Well done, but of course would be a lot better with music and perhaps more variation.

I cynically wonder how much of the source from You Massive Clod is in the linux version of this but the result is neat!

I'll release the a C source for your intro later - because you suck not releasing the source, just decompressed it - nice shader. :D

Two nicely combined oldschool effects. Good for 1k, but also a little dull.

After having a short look at the binary - it seems that you only modified the shader - which is nice anyways. I know that you gave credits - it's okay - but I somehow feel like releasing your part of the source to the community (It's open in the binary anyways - I have a C code here that runs with the shader - will release that on demand):

added on the 2009-03-15 23:49:01 by las las
las, I think they removed SDL_Quit too. That might explain why it doesn't restore my desktop resolution... ;)
I'll make it easier for you and release the complete sourcecode (took me two minutes with the clod source and your binary) - here you go:

What a pleasant effect, probably even more so with beefier hardware (just a tad of smoothness and fluidity missing).

Hi, i made a Javascript version, that uses sphere tracing, instead of step tracing with sub steps like the original, after some tuning the sphere algorithm is at least 2x faster. So with all this speed i made a JS version LOL. You can find the JS version here. :)
