First video showcase of Io, a 3d platformer where you can create platforms, dig tunnels and solve puzzles using digital clay.

Posted by on

This is the first video showcase of our upcoming game, Io. In Io you play as a spacefarer, marooned on a strange planet, determined to find his way home. Armed with a handy "clay gun", you're able to draw and erase clay in-game. The clay can be used to solve various puzzles, create platforms and dig tunnels.

i was always wondering how real-time model drawing works? does it have to do something with meta balls? Any keywords for google could help me out find an answer, thanks
Don't worry, not interested in making this, just curious to death, how is it achieved

@raymix:
We are using an algorithm called marching cubes to generate the clay.

Great trailer, very fun game mechanic. Raymix that feature looks to be done by drawing using voxels in real-time onto the enviroment.

Cool game. Too bad you have to be in a confided area to use the gun to create matter since if you didn't the player would basically jump outside the intended area they are suppose to explore. I wonder if there is a way to solve that.
