Oh, thank you so much! I'm so happy it worked for you.

Thanks, yea. Godot is the best!

Wow, thanks! It means a lot to me.

Thanks a bunch. Really appreciate the kind words.

Thanks so much! This uses Godot 3.4.4.

I love the visual aesthetic, but it doesn't really make sense. I figured out that you want to bounce off the triangles, but this isn't explained and doesn't feel right. It also looks like she is getting hurt. Also, the controls are really clunky and hard to use. It seems choppy and it's hard to move. It would be better if you could smoothly rotate around and not feel like you are fighting the camera. Also more visual cues that what you are doing is good or bad. It's hard to tell right now if you are supposed to go into the eye or not. But it's a great start, and the visuals are there, you just need to work on the gameplay.

That's great to hear. Yeah, I pushed the settings too far on the original version, but I think my tweaks look even better and get much more performance. I'm glad the GTX 1060 works, most of my test rigs are newer so I had to do some guessing with the presets.

That's awesome! Thanks so much for letting me know. The latest patch had some huge performance increases, so I can get 144 fps solid on both my machines (RX 6800 XT and a RTX 3060).

Best game ever! The graphics, the story, the scares. So well done. I actually liked that it was short and to the point. I have other stuff going on in my life, I don't have time to play the same game for 3,000 hours.

I love this game so much. The art and story are original, it is really something different. The music was perfect. And it felt like an honest experience (I assume it was autobiographical). Really a great job. Thanks so much for sharing this.

For sure. I think I will take a break from making another demo and focus on some tutorials for the next few weeks so people can see how I did this. It actually wasn't difficult at all.

Thanks for watching. Yes, it is a high end demo and designed more for desktop graphics cards. It should run at 60 fps at 1080p on a GTX 1060 or RX 580.

Slower machines can work, but not at high resolution. With your screen, even on lowest settings 50% render scale, it's still pushing 1440p, which would need something more like an RX 5700 XT or RTX 2070 Super to get 60 fps. 

Because I realized this, I made the default window size smaller (1600 x 900) that way more people could at least see the demo on a variety of machines, though only in a window.

I'm so glad you liked it. Thanks a bunch for checking out the demo and for sharing your kind words.

Sorry, there is only an FPS counter. No other stats. But I can tell you that the full scene is 5.4 million polygons. The Ella character model is 100,000 polygons and uses an 8K texture. Most of the other textures are 2K or below. Hope that's what you were looking for.

Yeah, that's a great idea. I can look into it. Thanks for watching.

Thanks so much. I am humbled by your words.

Thanks so much. Yeah, it's a pretty fly pad.

LOL, yeah. I'll have to write a tutorial at some point. Maybe I'll do that next. Thanks for your support.

Yes, I agree the reflection quality is not state of the art, but I think it still looks okay and if your use proper PBR materials with roughness it can actually appear pretty nice. However, sharp mirror-like reflections may not be the best quality. Even so, I think it's good enough for an indie game. Thanks for watching.

Thank you so much. I really wanted to show the community what was possible. Godot is great!

Yes, that is what I have planned for the 4.0 release. However my last two demos have used licensed artwork and I need to be able to release the source project files. So I'll have to make my own art, but I think I have some time before 4.0 is released.

So I've been using Godot for 2 years, I didn't do any tutorials, but I read some books and the documentation. However, I have been programming games for 25 years and used just about every engine before switching to Godot. However, if you want a recommendation you should check GDQuest. They have the best tutorials.

That's for checking it out. Yeah, I want to work on a game eventually, so far I've just been doing graphics tests.

Thanks for your kind words. Yeah, I've been really impressed with Godot now that I am getting more comfortable with it. I will have to make a tutorial at some point. The things I did here were not difficult, but they took time and a lot of it is an artistic choice rather than anything technical. But I should be able to write up some tips.

Thanks a ton! Yeah, some people on social media didn't click on it cause they thought it was an ad for yoga, lol.

Awesome! Thanks so much for doing the video and for your kind words.

I've just released Ella : a study in realism. This is a project I created in Godot 3.4.2 and made in one week. It uses global illumination for 100% real time lighting (no baked lightmaps) and art created with photogrammetry for the highest possible realism. It is a short music video kind of graphics demo, but you can also fly around with the camera and adjust options to optimize for your computer.

Thank you, that was the idea.

Thank you so much. I love Linux as well and developed this whole thing on Ubuntu.

Thank you so much! Really appreciate the kind words.

Decay is a graphics demo I have been working on in Godot Engine for about a month. You are able to watch a cinematic camera for a few minutes, or fly around with the mouse and keyboard, while listening to some great music. I really wanted to push the graphics and show people what kind of 3D art was possible in Godot 3.4. Really enjoyed working on this and I hope everyone in the community has a good time testing their gaming PC with this demo.

Best game ever!

This sounds almost like a prank, but I like it.

Thanks a bunch for the detailed response. That makes perfect sense.

This looks awesome! Can't wait to play the game. Also, quick question, can you explain how you made the checkerboard shadows in Godot? Thanks in advance.

This is so awesome. Really good performance too.

This game was so good. Loved the pixelated style and reminded me a lot of Metroid on DS. Somehow the low-fi style made me imagine it looked a lot better, sort of like reading a book and filling in the blanks. Great job.
