Project Description:

Hydrospace is a 5 level game concept that showcases the ability to use zSpace for an immersive gaming experience.  Hydrospace plays like a 3D hybrid of Missile Command and Asteroids, where the goal is to defend the planet and your ship while simultaneously blasting all of the enemy ships and projectiles.

Project Status:

This project is complete as version 1.0 and is considered a proof of concept demo.  There are no plans for further development at this time.

Download Link:

HydroSpace Download

Prerequisites:

  • zSpace System Software 2.8 or newer
  • openGL quad buffer capable GPU (nVidia Quado or AMD Firepro)
  • zSpace as a single display or primary display in a multi-display environment

Known Issues:

  • The first time you launch any Unity app on a system after Windows bootup or tracking service start in full screen mode, the app will actually come up windowed and flickering.  To fix this, you can press Alt+Enter to put it back into full screen mode or close the app, restart it, uncheck the "Windowed" box on the front-end dialog and click Play to bring it up full screen.  This issue only happens on fresh bootup of Windows or recent starting of zSpace tracking service.

Installation:

  1. Double click hydrospace.exe and follow the prompts to install the game.
  2. There will be a start menu folder and shortcut created as well as a desktop icon.
  3. Double click hydrospace on the desktop or within start menu - zspace - hydrospace folder to begin.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to play the game. 

Usage:

Hydrospace has a built-in tutorial that will explain how to play the game. In lieu of that, here are the actual controls.

Basic controls 

  • Center button - tractor beam (use this to grab and throw enemies)
  • Left button - weapon equipped for your left side
  • Right button - weapon equipped for your right side
  • P - Pause game - brings up the pause menu
  • Top left status bar is earth's health
  • Top right status bar is ship's health
  • Bottom center status bar is level progress indicator.  In the final boss fight, the center status bar is the boss's remaining health.

    Everyone, please note:

    The installer has been updated on 5/7/13.  The prior installer would not play beyond level 1 of the game.  If you downloaded this prior to 5/7/13, please uninstall and re-install with the newer download provided. My apologies for the oversight :)

    Regards,
