ChimuAR - 3D Android Game
« on: October 26, 2013, 07:34:33 pm »
Hi everyone, I want to start this thread to show the progress of my graduation project called "ChimuAR". It is an Android game under development for the Museum of America in Madrid, Spain. It uses JPCT-AE as its 3D graphics engine and Vuforia SDK for the augmented reality component.
As of now I have modeled the 3D graphics in Blender and have implemented pathfinding and flocking.

The following video demonstrates the pathfinding and the flocking:

The following are screenshots of the game:

Hi guys, this is my weekly update:

I have implemented the UI using some custom classes. Most of the UI artwork was take from http://opengameart.org/content/rpg-gui-construction-kit-v10 with some modifications to better fit the game's aesthetics.

Some major AI and re-structuring of the code was done in order to make it more re-usable. I'm trying to make it into a framework for future games.
Now that most of the technical implementation has been done, I'm starting to get into the gameplay and will start posting more about it as I develop it.

This is a screenshot of the current state of the game:

Looks very promising. What is the "augmented reality" aspect of the game that you mentioned?

Keep the weekly updates coming...i would like to see how this progresses.

Hi Egon, sorry for not responding sooner. Basically I use Vuforia to recognize pictures of certain museum pieces.
The augmented reality is used to "collect" images of the artifacts. Once you collect a certain number of resources and images you are able to view them in 3D.

I used normal mapping for certain 3D models. This screenshot shows an example of one of the artifacts in the museum that you can unblock by recognizing its image.
