Leaked footage of canceled Wayforward DS game, looks like a slower paced contra with maybe a little horror to it.
From that footage, I think I would have bought it, sucks that it apparently got canned

edit-
Video has been taklen down, so hopefully that means something good...

Believe this is a demo for a game in which Doppelganger was the artist. It looks very nice and smooth, can't wait until it's finished.
Although, not fond of the portraits.

Just ran across it.

I recently discover this link to one of the craziest Japanese snes games I have ever seen and thought people here would enjoy.
I would defiantly play if it was still around. Where do the Japanese get such ideas from and has anyone ever seen anything quite as bizarre as this before?

http://www.bogleech.com/snes-gourmet.html

love it! . . .


Oh man, I got that beat, easy. Possibly the most disturbing Japanese game ever. Go up one level, you'll see they also featured your Gourmet Sentai Bara Yarou.

Anybody here good at math?



the top portion of the image shows how to find the tilex and tiley of a point given the tilesize.  tile = int( pt / tilesize ) + 1
I want to perform this same type of operation on an isometric grid given a constant 2:1 tile ratio, and origin is the top corner of the isometric grid.

I'm assuming I should stretch the isometric grid vertically x2 then rotate it counterclockwise by 45 degrees, then finally perform my original equation - but I am unsure how to do this.  Can anyone help?

Maybe this book will be of use?

thanks for the help guys.  Both of those links look insanely awesome.  Bookmarked both of them for future reference :)  I ended up solving the problem before viewing them though.  If anybody is interested, here is how the function ended up...

Code: [Select]
function gettilex(x,y,tilesize#)

   `stretch the iso grid vertically x2 to create
   `perfectly square tiles
   y=y*2

   `find the angle to rotate to
   `(current angle -45 degrees)
   theta#=atan(x/y)-45
   if theta#<0
      theta#=theta#+360
   endif

   `perform rotation. grid should now be straight
   newx = cos(theta#)*x - sin(theta#)*y
   newy = sin(theta#)*x + cos(theta#)*y

   `get tile ordered pair from pixel position
   tilex = int(newx/tilesize#)+1
   tiley = int(newy/tilesize#)+1

   `return tile
endfunction tilex
