16BitSoft Announces Next SDL1.2+OGL Game Project!

16BitSoft Announces Next SDL1.2+OGL Game Project!

Hi,

My team and I are starting work on our next SDL1.2+OGL game project.

Its called: “Galaxy Taxi” and will be released for Windows/Linux/Mac OS X SL,
Basically the player moves a taxi car with wings between planets
trying to safely transport people while avoiding the evil alien flying saucers.
(for the older people, imagine a large Asteroids type game)

You can view an actual development screenshot here:

I’m not quite ready to release a playable alpha version yet,
but you can view a really cool YouTube video of the game here:
http://16bitsoft.com/development.htm

I wish to have fun with this project and I should have a beta later in the year.
As usual, this game will be Open-Source…

Thanks…------------------------

It looks like a fun change of pace. I thought the title “Spacey Taxi” would
be a bit more humorous :slight_smile:
Best of luck!

Hi,

I’ve waisted over 10 years making stupid Tetris clones!
I figured it was time to do something unique and different.

Are you old enough to remember to the Space Taxi on the Commodore-64?
That had some interesting ideas.

Hi,

Yes I am old enough and did have a Commodore 64 and did play “Space Taxi” game.
That game was excellent and fun and is the inspiration for this new game.
