Physics Games and Physics-Based Game Downloads

Game Developer’s Conference 2006

Friday, March 17th, 2006 by Matthew in News

Hey everyone! Anyone keeping careful count probably noticed the site drop from three updates per week to two. Fear not, it will go back to three/week soon–the reduced activity has been due to preparation for this year’s Game Developer’s Conference. I’ll try to update next week during the actual show, but more than likely I’ll be completely swamped with other activities.

Feel free to stop by and say hello if you’ll be attending the GDC this year. One of our company’s casual games, Glow Worm, is nominated in the Independent Games Festival for art and audio this year. You can find me at our booth in the IGF pavilion when I’m not in a meeting.

    Now I’m not sure if this is the place for self-promotion, but there’s no forum, so I thought I’d post this here: I made a few soft body physics-based games back in the day, but I’ve never bothered to promote them. They’re all made with a 2D soft body physics engine I wrote and am in the process of rewriting for 3D. When I read the “I searched and searched but always came across the same stuff” I figured you guys might enjoy something new.

    So, the first link is

    where there are 2 levels from the best game (run demos 3 & 4, after installing the included DLL). And the second link is

    which is the main page for the physics engine, and where you can grab a couple more games (on the Downloads page).

    Hope you like them.

    Hi Alec,

    Someone had actually emailed me a link to your site last week. It’s very promising stuff–I realize you probably don’t have a lot of time, but I’d love to see some of those game demos polished up into products. They’re a ton of fun to play.

    And Sporbie:

    Most of the games I’ve talked about are ones I’ve come across in the last few years. Some are new to me–people email me links to their favorite titles. My to-do list for the site is still ~25 or so games, but I’m sure more will crop up before I exhaust them all.
