  1. New engine features

    What's new in the Apus Game Engine:

    Texture arrays. A texture array is similar to a 3D texture, but the array elements are indexed using integers. Texture arrays are useful for rendering objects with skins, tiles, etc. These arrays are more convenient and natural than texture atlases.

    Manual mip-maps. Previously, the engine only supported auto-generated mip-map levels. Now the number and content of mip-levels can be set manually. It's especially convenient for visual debugging.

  2. New engine release: Engine4

    Just published a new version of Astral Towers game which is built on the 4-th generation API of my Apus Game Engine (Engine4). The game works under Windows and Linux and uses SDL2 library for system management and input processing.

Started using C to tie my assembly routines together, and later used it as a high level language to make ...

    It's been a while since I've written a blog on PGD. I thought I would at least give it a try tonight.

    I just finished a session of hacking away at my latest project, Garland's Quest. This game has actually been in productions since 2006 and boy has it really come a long way. I just wonder how it would have turned out at this time if only I had been able to work on it full time. Nonetheless, it is starting to look really good and it's ...
  5. Garland's Quest Redux & Stranded

    Hey everybody!

    Been hard at work at my day job and on the new house. Both have left me not too much time for supporting the PGD community, however it has left me with a little bit of personal time to work on some of my special projects such as Garland's Quest, which recently has been taken on as a budgeted commercial game project. I've already hired a professional artist and musician who have been coming up with some great stuff for the game's complete make-over. The other big project ...
