To quote: Here is another update to They Do Not Die 2.

Notable changes:

  • A shotgun has been added.
  • Running uses more energy.
  • Game saves are slightly smaller (although it is still fairly slow to create and load them).

Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his homebrew game They Do Not Die 2 to version 0.8 for Windows, Wii and the PS3 console.

Download: They Do Not Die 2 v0.8 PS3 Homebrew Game PKG / They Do Not Die 2 v0.8 PS3 Homebrew Game PKG (Mirror) / They Do Not Die 2 v0.8 Wii Homebrew Game / They Do Not Die 2 v0.8 Windows Homebrew Game

Below are the changes from his blog, as follows: Here is a small update for They Do Not Die 2 along with its first Windows release.

I've added blood and corpses. On Wii and PS3 they quickly shrink until they disappear but on Windows they fade instead of shrink (which I think looks a lot better) and there can be more of them in the game world at a time which means that they disappear more slowly.

I've also made a handful of minor and most likely unnoticeable changes (mostly related to city generation).

Windows controls:

  • WASD = Move
  • Mouse cursor = Aim
  • Right mouse button = Fire the rocket launcher
  • Left mouse button = Fire the machine gun
  • Left shift = Run
  • Space = Pause

Wii controls:

  • Analog stick = Move
  • Pointer = Aim
  • Left = Fire the rocket launcher
  • Down = Fire the machine gun
  • Right = Fire the shotgun
  • A = Run
  • B = Fire the machine gun
  • Plus = Pause
  • Minus = Pause

PS3 controls:

  • Left analog stick = Move
  • Right analog stick = Aim
  • L1 = Fire the rocket launcher
  • R1 = Fire the machine gun
  • L2 = Fire the shotgun
  • L3 = Run
  • Start = Pause

How awesome would it be if you can play this game on Xlink Kai using a LAN option.

Well it would take him a lot of work but it would be awesome if he could pull it off.

This guy is amazing at making games. I'm just starting to wonder when he is going to make a 1st person game (or something of the such) because I think he is fully capable of doing so. Thanks for the update.

I'm surprised Sony or Microsoft hasn't hired this guy. LOL. He's constant with his releases and always has great work.

Today PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his PS3 homebrew game to They Do Not Die 2 v0.5 with the changelog detailed below.

Download: They Do Not Die 2 v0.5 PS3 Homebrew Game

To quote: Here is another update to They Do Not Die 2.

I had added corpses and blood but I’ve removed them because I don’t know how to make them fade away progressively and I find it extremely distracting seeing them just disappear instantly (for performance reasons there needs to be a limit on how many can exist at any given time).

If anyone knows how to go about doing that I would greatly appreciate an example of it. Basically what I’m looking for is the PSL1GHT equivalent of glColor4f. I assume the answer involves shaders which I am sadly fairly ignorant about making and using.

Notable changes:

  • Added two player co-op play (shared screen).
  • There are now cars and boxes scattered around the city.
  • Data is stored more efficiently in game saves and as a result of that saving and loading is faster.
  • The shotgun is more powerful.

PS3 controls:

  • Left analog stick = Move
  • Right analog stick = Aim
  • L1 = Fire the rocket launcher
  • R1 = Fire the machine gun
  • L2 = Fire the shotgun
  • L3 = Run
  • Start = Pause
  • X = Select something in the menu

Burn Zombie Burn, Dead Nation™ and Zombie Apocalypse are really great, and now this stuff with rocket launcher and shotgun. Looks definitely like we could have a lot of fun with this.
