So someone sent me a link to a freeware Star Wars game some guy from Spain did using Visual Basic and a freeware 3D engine.
Very primitive models, music ripped straight from the Star Wars trilogy, mouse control is kinda hinky…
… HOLY CRAP I JUST FLEW THROUGH A FORMATION OF SIXTY TIE FIGHTERS!
So. Download the Battle of Endor and learn some lessons about how it doesn’t require the latest 3D engine and quad-mapped texture shaders to induce a sense of scale that borders on wonderment.
