The worlds first interactive 3D web series!

Wheatbelt Castle is a pastoral comedy that revolves around an isolated sharehouse. It is also the world's first realtime 3D web cartoon! (as far as I know) This means you can drag to look around and click for easter eggs. The series is based on real events that happened to my housemates. The castle itself is an exact replica of my former rental. Some of the ratbags, scoundrels and cheeky-buggers who inhabit this polygonal world are...

Mugget

Is a strange orphan child of unknown origins. He was found on the banks of Oat River by local hermit, Old Man Seif who then irresponsibly abandoned him on another man's doorstep. His mysterious, but troubled past has matured him into the bread-winner, rentpayer and cleaner of the household. Mugget likes plastic army men, kole beer and BMX.

The Willy Nose Man

The Willy Nose Man is a man of many pleasures. From basking on a hot rock in the sun to diving underwater with a mouthful of Cheetos. Consequently, he is liable for 70% of the grocery, electricity and hot water bills. Don't ask about the name, we made him up in year 9.

Tad Marimo

Tad is a disgraced frog who has progressively drifted down river to the point where he is lost and is disconnected from his family. Despite this, he is able to leach off local inhabitants, partake in boistrousity, and is now even closer to his best friend Squandalo than ever!

It isn't loading!

Sorry to hear. The first time can take a bit longer because your device has to load the Blend4Web engine. After that, other episodes should load faster. If it's still not working I recommend clearing your browser cache and refreshing the page. If you are still having issues, try another browser like Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Opera.

Come on man, it's still not loading..

Well, make sure your browser is up to date and that your device hardware supports WebGL. It might be time to upgrade your device if you don't meet the specs.

It's playing, but the characters are all rigid.

I bet you're using an iPhone. iPhones have a bone limit of 48 or something lame. In later episodes I've cut back the amount of bones in each armature, so try a later one.

It loaded, but there's no audio. So now you're making silent films?

I find this happens on some phones if the bin and json files load before the audio. Just refresh the page.

How do I move the camera?

Hold and drag the mouse around or drag your finger along the mobile screen. Most scenes have this ability, but not all.

Where are the easter eggs?

All over the place. Some are more obvious than others, but often I try to put them at the end. Click objects and characters to see if anything happens.

I want to pause the episode. Is that so hard?

I know, I know. I'll get around to adding that. In the meantime you can just change tabs.
