PostSubject: Reincarnations: Uncover the Past released   Fri Aug 27, 2010 10:29 am

Hello everyone,
I'm here to announce release of our 2D casual hidden object adventure game, Reincarnations: Uncover the Past, which is available on http://bigfishgames.com as Collector's Edition since today, and in 2 weeks standard edition will follow.

See intro video, few screen shots and download free 1 hour of gameplay here:
http://www.bigfishgames.com/download-games/9006/reincarnations-uncover-the-past-collectors

The game is made using:
* Irrlicht DirectX8 driver as renderer, with minor modifications, related to mouse cursor handling and added support of DXT compressed textures (source for that I have posted in Advanced Help section of Irrlicht official forum)
* Irrklang as sound
* Python 2.6 Stackless as scripting language
* SPARK for particle engine, also I've created GUI editor for SPARK, its announced on SPARK forums, if you were interested. Examples of particle systems used in game are all included into SimpleSpark archive.

Right now I'm working on MacOSX port of the game, so libSimpleSpark gets some MacOSX love too (refactoring and adjusting code so it compiles on both MSVC and GCC4)

Cool ! I'll have a look at the demo version when I'll have time.

I ve tried the demo and the game looks great. Very pleasant to play. Particles are well integrated within the scenes. Well done.

Hope you enjoyed seeing your work used in a good project.

But how the SPARK was created?
Did you write some game yourself and it needed a particle engine?

At first I created SPARK to get back to C++/OpenGL programming after a while spent doing java on mobile devices with dedicated 3D API. It was to set up some personal demos to show off.

Then I made the engine open source and distributed it as there was not that much totally free particle engine in C++ out there.

I kept updating and improving it as I think particle rendering offers interesting challenges in optimization, modularity and genericity. But after adding a lot of blocks to a relatively small project at the beginning, I am finally redesigning it completely in a second version to come.

Yes I used it in some personal projects of mine but never professionally (I didnt really get the occasion so far).
