Ok, so I have some great news! We are getting closer and closer to the release date of this project. I know I haven't posted in a little bit, but this new feature I am adding will make up for that.

That's a little late april fools...
Anyway that would be cool in reality

That looks like it would hurt your finger...
I love having to connect a camera to my computer to play a game! It seems counterintuitive, and it is.
Nice try though Razz
Wow, either your camera lenses/ sensor is really broken, or your video editing skills need some polishing! Razz

It looks really cool, how'd you edit in the swipe?

Clearly, you never read anything.

In reality though I just wasnít able to finish the edit in time Razz

Iíve started getting into Adobe After Effects, so there is more going on here than you think. Despite some of the crappy issues you see in the video, this still took me a few hours to figure out, and about half an hour to render...

Thereís actually two videos. One is a real overhead recording of the screen, except it is cropped to only include the actual gameplay. In that recording, I am actually using the keypad, but that was cut out of course.

The second video is me just moving my finger around the screen. I recorded that, with the previous video playing on my computer so as to have a reference where to swipe Razz

The hardest thing, as you can imagine, was to actually combine these two videos. I was able to put the cropped gameplay over top of the screen in the 2nd video, but then I also had to figure out how to keep my finger from not getting hidden by what I just put in. Thus, a few masks later and some clever keying out, I was able to get just my finger from the 2nd recording and overlay that on top of the gameplay.

And after dealing with all that, I was too tired and it was getting too late to try and fix the other issue Razz
I heard that posting the day after April Fools day doubles the bamboozle

edit: sorry, double post Razz
Eh, even tho we argue, I still love the progress!
I really think you would get amazing reviews on this, if it gets submitted.
And I'll try to end our arguments by aiming to be the first one to leave a review for your program!
In other news, I am incredibly thankful to Mateo for helping me out with the real project! There has been an attempt to start implementing a background, and this is Mateo's potential wood background implementation.



The wood is not my favorite though, I'm thinking I will probably replace it with something that looks more cartoon-y just like the sprites. But that's only if Mateo is able to speed things up/fix graphical issues with the background. For now, I am continuing to work without a background.
When I first mentioned the background, I specificlly referenced the default wooden background from the mobile app; sorry for the confusion.
Although it's not the final background, I think having a BG makes it look more complete.

Of course you will need to find a speed solution, but I'm sure you can get it there.
I agree with the previous posts, the background really adds a lot to the game and I think the real original fruit ninja background would look perfect in this! Do you plan to add multiple backgrounds or allow us to send our own? Great job Michael and Mateo!

I'm not planning on allowing people to send their own, but I'll consider adding a choice between multiple backgrounds in-game. And if I don't do that, I think people will still be happy if I can get just the background from the original game working.

Motivation is low for this project at the moment, I'm working through some other life stuff at the moment but I'll have some updates later in the month.

I'm also considering the possibility of having this done for maker faire.
Trying out some things, I would like to have a rotating triangle or some kind of glowing effect behind the pomegranate. If possible I would also like a "zoom in" effect but I'm not sure about that.
