iVoltage Sparks HTML5 Demo – San Angeles

by michaK on 29/07/2013

We just finished porting the San Angeles demo into an HTML5 Sparks view. We almost didn’t perform any specific optimizations yet but the performance is already acceptable.  This demo is written in a combination of C++ & Lua and compiled for the javascript webGL Api. Works best in Firefox and Chrome, needs to be activated in Safari and will be supported in Internet Explorer 11 for Windows. Let it play for a minute or two and let us know about the framerate / download time.

iVoltage has a Leap

by michaK on 30/01/2013

iVoltage is ecstatic, we have been selected to receive the 1st prototype of the Leap motion device! As seen in the original video Leap holds its promises; precision, low latency, no need for user calibration, finger recognition, the ability to switch users instantly and the fact that it can be interrupted and resumed at any time which completely changes the interaction paradigm. We love it already and wanted to share our joy at unwrapping this new toy.

Froggle and iFeelSmart

by michaK on 11/09/2012
iFeelSmart + iVoltage + Froggle: The game can be played with almost any type of input and you can take away your progression with you on your mobile companion screen

We’ve been working under the hood on a tight integration of Froggle with the stunning SmartTV interface of iFeelSmart. We believe they designed the TV as it should have always been, using high performance OpenGL rendering and a sleek and intuitive interaction designed by Dale Herigstad. The Chief Creative Officer behind the interfaces of Minority Report designed a navigation that is never interrupted and only features smooth transitions from screen to screen.

We’ve worked on a tight integration which allows you to switch between apps, TV and now gaming with seamless transitions, and enhance the mobile experience on a 3D screen. Froggle interacts with a number of modules, this means you can play Froggle using the input that is the most natural and accessible to you, be it the PrimeSense camera, a gamepad, a TV remote, or even your iPhone or Android as a network remote. We can’t wait to showcase this collaboration at CES!

Leap Motion – A Game Changer

by michaK on 22/05/2012

When former Apple VP of Mobile Advertising Andy Miller meets with NASA and Web/MMO masterminds David Holz and Michael Buckwald beautiful things are created. Near controls are the current dream in motion applications / games. Leap, their motion controller has the right shape, ease of use / setup to fit any desk, travel in any pocket and boasts excellent precision and reactivity. I am very happy to finally see a motion controller penetrate the Mac market with the right Apple angle.

This video was released yesterday, in a few hours we’ve heard about Leap from four different people on three different continents.

Froggle GDC 2012 Preview

by michaK on 10/03/2012

Michel enjoyed a whirlwind two weeks in San Francisco presenting our newest game Froggle at the GDC. He gave a speech on Designing Under Constraints at the OpenNI Motion Games Developer Day, befriended the Halfbrick geniuses behind Fruit Ninja Kinect and JetPack Joyride, met the guys from Touch Arcade who wrote this article about Froggle and clinked glasses with some VIP’s at Microsoft.

It’s been great to introduce Froggle and get some feedback on the game. Often described as a cross between Jetpack Joyride, Tiny Wings & Flower with an Origami twist, Froggle is a beautiful mission based casual platformer which includes multiple vehicles for a total of 6 interaction gestures. Designed to be extensively cross-platform Froggle will be released in 2013. Big thanks to Jared for writing such a great article on TouchArcade.
