They Do Not Die v0.2 (Wii Game)

They Do Not Die is top down zombie game!

Release notes:

I know its been over a week and I sorta ruined that streak I had going of frequent posts. I wasn’t really in the mood for programing and replaying Deus Ex is a constant timesink. But I got back into working on They Do Not Die (the Wii version) yesterday and did a bit more today.

You now have a set amount of health which you obviously lose whenever your harmed by zombies. You also have energy which you can use to move faster (just hold down the A button) but if you don’t have any energy left then running will instead consume health. Both your health and energy regenerate.

The camera zooms in and out based on how much remaining health you have. There is some darkness around the borders of the screen which turns red when your losing health.

The iconic arrow sprites from the PC version are now in the game and they rotate and everything. There are now also corpses that get left behind when you kill someone.

When your health hits zero then your sent back to the new start menu from which you can can choose to begin playing again with everything reset.

OpenBOR v3.0.2836 (Wii misc)

OpenBOR (Open Beats of Rage) is an open source engine to play Beats of Rage.

Beats of Rage is a freeware open source video game and moddable game engine made by Senile Team ( http://www.senileteam.com/beatsofrage.html ) and inspired by Sega’s classic Streets of Rage series. The term “moddable” means that the program allows users to create their own content, and thus their own beat-’em-up game, which is then called a “mod”.

Beats of Rage was first made available for download November 2003. It was not advertised in any way other than by word of mouth, yet it soon gained enormous popularity.


Significantly improved performance due to further video optimizations by Plombo.
You can now choose in the video options whether to preserve the aspect ratio (using black bars) or stretch the picture to the screen ignoring aspect ratio.

WiiSCU v0.24 (Wii Application)

WiiSCU by Wack0 (updated by Illinialex24) (mod of IOS51+shop by tona) – powered by PatchMii. The application gives you the option to install new versions of channels and IOSes without touching the system menu.

Remember to be careful with IOS60 if you are on 4.0-4.1, the new version (0.22) fixes the stub issue but it still can be dangerous if your internet or power goes off.


Allows choice of Shop Channel version
