First and foremost, this game is an experiment in coding a software renderer. It’s an engine that renders the image via CPU, without involving the graphics adapter, much like the 90’s games did. I wanted to find out if it’s possible to code an engine like that from scratch nowadays, and if it can run at 60 FPS on a modern PC. It was a self-imposed challenge.
Once I finished the engine, I thought I could make a game with it, an FPS like the early shooters from the 90’s. I have to say I was quite impressed with them back in the day, and I’ve been looking to recreate them for a long time. Thus, this game is a 90’s FPS. A simplistic story takes a backseat to pure run-and-gun gameplay.
On graphics and visuals: I was creating the visuals based on the imagery from my dreams. I tried to convey the mood and atmosphere of my dreams through level design. I feel like I did a particularly good job on this aspect.
I’d be happy to hear some feedback from you on my humble little game!
