Space Game

First posted on January 10th, 2011 by jdc15 | No Comments »

This project was started in 2006. Today it is no longer actively developed. The space game is a project powered by the Irrlicht 3d engine was coded entirely in C++. All of the 3d models were created and animated in Blender. Gimp was used for texturing. In the game, hundreds of planets exist in a persistent universe. You start out on your home planet, the only one where you can walk around. You, from there, can enter the ship garage and fly into outer space, exploring the solar system. You can then land on other planets. Each planet has its own unique surface features and atmosphere. If you’re done exploring that solar system, you can explore the galaxy and move on to others. Currently, that’s all that there is to it.
