An Indie Game Dares to Build Planets
The goal of Outerra and their indie game project is to create a “3D planetary engine for seamless planet rendering from space down to the surface.” This means allowing you to create the planet, then fly down to the surface without having to wait to load. You’ll be able to go from orbit to surface, where you can then play around with other 3D objects and vehicles to test different parts of the planet’s physics.
It’s one small step for man, one giant leap for planet-building based video games. We’ll be watching like it’s the Apollo 11 launch.
