IOTD: Myst clone
Myst clone
Myst clone, by hazul

Here's a couple of scenes from a Myst clone i'm working on. It currently features prerendered 640x480 images with animations as MPG videos ( Thanks to Kitty Cat for APEG ;)) I'm using LUA for the scripting, although that part isn't really finished yet.

What I will add next is: Full scripting, more scenes + a storyline, sound effects / ambience and music.

Tell me what you think :)
Looks great so far! I'm guessing that this game is going to be sci-fi. What rendering program are you using? I'm actually working on a Myst type game myself... but I'm using Quake 2. - mystiscool
The graphics look wonderful. I can't judge the game, obviously, but the graphics look schweet.

At first I thought it was a 3D game :p - William Heatley
At first I thought it was real-time 3D too.

It still looks impressive though, nice work. - Gnatinator
It would be pretty cool if it was realtime 3d instead of prerendered. But if you can keep up the same level of detail through out the game, it should turn out pretty nice. - smitty werbenjuegermanjenson
Simply great! - jorram

Cool so it can have alien devices and maybe mummies, in fact maybe it could be linked to egypt, like their race is either from egypt or visited egypt, give it some kind of really eerie "it could happen" feel

Um, stargate anyone? Anyway, looks pretty good! Too bad it can't be done in real time yet, though...

Heh, what would be funny is to have a diamentional distort or something and use cel-shaded everything... Ah, I'm ranting now. Lookin' good! - Carrus85
Not too bad! Although if you're using pre-renderings, my advice to you is to kick up that poly count! By the way, what program are you using to model/render? - Michael A. Johnson
With AllegroGL and astute shader scripting that might've been possible to pull off realtime.

Looking good, tho'. - theakx
That does indeed look super cool! I thought it was 3D as well ;D. I'm not much of a fan of Myst games, but this one looks damn cool. I'll at least try it out, but don't be offended if I don't like it, it's just not my genre. - Synapse Jumps
WOW !
It's too cool :) - Andrea Nardinocchi
Thanks for the positive replies. I could do it realtime, but it would not look as good. Realtime raytraced reflections and reflections along with full-screen antialiasing might work in 2020, but not just yet :)

The game will be sci-fi style in the beginning at least, but I've thought of making the spaceship crashland to a planet with, of course, ruins ;) - hazul

Look´s really great. Have you already released a demo and where can we get it from when it is finished? - Philipp Heßler

3ds max.

No demo yet. I have very little time to even be near a computer so progress is slow :) I'll give you people a link when I get something solid to show. - hazul
