Danger Planet

Fantasy Lab, the company that released that Rhinork global illumination demo last summer, has released a screenshot from the first game utilizing their Fantasy Engine, Danger Planet. The company president is Mike Bunnell, the guy who wrote the GPU Gems 2 article on modeling light transfer and occlusion based on disc-to-disc form factors. The technique they are using for indirect light is no doubt based on the method in GPU Gems, but likely with many improvements. One image is sort of a disappointment.I’m dying to see a video, preferably with some ray gun blast lighting!

    After I initially left a comment I appear to
    have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from

    you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks!
