Make your own Wii U games

#1rudgerlightPosted 2/22/2013 11:36:18 AM
There is simply too much negativity on this forum. So I decided to show everybody how easy it is to make your own Wii U applications. I tried showing this off last night, but it seems the trolls (and fanboys, if we're being honest) love only responding to troll topics. So this got buried pretty quickly.....or you all think it sucks. In which case, let me know.

Head to this website on your Wii U browser. It's a little buggy, but refresh until you see the color wheel on the top-right:


www.somegamesimade.com


I made this drawing app for the wii u browser specifically.

Here are the controls:

STICKS:
Rstick = change color
Rstick button = hide color wheel
Lstick = move canvas

DPAD
Left = eraser
Right = pen
Up = cycle grid sizes - this change how many pixels you are editing at once
Down = hide grid

BUTTONS:
+ = zoom in
- = zoom out
A = enable Ball - this is just for fun. I suggest turning the grid off, and color wheel off, then zooming out for best performance.

Enjoy! Let me know your thoughts. This is the first thing I've ever really programmed, so expect some wonky behavior as well as eventual updates. Also, it starts out somewhat zoomed in. Each block represents one pixel and the canvas is large.

Such a bad topic. I guess someone has to make games though.

Pretty interesting, if I had some spare time it'd be fun to create some iconic 8 and 16 bit sprites.

The title is bad? Or the idea is bad? What do you mean?

I think it's great that anybody can design a game for the system without any barrier to entry except a domain (which is cheap).....I'm not seeing the bad.

That's really cool; I'm going to favourite and try that out later.

Yours might be one of the best online drawing apps for the Wii U. I was messing around with this: http://mudcu.be/sketchpad/ but it's too clunky to use, and this: http://sketchpad.io/sketch/ one is too slow.

why didn't you just bump this one - http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/631516-wii-u/65522296

You don't even need a domain of your own --- tons of free hosting sites (as long as you don't have too large a fanbase).

I'd love to make a Bomberman-like game and the code would be pretty similar to one I made for an XNA class... just need some more free time. I had actually reverse engineered the official browser demo to play around with --- not nearly as refined as yours, but it gave me some practice: http://picanogfx.unotaku.com/wiiu.php

Anyone who knows some html and javascript can learn what they need fairly easily from the sample: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/hardware/features/internetbrowser/sample.html

Apologies. I don't start topics often and I disliked my old title (can I change titles after posting?). Feel free to mock me.

I haven't seen that second one before, but you're right. It's way too slow for the Wii U browser. Clearly more advanced though.

Check out awwapp.com/draw.html# - this one works a little better, but is much simpler than the two you listed. It's also more limited than what I made in some regards, but reacts much faster.



I'll bump this once it can save images somehow.

Cool. Keep working on it, it's a niche thing now, but it may end up becoming something bigger than you ever imagined.
