Geometry... Geometry never changes. Take control of Bob the Destruct-o-sphere and defend your home against infinite waves of geometric nasties intent on turning you into nothing but pixel dust. Battle over 6 game modes for the highest score in an adrenaline fueled struggle for suvival where swift kills, big combos and well timed bombs are the secret to success. Waves; like the Ocean, is much deeper than it first appears...

A lot has happened. I quit my job, moved house and started working on Waves full time. lets see how that worked out shall we?

Posted by on

Lets start with a video!


More info, screenshots and a desktop wallpaper beneath the cut! Been a while hasn't it? The last time I was here I promised a demo sometime early this year. Well that didn't happen did it?I do however have some very good reasons for it not happening. The first is that as of the start of March I have been working on Waves full time. This involved quitting my old job and moving house (no income means no expensive Cambridge rent). This took a while to sort out but is now sorted out.

The second is that when I promised the demo I said I wouldn't release anything until I had a half decent UI for it. This took far longer than expected and is now mostly finished. The third and most important one though: I don't want to release something I'm not happy with yet. I've only just gotten back into doing the gameplay rather than UI so I've not had much time to work on enemies or bugs. So with everything the way it is I've only just gotten around to fiddling with Time Attack. I have 4 more game modes to work on and one of those involves scripting up 20 30 second challenges. For now I have some new screenshots and a snazzy desktop wallpaper which; aside from the watermark, is exactly how it came out of the game. Shaders can be awesome sometimes.

I assume if you rae going full time that means the game will cost money when it's finally released? Any ideas on roughly how much it will cost?

Other than that, looking fantastic. Keep up the good work.
