A downloadable game for Windows

This started as a 14-day game for #LowRezJam 2016. 13 months later it evolved into a complex sandbox engine. I was  a tad too late submitting anything to the 2016 game jam, but I did make 2 games with it: Wet Hack and Fatal Attraction, but then stopped development for a few years. I've compiled what I have and uploaded as-is for everyone to try it out.

This is written in C++ using Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL2). Pixels are rendered directly to a texture by means of raytracing through the matrix of voxels. It needs to be re-written from the ground up before using it to make another game.

make that you can make 3d objects and spawn them on map, not as charter.

Was bored and searched up "sandbox physics" on YouTube, then i found your video. It's quite nice actually, but i dont think performance would be that great on weak computers. Still, keep up the good work.

Thanks for showing interest. I'm planning to start working on this again soon, so I hope you can follow the progress with me. I already did a lot of work on it since this project and it's come a long way. It's very fast now, even on weaker CPUs:

That's quite great! I'll try to follow with the progress while i can. <3

Ah, too bad, it looks nice! I had a similar problem with my game. I totally underestimated the needed time for it, and while I published a working game, it's far from what I planned. I had to cut out many things from it.

I really enjoy reading the development log.

Thanks Adam, I'm currently re-working the whole thing to smooth everything out - it'll take time, but the result will be worth it. Watch this space. Noticed your game, too. Love the lighting effect, how did you do it? Raycasting?
