Recently I watched the very nice movie "A royal affair", which has a character called "Rantzau". A local church was also build by a "Rantzau" and I wondered, how they are connected. Wikipedia, a PDF, google books and the website finally reconstructed the links between the two. The internet stays awesome. :)


Wloom 14: WebGl Run

This WebGl game demo is inspired by Temple Run and similar games. The protagonist runs along beziercurves, must collect gems and avoid foes. The demo ought to run smooth on mobile devices using simple WebGl rendering and on desktop with more graphics effects via three.js or glge. A various number of input controls is supported (if device and browser has it): keyboard, mouse, touch, tilt and gamepad.


Update 9.10.2013: Got an oculus rift device and added a Three.js render mode for it. If you have the device and a browser plugin installed, virtual reality is there.
