I've started a new game project for the gp32x. I usually don't announce anything this early as doing so tends to lead to cancelled projects for some reason.. anyway, with the first test versions on the "engine", I feel fairly good about it.

It's a remake of sorts of one game I liked in the past, and I haven't seen anyone doing any clones of it - and I think the concept would work rather well on the gp2x.

The game's name is Nelumbo. That's the only hint I'm giving at the moment - try to see if you can figure it out =)

Is it a a game where you are Lieutenant Nelumbo of the ECPD (Elephant City Police Department) and have to solve crimes such as theft of bananas while wearing a shabby rain coat and saying "one last thing..."?

While ..interesting.., wrong. =) The name is a hint, and shouldn't take much research to figure it out.
Isn't Nelumbo a black porn actor?
You can end banned by promoting porn links here <_<

Considering what the name means, I wouldn't be surprised, but no, I'm not referring to any "adult entertainment".

Err, no. No adult entertainment.

To clarify the hint a bit - there's a relatively old game with a distinct name, and by researching what Nelumbo means, you'll probably spot it.

edit: And yes, there'll be screenshots.

Woah! Is that a 3d driving game??? Whats with the white line and green squares? Looks very promising...

Kind of 3d driving game. Look up lotus3 the ultimate challenge and you'll see what I'm aiming for. Might not be as good, might be better, who knows =)

The white thing etc. are debug stuff; like I said, these are from a very, very early development version.

Sweet! :)

Did you test it on the GP2X, I'm curious what performance you're getting out of it. I'm really looking forward to this, very nice work!

Let's just say some optimization may be required =) I'm not all that surprised though, as I went quite overboard with the sprites there, and pretty much everything is still in floating point..
