    Wow, that actually looks pretty good. Dynamic-ish shadows and everything. But it does seem to have some pretty horrendous clipping issues with the camera, and closing my DSi killed it. Everything screwed up on the screen and it crashed. Weird, the DSi seems to have all these strange problems with cutting-edge homebrew.

    ...huh, the more I look at it, the more impressive it seems to get. Like...sorta dynamic lighting and everything. It actually seems to look better than your average commercial game, though it's really unpolished...the camera's horrible and clips through all the geometry. But still, I'm impressed. It'd be pretty cool if they could take advantage of external RAM packs, if possible...dunno how it's set up, or how fast they are though.

    what would be really cool is if it could be ported to DSi and use its extra ram and cpu power and then we ha ve a morowind like game on DS

    I'll donate £3 if they rename it Fandrian. [​IMG]

    The engine is actually a lot better than most DSI/Zoo Digital 3D games. I hope the person who is doing this could one day get a job with a dev team or something one day.
