Software News   Software News : Aquaria for AmigaOS4 released
   posted by afxgroup on 24-Jun-2010 7:42:25 (8279 reads)

We are happy to announce that a preliminary beta of Aquaria is available to download.
You need to buy the entire game from BitBlot to play it.
Included in the package the demo of Aquaria.
The package size is ~250MB so if you download it with OWB take a look at its size
If the included scripts fail to copy the support libs, copy them manually



What is Aquaria?

A massive ocean world, teeming with life and filled with ancient secrets.
Join Naija, a lone underwater dweller in search of her family, as she explores the depths of Aquaria.
She'll travel from hidden caves, shrouded in darkness, to beautiful, sunlit oases, all lovingly handcrafted by its two creators.

Naija's story, narrated fully with voice overs, will become yours, as you join her on this magnificent adventure.

-------------------------
System requirements

* An AmigaNG (SAM,microA1,A1,Pegasos2)
* 512MB of RAM (1GB reccomended)
* A video card with at least 64MB of Ram (128MB reccomended to play the game correctly)
* Latest SDL library (included in the package)
* OpenAL (the included cause an error at exit of program)
* MiniGL 2.2

* The original Game. You can buy it from Bit Blot web site (www.bit-blot.com).
* Once you have the original game, copy the data to the game dir and replace the script original game dir included in this package

------------------------
Installation

Aquaria require some not yet released libs like SDL or MiniGL that are included in this package.
Run the script "Install Support Libs" that will install them for you.
It will backup the current libs as #libname#.preaquaria so you can revert to the original one if you have problems with other packages
Nothing else is required

-------------------------
Known problems

* If you have a system with 512MB and a 64MB of Video ram is better to close all prgram before run Aquaria.
Use also a 16Bit Workbench screen with compositing effects off to save Video RAM

* You could have trashed textures during the menu (and also the game). This means that you are out of memory (Video and/or System).
The game is still playable but you should free something before continue playing but a video card with 128MB of RAM should cure all problems (and sorry.. this isn't a problem on the game..).
If this happens you can close the game and restart from a saved location.

* When you click ESC during the game the machine could freeze.. I don't know why but i have nothing on serial and i don't know why it freeze..

I made a short-bad quality video from camera phone. Just to show how speed in the game, and how it looks in general. I think some of you will interest to check it (peg2/1ghz/radeon9250-128mb/1gb ram + latest aos)

Here is (youtube)

@Andrea
Wow, I looked at kas1e video with tears in my eyes, this truly reminds me of the good old times.
2D games are coming back (just saw pictures of a pseudo Strider sequel SquareEnix is making) and to have this marvel on Amiga is fantastic.

I'm away from it at the moment but will try it out ASAP

Thank for your hard work!

So now I am assuming we need to buy the windows version, as the mac version wont work, or vice versa?

Please be informative, so users, like myself do not end up buying the wrong item, and get disappointed. It may work with either copy, thats true, but I do not know if this is so.

Some info here would be great, cheers.

AND

I could not help but noticed the specifications on the home site of this game, bitblot site, Im impressed it works on as little as even a SAM440EP with stock onboard gfx, after reading the requirements on BitBlot website.

Well done guys. 6 out of 5 stars.

Cheers

You can't play this game on a micro. Not enough video ram and no way to upgrade. Same problem with other software. That's why I'm upgrading my micro to a SAM 460 or X1000 (hopefully).

Sure we can have it, for Windows it cost 17 so we'll have it for ~117...

(end of sarcasm from what would be a hardware-mind)

Hmm, sorry if this offends someone, just can't resist to say it


Jokes apart, and seriously, congrats and thanks for your work porting this game, looks quite nice.
