Pixel City

This is a demonstration of a program I wrote to generate and fly through a dynamically generated city. You can read the step-by-step of how it was made at my website.

  • The program was built on vanilla OpenGL, Windows, using MS DevStudio 6.0
  • Building the city takes about 5 seconds.
  • Took about 50 hours of coding time.
  • Runs on older hardware. The goal was to have the program work on Windows machines less than 5 years old.
  • To be released as a Windows screensaver.

    This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. Very nice work!

    I should make it clear, since the post may not be so clear, that we did not do this. Visit the creator’s site here:
