Welcome to our IndieDB page for our brand new 3D platformer Billie Bust Up! A cute story driven game featuring Goat and Fox Duo Billie and Oscar! Play alone or with a friend in optional co-op mode! Just a quick warning but our game is still in very early pre-alpha stages, and with a team of 3 people development can be slow! We hope to keep you updated along the way, we are fully open to feedback.

Weekly Billie Bust Update - 24/03/2018


In this weekly update we look more into the finished rig for the Cat Pirates and Billies new mechanics, this includes a tightrope mechanic inspired by 3D Platformer Sly Raccoon and Psychonauts.

Our first major update was moving to Unreal Engine 4.19, our game uses physics based animation with Billies ears, tail, hair and bell, and Oscars tail and ears. UE4 4.19 allows for stable physics so the player won't have any problems with unpredictable floppy ears during gameplay!

We've also finished animating and rigging the Cat Pirates for World 1, this includes animating their eyes and mouth and setting up the control system in Maya.

Here's a video showing our rig animation stress test, where we try to break the rig and find flaws or problems with the rig before dedicating time to full animation, it leads to some pretty extreme and hilarious results


Let's talk Mechanics Updates Next! The following changes from last week:

  • Billie now blinks
  • Oscar will emote when Billie does
  • Billie can now crawl, animation is still in its block out pass
  • Billie now has a goat tail
  • Improvements made to roll and long jump, roll uses root motion for more predictable results


That's it for this weeks Billie Bust Update, next week we will be focusing on

  • Fish models and fish AI for underwater sections
  • Fat Cat Pirate Model
  • Improvements to tightrope mechanics, including physics rope
  • Otter low poly model and texture
  • Improves to NPC UI

Thanks for reading, but before you go check out this weeks amazing Fanart Feature!
