Newo Sky

Newo Sky is a procedurally generated landscape demo/walking simulator. First released for the GBAtemp Bounty 2017 #1. In memory of Ben “bushing” Byer, who passed away on Monday, February 8th, 2016.

The project is roughly 2 years of tinkering around with simplex noise and watching tonnes of videos related to procedural generation. It runs well most of the time but I have yet to add collision or any sort of gameyness to it because just the simple act of getting the procgen working was a hair pulling activity for me.

If you want to see more screenshots drop me a email - I have tonnes. Too bad they max out at 640x480. Hopefully this project inspires someone and people find it entertaining if even just for a little bit.

How to play

With the Wiimote horizontally. Dpad moves, 1 shows the planet selection screen and 2 randomizes the colours of the current planet. In the planet selection screen the Dpad allows you to move a cursor that selects another planet once it comes in contact. Press 1 again to exit the planet select menu. The + button brings up the game menu option.


All controls work for first player only. Wiimote horizontal.
