Gotta have a fun relaxing sparetime project going on that I can work on a little bit every now and then.  :)
Currently, this project is "The UFO Game!": A new Blu-Play homebrew game for PlayStation 4. (See

Strongly inspired by the 38 year old game "Satellite Attack" for the Philips Videopac G7000. (Which also means "UFO!" for the Magnavox Odessey2).

Classic Game Room does a good presentation of that game in this video:

And here is a WIP video of my "modern" version:

Main target is PlayStation 4, but it'll also run on PlayStation 3 and standard Blu-ray players using a remote control.
For standard Blu-ray players, since you can only press a single button at a time on a remote control, you can use number keys for controls:
1 = LEFT + UP + FIRE
2 = UP + FIRE
...and so on. You get the idea.  :)

It's not playable on software players like VLC yet, because the current version of libbluray fires KEY_PRESSED and KEY_RELEASED at the same time, despite not actually having released the key yet. But this will be fixed in future libbluray 1.2.0
