Game: Br!x 2.0


thumb.jpgJason Bonham [p00f] has created a Blender game that everyone on the BlenderArtists forums is raving about. It's a combination of breakout and space invaders and contrary to most Blender game projects, this one is finished, highly playable and quite addictive.

Some other features that I like: Jason only used logic blocks for this game, just to see if he could pull it off. There's not a line of Python code inside. Similarly, he hasn't used any textures (although I do think the game might look a bit more polished if he did). It even has a few surprises such as (multiple) enemies and a multi-ball feature.

Now, grab your copy (right-click, save-as), read the instructions below and enjoy!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. From the Game Engine FAQ:

    "Can games be converted to an executable?

    * Yes. First remember to pack your data (packs textures used into .blend). In Blender, select "File", then "Pack Data". To create an executable, select "File", then "Save Dynamic Runtime". In the newer versions of blender, the executables need sdl.dll and python_current python version here_.dll (ex: python24.dll), in order to run. "

  2. Nice game!

    BTW: It seems that things has changed in current cvs and playing this is quite surreal. Blocks are floating in the top of the screen and collision detecting is not working correctly and thus game never ends.

  3. It is a really great game - highly addictive!

    Saving it as a runtime makes it runs smoothly on my linux system - and the graphics are good enough even in a maximized window.

    I don't know whether it's the same under Windows, but here there's no "in-game" way to exit the game when running as a standalone program, means: "Esc" doesn't work.

    This can be fixed quite easily by selecting the object "player" and adding a sensor (Key Q), controller and actuator "Quit this game" in the Logic window.

    And now I have to return to the game... ;)

  4. Hi!

    Nice game ! I'm very new to the Game engine, and I have not been able to do good things... this game is impressive, and also it's fun !

    Well done ! Thank you for sharing !


  5. Wow.. I didn't realize that the new Blender game textures allowed for selective wireframe rendering. That is SO COOL and I'm going to exploit the mess out of that feature.... as soon as I finish this history paper. >_>
