Falco Girgis announces that Elysian Shadows Tool Kit (with ESGamma lighting engine) will be given away for free to all who order Elysian Shadows on Kickstarter. ESTk is basically a next generation 2D/3D hybrid game engine which can be used to make add on content for ES or even your own game.

Elysian Shadows has raised over a 100,000$ and still has 11 days to go before the Kickstarter ends the projected goal for the game is 150,000$ so they still have a long road ahead.

New Open GL API Released

Posted by PH3NOM on Aug 16, 2014 at 2:45pm - 39 Comments

Hello everyone, today I announce the public release of the new Open GL API for KOS that I have been working on!

I want to say thank you to those who have been following, and encouraging me along the way.
Also, thank you to the creators and maintainers of KOS, for allowing such things to be possible.

You will need the latest version of KOS for this API, as the API has introduced changes to KOS along the way.

You can get the library here:

And the example code here:

Initially, my plan was to create a faster implementation of the API, and a better Z clipping mechanism.
That has certainly been accomplished, every vertex here is being run through my Z clipping algorithm:

However, I realized some more things could be done. I added Dynamic Vertex Lighting:

And Render-To-Texture is also now a part of the API:

Things wouldn't be complete without exposing the use of the PVR's FOG capabilities:

Maybe in the future we will see some 4 player spilt screen 3D homebrew using this API?

Elysian Shadows Kickstarter Live NOW!

Posted by |darc| on Aug 01, 2014 at 1:08pm - 41 Comments

After a few delays this morning, the much anticipated Kickstarter campaign to fund Elysian Shadows has finally gone live!


The rewards for funding the project stretch from a simple thank you to digital goodies related to the game, beta access, physical and signed copies of the game, Adventures in Game Development on DVD and other limited edition physical goodies, all the way up to being able to contribute your own ideas (items, NPCs, enemies, etc.) to Elysian Shadows, getting to meet the team in person at their home base in Huntsville, AL, and if you're really feeling generous, a custom Dreamcast or Ouya console, and even an original painting of a scene from the game!


Read the Kickstarter and open your wallet! I have already pledged a large sum. I'm personally hoping we hit that mark for the user generated content, which will certainly have a huge impact on our scene (as if the main game won't already!).
