    Oh my god. That's a Homebrew? other than the crappy font, I would have thought that was a commercial game.

    View distance aside, this actually looks BETTER than many commercial games.

    Good work to the author. [​IMG]

    Looks very nice. The whole background/city/area is from Neverwinter Nights. I knew it was from somewhere! Even so it looks very good.

    its nothing much at the moment. has no boundaries as of yet. you can just walk off the side and you will begin to fall. has basic movement, a kick, a he makes a cheeky hand nose action thing. you use l/r triggers to zoom in zoom out, use the touch screen to rotate. and thats about it.

    No, actually, you can select the other characters around the city and play as them too.
