When a strange signal is detected in deep space the Federation orders Smith and Winston to go and investigate. What they find, after a brief nap, is a shattered ring world, aliens and an evil overlord called the VOID.

  • Fully destructible everything.
  • Two player couch Co-Op.
  • Humorous storyline.
  • Explosions, with extra explosions.
  • Twin stick combat.
  • Metroid style exploration.

After crashing in to the ring world, due to a slight navigation error involving hitting an asteroid, you guide Smith and Winston through this strange new world.

Shippy, your ship, is there to help or maybe she's there to kill you? Who knows? Either way, if you're going to get home for another nap you'll need to collect power cubes to repair Shippy!

Looks pretty awesome. In what language are you developing this?

We're using C++ for the engine, lua for the scripting, python for the utilities and English for the chatting :)

There is some more info on our engine here if you're interested: Executionunit.com

Haha. Your article motivated me even more to make my own engine. I recently started dabbling with opengl. I'm using opengl with glut. How much different would it be to use bgfx for rendering? I'm a newbie in graphics programming.
Btw, your editor looks awesome.

BGFX isn't easy for a beginner IMHO. It's a great API but it's quite advanced and pretty low level. I'd stick with OpenGL/GLUT and when you've learned some more and are starting a new project dabble with BGFX.

Glad my blog helped to motivate you :) Keep working and you'll get there, we all start at the beginning :)
