Pixel & Vertex Shader Support NVIDIA and ATI's powerful new graphics cards have inspired us to support both Pixel and Vertex shaders. You have full and direct control of these awesome hardware effects from within DarkBASIC Professional. Pixel Shaders are used to alter lighting and surface effects that replace artificial, computerized looks with materials and surfaces that mimic reality.
Vertex Shaders are used to breathe life and personality into characters and environments. For example, through vertex shading you can create true-to-life dimples or wrinkles that appear when a character smiles or you can ripple shockwaves through a land matrix. The illustration above shows 6 different DarkBASIC Professional shaders in action.
Commercial Quality Games A lot of developers like to create and then self-publish their games, offering them for sale from their web sites. One such high-class example written in DarkBASIC Professional is 3D Mahjong. The quality level of graphics, sound and extreme playability showcase perfectly just what DarkBASIC Professional is capable of.
Features All games created with DarkBASIC Professional are License and Royalty free.
All games can be distributed as a stand alone executable.
Well, the last weeks were quite a ride for us!
We were asked if we are insane (Spoiler Alert: Yes, we are!).
We gifted 150 keys to various charities.
We got a lot of more positive feedback, we are still at 80+ % positive reviews here on Steam.
We got some catchy review tag-lines like "9 / 10, would shag the sheep again" or "Dear Esther and Myst on Crystal Meth".
Press & Radio have covered us in a somehow positive way...
...or in a really positive way...
...or in an insane positive way:
No haters yet. This and the fact that we were put onto the same stage as "Dear Esther", "Firewatch" or "Myst", could cloud (haha, no typo here!) our judgement. When an editor tells us he wished that goat simulator had the fulfilled its promise like we did with our games, it is suspicious. Especially as we liked that one (not the copycats, though). And when we read Father's Island being called a candidate for the game of the year, we panic. I mean, WTF?!
Perhaps we have really sacrified too many of our firstborns?!
Have they stolen our creativity-enhancing substances during the last studio visit?
Well, we get it, most of you like our game. And we are very happy and grateful for that. We see that also as a work order to imrpove the game, to make it better, more beautiful, more enjoyable and especially also more accessable for those who still struggle with some elements.
And that's why we have quite something prepared for the next update, version 1.07, coming in the next days.
However, you can get a free ticket to the show:
During the creation of the upcoming 1.07 version, we made a little side stroll through the woods and created a playable demo. As it is partially already based on the 1.07 code / shaderbase, it gives also a brief insight into the upcoming version.
What is this DEMO for?
If you like it - get it the full game for only $5 or the Ultimate Conspiracy Bundle for only $10:
Father's Island has received praise and overwhelmingly postive feedback - as well as two extensive updates!
