Testing my game engine in Chromium. Available for testing now. Try it out!

Hi,
As many following my progress know I am about to release a very early (pre alpha) demo of Phoenix USC very soon. I have uploaded a 2D / 3D (with lighting) demo testing Alien Phoenix (used by Phoenix USC), the new game engine I have been designing. This test will help to ensure the upcoming demo release of Phoenix USC goes smoothly. You can help by testing the web based demo listed below. It should run great in Chrome and it will give you a look at the performance and interface used by Phoenix USC.

The demo features a test of both 3D and 2D with lighting effects. It also uses Alien Phoenix's window based GUI. A very cool experience in a web browser. Just click on the link below and the demo should run in your web browser. If you have any problems try reloading the demo.

Alien Phoenix 2D / 3D game engine test - Web Based.

I am making wonderful progress toward getting a very early demo of Phoenix USC available to all. I'll be working hard to try and get it out in the next few weeks. Till then try out the Alien Phoenix game engine test and get a taste of what is to come. :D

Hi,
I have some Html5 examples of the kinds of lighting and shadow FX being added to Phoenix USC posted on my website. I just received Monkey X's (programming language) mojo2 which is its new 2D engine.

Can't wait to include these effects in game. :)

Hi,
I should have the Linux build out in a few days. Saturday is the target (3/28/15). For now the Linux demo should be considered a tad experimental in that is difficult to predict what issues might occur across all the different Linux configurations. Generally though most should have no issues.

Hi,

The patch is almost done. I've decided to add 10% more zoom out on display as well as add a 'hide' feature to 'Global Chat' (IRC Chat) that will let you stay in session will it's hidden. I'm also adjusting player ships weapons with a little more fire power.

Up soon.
