Translating fun and 3RRODeritus

Posted by Roy Triesscheijn on Saturday 25 October, 2008

A few weeks ago Novaleaf software was looking for translators to localize Biology Battle (remember it being featured at my blog, you can still download the pc pre-release demo!).

I’m going to do the Dutch translations for the game, proud me working on my first professional game project. (ok ok I just have to email them a wordfile with the translations, but who cares, I’m going to be in the credits

Crazy Smile
On another note: I was going to have some quality time with my girlfriend this weekend, and we where going to play Guitar Hero 2, and that would have been allot of fun.

However last evening my Xbox360 died, nice 3RROD and trying to eat the Guitar Hero 2 cd which I borrowed from a friend. Damn!

Here’s a handy link for if you got your CD stuck in your bricked 360.

(Gosh I hope my next Xbox360 will survive for more than 3 months. (The first one actually survived two owners from release day till 3 months ago)).

First XNA Demos comming out: Novaleaf Biology Battle

Posted by Roy Triesscheijn on Saturday 18 October, 2008

The first XNA Community Game demo’s are comming out already, not yet on Xbox Live, but there are already pc demo versions available for some games.

Biology Battle is a unique take on the classic space shooter genre. Take control of a medical nanobot during it’s mission inside of a target cell.

Avoid the cell’s defenses, and survive long enough to complete your mission. And then? Well, lets just say it gets a bit nastier.

And I have to say it’s addicting already, until the real version comes out on Xbox Live, you can check out the PC demo, you can even play it with an Xbox controller, but if you don’t have one, don’t panic, the keyboard+mouse controls are just fine.

You can find the demo fo Novaleaf Biology Battle here.
