. 🙂

      • IUHoosiersFan (Cheesemeister) says:

        ‘Demade’ isn’t a word, so it is best ignored. And the prefix ‘de-‘ means down, away, completely, remove, or reversal. So if it was a word, it would likely mean to remove the making of the game, or to take it apart. But how can that be possible if they are still n the process of testing with elements of a different game, which isn’t even going to be in the final experiment. Therefore, this game is brand new, and was never an NES game. In addition, this leads me to believe that the NES is indeed fake.

    • IUHoosiersFan (Cheesemeister) says:

      Oh wow, thanks for that. I really am hoping for an update tomorrow, which would make sense. Since it’s been over a year since our last update, this will hopefully clarify many questions.
