    3D Game in 96 KB

    Thats right, this is a fully playable 3D game in just 96 KB! It makes all its textures and levels on the fly. It is truly incredible... music, lights, textures, levels, enemies, gameplay, effects, music, vertex shaders... wow. Sound effects are gay though.

    You really need a fast computer to play this. It takes forever to load. Each screenshot you download is bigger than the game itself haha! Check the readme.

    Same here. I remember the demo for this a while ago looked pretty cool. Never thought they'd ever make a game from it.

    WOW. It really goes to show what people are capable of. how is it possible to store such massive maps and all those models in 96k? the coders of this game are gurus no doubt. That one spider with horns is going to give me nightmares...

    All the textures were painstakingly hardcoded and generated on the fly, I believe.

    I know the guy who made this at another board - yes, everything's generated on the fly, which is why it takes such a powerhouse

    Yes, very impressive. All the textures are procedural and they use a custom version of upx exe compressor to get the incredible size.

    upx is such a great app. I highly recommend it. Look it up and mess with it.

    There are no pre-made textures, sounds, etc... it is all created by the game as you play.
