It's been almost a year since my interest on Discord dwindled and updates were no longer being posted. Meanwhile I had been working on a new 3d engine for most of this year and a couple months from the previous year. Despite Unity being a great engine and very capable of this game, I have decided to use my custom engine for it and put a more organized effort.
These are the consequences/benefits of the engine change that I expect to see.
- No longer playable on the web.
- Will now support Linux because the engine uses cross platform APIs such as SDL and OpenGL. (unity might support Linux now too, but I'm not entirely sure)
- More optimizations possible because I have access to the source code of the actual engine.
- A boost in mod-ability because of the previous reason.
Game-play should stay similar to the old version of Discord.
