Doofus headed towards last and final beta

The cat's out of the bag. Doofus 3D has long last reached its last and final beta release stage (0.0.4b). Sorry no download yet, but we are happy to announce that this will be the last release of the beta before the game goes into release candidate state when a demo will be available for download. The full and final gold release will follow soon after.

Some bug fixing does follow a beta release so we are still busy perfecting the game as a whole. However, I will announce the official release candidate date soon.

Fresh new website.

Ah, been exceptionally busy for the past 2 months. This blog has remained largely inactive because of that. The fact is I update my personal blog like way too often (, almost every other day) than this blog, which by the way is on a brand new site.

A couple of interesting events.

1. The corporate website for the team and the game is being worked on. I am keeping things hush hush because it is not fully online nor is it fully operational. I will update the blog soon with the name and details. Getting ready for the big announcement ;).

2. I have a personal website . This will be my personal website not the team website nor the game website. It may not be fully operational as yet but I will get to it in a couple of days.

3. My main blog has now shifted to It's the same blog I had on free-hostia ( Got tired of the incessant problems with free hosting.

An extended update.

Bored with reading "oh the game is going on fine, but there are small problems" type posts? Want to know exactly what is going on? Well refer my blog entry which gives out extended technical details on what exactly is going on with the game. Let me warn you though, it contains some gory technical details.

If you are a techie type you can check out my blog. I often give out far more details of the game technology and the posts are more technology specific than over here. That's it for this time.

Beta feedback updates.

Based on beta feedback I have made some changes to the third-person camera. Now the camera is much much smoother for lower FPS values. This is just great because now the game appearers to run far smoother on lower FPS values than it did earlier. I am currently working on minor issues (also based on the feedback) with camera itself.

The AI work is also ON simultaneously. I generally hate to take up two issues at once, but I need my new modifications tested as well and I am trying to balance out things so that beta testing can go on simultaneously. Not the most ideal of situations I know, but can't help it. The AI tweaks are taking longer than anticipated, but then again there are some business issues that I am looking into as well.

Some minor issues still remain. Especially ones like flickering on ATI cards and some problems with disappearing triangles on some cards. Why can't people just buy NVIDIA cards and make life simpler for us (game developers). Oh well, got to live with that.

Whew its been a very hectic week. Nearly put in 90+ hours already. I need to take a break and give the cerebrum a rest.
