I might add a couple things to this render, like an alligator at the home base area, but I figured I better strike while the DD iron is hot. :laughing: This is the Konami arcade video game classic Frogger, completely redone in 3D via voxel (volumetric pixel) modeling. Hope you like it; still have many arcade classics (uh-oh, I'm branching out from just the NES) like this to finish up over the next several months. Before anyone else asks...no, this is not made from Lego bricks; it's also not made in Minecraft, nor is it made for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS. :laughing:

Oh, man. This is one of my favorite arcade games of all time! Ever since my dad introduced it to me through the famous 1997 game when I was a kid, I have adored this series! I've seen other attempts at taking the original look into 3-D, but you, sir, have made the best!

There IS a Frogger 3D out there, you know. It's for PC, and it's quite old, too old to play on the most recent PCs (were talking Windows 95,99 ladies and gentlemen).

Well, it works, but the in-game music usually won't, for some odd reason.

But it's also on the original PlayStation. If you've got a PS2 or a PS3 that can use such old stuff, look for it in that format. I wouldn't know if it's a downloadable title or not, as I (unfortunately) have never owned such systems.

Still, I'd recommend the PC version, as arrow keys feel more natural than a control stick or a D-pad for a game like this. Also, the PC version is more generous with the default life-count for some reason. And, it has no load times. (Yes, the PlayStation version makes you wait so it can load the levels!)

Would you possibly be able to supply the objects used in this wallpaper for a Super Smash Bros. Brawl stage hack? You would be credited for it.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl hacking is entering a new era, with model importing now a reality. See what other people have made so far if you wish:

I, myself, have worked out a Brawl moveset for Frogger. Too bad a hack like that is way too far off. Oh, well. Maybe, I can use it for Super Smash Flash 2's set of expansion characters!

Well, it's not as far off as you think. We'd only need a model and an animator. A program called Brawlbox allows for easily importable and customisable characters and stages in SSBB now. And I rip game models as a hobby, so...
Keep an eye out for future awesomeness. ;)

Well, the "Frogger" I'm thinking of is from 1997, and that model is a little... shall we say... "outdated"?

Maybe the Konami-era Frogger would be a better choice for an import. I was planning on ripping Frogger from then GCN title, "Evolution Skateboarding."

There's gotta be something that can be done to build a Hasbro Frogger!

I particularly like the way the vehicles and the fly look in 3D.

Thanks for reading.

Oddly enough now featured on gamespy... I don't remember so much magenta in frogger though that time bar makes me wonder how this would look animated.

Niiice! This is one of your best ones! :D I love Frogger.

You have a real nack for making old 2D pixal-ish games really appear 3D while keeping them true to their original blocky sprites.
