This past Saturday marked the 20th anniversary of id Software’s legendary FPS game, Wolfenstein 3D. You can play a browser version of the game and for a limited period of time iOS users can download Wolfenstein 3D Classic Platinum for free on iTunes.No Comments »
Voxelstein 3D is an FPS game inspired by Wolfenstein 3D. The game uses Ken Silverman’s VOXLAP engine to render voxels in software. The levels in the game are fully destructible – and by fully we mean fully.
The game world is built from tiny cubes called voxels. There are over 37 million in the first level. Rendering a world like this is slow (especially without hardware acceleration), but there is an advantage: voxels can be added, removed or otherwise altered very very quickly. This enables all kinds of cool stuff, including fully destructible worlds!
