iSnowboard for iPhone from Ezone.com (using Unity 3D)

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

iSnowboard is going to be our first 3D iPhone game. We are using Unity 3D for all the development. This demo is a bit of a fake, but we are hoping that the final version will have a similar look and feel. The demo was created by recording the game video from Unity on a Mac and then converting and transferring to an iPhone. Then I just tilted the phone to match the video, and there you have it! The game meets technical requirements for Unity for iPhone, the max poly count for any frame is less than 6000, and we have tried to minimize the use of built-in physics. Hopefully when it is all done we will see similar performance and frame rates on the iPhone, but we’ll have to wait until Oct 22nd to find out (when Unity officially releases ‘save as iPhone app’) — unless of course the Unity guys want to send us a beta build so we can release this game earlier!!For more information contact us at http://www.ezone.com/feedback.htmLook out for “iSnowboard” in the iPhone App Store in November 2008! In the meantime check out our Crazy apps like “Crazy Lighter”, “Crazy Dummy”, and “Crazy Mouth”. Here’s our app store page:http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewArtist?id=283905453

Domain Locking Your Game

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

There are some devious game sites out there that will host your Flash games without your permission. There are a few different methods available to help protect this from happening. The most basic protection is a domain lock, which effectively stops the game from running on servers other than the domain you specify.
