  • The Island: Skyworld

    After several months of planning and building we finally finished our game Skyworld. The team was made out of 4 members with there own specialized tasks. The game is made for the DreamBuildPlay contest hosted by XNA and the XBOX 360. The gameplay video url can be found lower A part of the Synopsis: Skyworld. Home to thousands of floating islands and warring factions. These islands are resourceful, rich in gold veins and other natural resources. When these resources run out, factions move on to other islands.

    But what if they encounter another faction that has already occupied the island? Choose between two factions, the modern Industrials or the thundering Cloudsurfers, and lead them to victory! Become the ultimate ruler over Skyworld by smashing anyone who stands in your way with unstoppable armies consisting of units that can destroy entire islands! This game is a real time strategy game. Therefore it is very important that the player can navigate and do everything with a minimal amount of input. This makes the game fast paced and very easy to handle. To further increase the simplicity the player is able to form fleets consisting of several units. This makes it possible to select and manage loads of units at the same time. The player starts with an island where he has his headquarters. As the game progresses the player can build new buildings and accumulate resources to build an army. The player can send his units to other islands to capture and colonize them. The opposing factions will try to do the same so it does't take long before conflict arises. When either of the factions does't control any more islands, the game ends and the other factions wins. The gameplay video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXex0iQvr68

  • 3d Anaglyph

    Some days ago I ordered some 3d Anaglyph glasses with red and cyan colored glass. I have't a sample ready to show from my own work but I added a Anaglyph render option to my game engine. The effect is quite a thrill and gives a different feel and experience while playing. So expect some samples and demo's in several days!

  • Mizzu

    This piece of art was inspirated by Miru from Edalie-chan and Zoe who's on the beach! :D (You're such a good source for ideas!). The idea was to try out some bathsuits... Well it ended as a person without a bathsuit but underwear I gues ^^ Time needed 2 hours and I did't make a sketch! Updated the photoviewer with Aniako and Mizzu.

  • SciFiWorld

    After the museum remake I was turned into a modelling mood. In this mood I started a simple scene and tried to get better effects. After I found Gile[s] I started trying some lightmaps. It turned out great although rendering lightmaps takes more time than expected. The scene is no longer only test. It even starts to look like something!

  • Old high school projects

    Last night I found some old pieces of high school projects. They will be available in my portfolio soon. After inspecting the pieces I decided to remake one of them. I upgraded this one from the Irrlicht 0.15.0 to 1.5+. Also the model is recreated. the assignment was to make pictures from a city and to present those to the class. I got the idea to use on of my earlier game frameworks to present those. The images left are from 2006 and the others the remake I finished today (2009).
