Here’s a video of an old VR prototype we made in UDK back in 2013. We’re currently planning a fuller game inspired by this (which will be accompanied by a free UE4 remake of the prototype at some point). The original concept was vaguely meant to be about social anxiety and was inspired by an eerie online test we were fond of. It kind of fell apart but I’m happy with the general mood/atmosphere. The new title will be a surrealist first-person adventure game about a group of people who find themselves literally trapped in their homes after receiving a cryptic email.
Falling Slime is an arcadey physics puzzle game that combines matching puzzlers with falling sand style games.
We’re releasing now into Steam early access with the hopes of using player feedback to shape our focus for future content. We will be delivering regular updates here over the course of the game’s development, and will strive to keep the community involved in the evolution of Falling Slime! Thank you for your investment in us!
So for our Unreal Engine 4 project, we’ve been working on a gameplay mechanic involving microphone input. This is something that hasn’t been very well documented in the community so far. We started an Answer Hub thread about it and have since figured it out, but have seen some others still asking. So, sorry for the delay but here are the relevant excerpts for our implementation.
// Additional includes:
// New class member:
TSharedPtr<class IVoiceCapture> voiceCapture;
voiceCapture = FVoiceModule::Get().CreateVoiceCapture();
// Capturing samples:
uint32 bytesAvailable = 0;
EVoiceCaptureState::Type captureState = voiceCapture->GetCaptureState(bytesAvailable);
if (captureState == EVoiceCaptureState::Ok && bytesAvailable > 0)
memset(buf, 0, maxBytes);
uint32 readBytes = 0;
voiceCapture->GetVoiceData(buf, maxBytes, readBytes);
uint32 samples = readBytes / 2;
float* sampleBuf = new float[samples];
for (uint32 i = 0; i < samples; i++)
sample = (buf[i * 2 + 1] << 8) | buf[i * 2];
sampleBuf[i] = float(sample) / 32768.0f;
// Do fun stuff here
