Walaber's Trampoline

21

tramp_11_sm.jpgWalaber has published a freeware game called "Walaber's Trampoline". What makes it interesting (besides having a totally original and crazy concept), is that most of the modeling was done with Blender and that he used the Ogre3D game engine.

Walaber writes on BlenderArtists.org:

Here are some images from my game "Walaber's Trampoline". All models except for the male gymnast were made by me in Blender. The Male gymnast model was made by another artist in Max, but I rigged and animated it in Blender. Lightmapping was done with Gile[s], the renderer is Ogre3D. The physics are using the Newton Dynamics engine.

As for the music, the game manual lists all of the artists, make sure to support them by visiting their websites, they were kind enough to let me use their music for free!

Check out the trailer, or download the full game (Windows only):

Full Install [75MB .MSI] - be sure to uninstall any previous versions before installing this one.
Zipped [72 MB .ZIP]- just zipped up, you must have the msvc8 runtime for this to run.

  1. This looks like a LOT of fun!! -like the music too :) hmm.. for some reason it's open ended gameplay (right context?) reminds me of the THPS games (game's a different genre entirely tho..)...

  2. Uhhhh.. I can't help but feel like I could be jumping on a real trampoline and it would be just as fun. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or an insult... All I could think while watching the video was "what!? why was there so much effort put into making a high-quality trampoline career roleplaying game?" It's just plain wacky and weird, and maybe it's so damn crazy that it just might work.

    Thanks for the post -- and laugh.

  3. That makes me smile. Dude I LOVE YOU MAN. Some people like to criticize things without having tried them first, which is really really worrisome to me... but anyway Now I have to say that I haven't tried it yet but I will. And dude I just love what I've seen so far. You obvioiusly have some kind of thing for trampolines =) and I think that's awesome.

    This game would fit right in in Japan!! lol

    From the looks of it, it is really really well done I will play it when it downloads and maybe leave another post.

    You rock!!

    Uh, how many polys are there on screen at once?

  4. I like the part where the girl's hand get's stuck inside the trampoline and then her arm breaks and her elbow bends backwards and the title saws

    "REALISTIC PHYSICS"

    Dude you rock!

  5. I just played it and I love this game. Omgosh. BEST PHYSICS EVER! It seriuosly feels like I'm jumping on the trampoline. I love this game. The music from the bands are awesome and it even features multiplayer!!!

    I Love this game how else can I say it. the graphics are great this game rox my sox. I'm gonna be the best trampoline master EVER!!

  6. Lol i've seen kind of wips thread of this game in different forums.... This guy is crazy haha, he has been doing trampoline all his life and decided to make a game .... he has spent quite some time on it in and i'm amazed by the result.

    Try it out :)

  7. I had to severely compromise my system's security to dl this file (tolerate all kind of cookies and dodgy scripts).

    I really do not like the way that the dl-site operates. Please do not use it again!

  8. I just couldn't help but laugh out loud when I saw the people falling on their heads and crying out in pain. :) Maybe next you could get the physics to work on the girl's skirt so it blows with the wind, it looks too stiff. (ever seen girls on trampolines on the Man Show? lol)

  9. Right this game look absolutly amazing.

    But... when i go onto play game it stops and an error message "pops up" sayin something like; "an eception has been thrown".
    Does anyone know whats wrong?
    Is there anything i need to download?
    Please reply asap!
    thanks

  10. I'm totally addicted to this game. Cooly, it's incredibly easy to mod. I don't think it was intended to be so easy to hack, but it is and I can make the game to coool stuff. It's actually quite a good platform for learning how to make games. You can add functionality very easily.
    I love it. GET IT!

  11. Excuse me but I have only 3 characters:Basic man,Basic woman and Gorilla..How can I get the other characters like the girl with the skirt ? Please tell me :)
