you should make it so people that use a Mac/Macintosh computer can use this game too, reason why I'm mentioning this is because some game file types on windows aren't supported on Mac so the game might not work for those people

Is there any way to support 21x9 aspect resolutions? Fullscreen on my monitor: a) cuts off part of the menu, b) turns the marble into an ellipsoid, and squashes the map too.

release for mac please
I am sure a mac will not have a GPU good enough for this game. RTX3060Ti running almost full power for this game
It runs flawlessly through wine (on Linux at least), so you could give that a go.
Me: maybe I'll try to see if it works like that
System: you cannot run "marble marcher.exe" because windows files are not supported on Mac.

I think we are overdue for more levels or a sequel.
holds out a bowl in his tiny trembling hands, and says in a tiny trembling voice;
"Please sir.... can I have some more ?"
Then in stepped the Marble Marcher Community with a huge ladle full of second helpings and pudding to follow.
Is it a virus?
Marble Madness and Super Monkey Ball took acid and had a baby.
10/10 couldn't work on my world geography final because of this game. would recommend.

If we could disable shadows it would probably be able to run easily on about any hardware. I run on the second lowest setting on intel HD Graphics 620, and it's butter smooth on scren saver (50-60 fps), and between 30 and 40 fps when playing. Maybe an opaque marble could save a few resources for lower-end devices too.
As for the gameplay and the music : simple and nice.
We have potato?
Potato changes the resolution for rendering everything, with an insanely low 320x180 (I don't know who would actually play like this). It does run smoothly on low-end GPUs but is nowhere near looking like enjoyable.
Adding settings for shadows (which can be very power expensive) and reflections (same goes) would allow for higher quality rendering but better performance on every hardware, including low-end, perhaps drastically.
I use the potato setting...
CodeParade Made a video about the rendering process and(according to him) due to the way ray marching works
Shadows come at pretty much no extra work when rendering
Most games use rasterization, this one uses ray marching, so it works in a very different way. This game can't use rasterization because the fractals are not made with polygons like any other 3D model in any other game
I love the catwalk and the sponge, keep up the great work
interesting... trippy kinda feel or something. Really cool looking art!
noice, a game that features fractals. Kinda wanna try
marble marcher for mac is gone! crabrave?
no. this is a serious problem.
It looks amazing
Anyone else had to learn the hard way that right click resets? That made me feel literal pain.
i cant jump
that is not possible. You can jump by going over ramps
try to make it for crome if posable
Are you talking about a Chrome Book? When yes you can just enable linux mode and recompile it.
what is linux mode
It's a 2016 chromebook it's not the one 2here can do the roof style
can you give me some step by step intructions on how to load it through linux
When hhaving that activated you have an app folder called Linux in that there is a terminal. That will you need. In the terminal you need to download the source code. Run in the terminal "sudo apt install git libeigen3-dev libsfml-dev make cmake" to install the dependencies. Now run "git clone https://github.com/HackerPoet/MarbleMarcher" to clone the git repo. Then "cd MarbleMarcher" to open that folder and then execute "mkdir build && cd build" to create a new folder and open it "cmake .." to setup the build system "cd .." to get back to the root folder "cmake --build build" to build it
wish he had support for other platforms. looks interesting.
How do I fly or just explore?
i want this open for mac, please. please.
Hello! First of all, congrats on the great work, really interesting. That being said, have you written any papers, tech reports or material that can be used to study the theories involved and your application of them in making the game?
I ask that because I am a university teacher here in Brasil and I currently have a student working on procedural generation of game scenarios and he has found your game and now he is very interested in doing something similar.
Thanks in advance!
I have not written any papers on the collision detection used in the game (my main contribution here). However, there are many papers and tutorials already about ray marching rendering and procedural fractals or terrains. Specifically, you could check out the work of Inigo Quilez. But for collisions, I do have a more robust implementation in my python framework PySpace that generalizes the NP function to other SDFs besides Marble Marcher.
Now with the release of the RTX 3000 cards, do you plan on adding a 4K patch?
most likely there won't be an update for that but you can take a look at the Marble Marcher Community Edition, that has support for custom resolutions and also has better graphics and performance.
Hope all work is good for hyperbolica . So, I watch your garfeild video and thought about you making something with a similar tecnology, but with random shapes for each picture.If you make something like this, thank you and have a great day.
I WANT FOR MacOS!
I had this bookmarked for the longest time.
Finally tried it, and it's great!
this is a good start for a first game!
cool game i sugest mmce for more levels
it says failed to complete vertex shader pls help
Maybe make a mac version?
the last level is very difficult, took 20 mins to figure out the path
It's runs in exactly 30-60 FPS (does vertical sync is turned on? Hate it; without vert sync it's about 40 FPS) on 2k with GTX1080. Can you add 3840x2160 option?
Good game. Would be nice to have checkpoints and jump button
you could try to run the Marble Marcher Community Edition on that resolution, that also has better performance and graphics
How do i install
i have potato.
CAN WE GAIN THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE CONTROLS?!! I'm left handed and instead of moving with WASD, I use IJKL, but this game forces me to play with WASD.
fractals can be generated randomly by the computer , it was better if the levels of the game were generated randomly by the computer to make the game become endless ,
watch his video on you tube. there he explains why this doesnt work. the distance estimator is not good enough for most fractals. thats why he had to handselect them.
I would like to see the option anyway. You can put a notice before it that says something like, "Untested fractals might be buggy. Gameplay consistency not guaranteed."
There is a game called Superflight that does something like this. It has what it calls "seeds" which are basically input variables to create the procedurally generated world. Then people can share their favorite "seeds" and the game creates the same world to play around in.
With this method, even though many fractals won't work, people will find and share the ones that do.
By the way, this project/game is fantastic and I would like to support Marble Marcher in any way you need.
