So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

The Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer is the sequel to The Incredibles video game. The game takes place right where the movie left off when the Underminer arises (but not the game which ends after the last Omnidroid was destroyed).

Basically, this game is Incredibles 2, thirteen years before the real movie came out. Weird.

Unused Text

A bunch of the ini files contain developer comments, along with some commented-out data.


# Explosion types.  Note: Motes are fire and/or smoke particles.  The scale of
# a mote is based on 3 factors: it's random initial scale (scale_min to
# scale_max), its fire/smoke scale (scale_fire and scale_smoke), and its
# animated scale (in the anim frame values).

# Textures.  These textures must exist in the scene for the explosion to work properly.

# Animation key frames.  Each value specifies the alpha, scale, heat, and rise
# of a mote during a particular time in its life, represented as a fraction of
# its total life.  Time values (t) should be sorted, from 0 to 1. The values
# for each time are linearly interpolated between key frames.  alpha and scale
# are multipliers on the base mote alpha and scale.  heat controls the blend
# between fire and smoke (0 all smoke, 1 all fire).  rise specifies an
# additional upward velocity applied to the mote.
# Animation       t     alpha scale heat rise glow
