Join us at for a 30 min playtest this Saturday, 4th of Apr, 2015 at 3pm Central US, 4pm East US, 8pm UTC/GMT, 9pm UK (Desktop browser, mouse and keyboard)

Wanted to share a quick video of our new lighting system coming for the next playtest.

The video has a split screen with the current lighting on the right, and the new lighting on the left. Some of the new lighting was previewed in the last test, but only on the asteroids, and the rest of the set was lit with ambient occlusion only.

The new lighting includes:

  • Environmental ambient lighting
  • Directional lighting
  • Specular highlights
  • Bump mapping
  • Rim Lighting

The difference is quite noticable, though it does look better onscreen than in the video!

Hope to see you then!
