Zlythy Team

I was fortunate enough to stumble into a real live, experienced game programmer on deviantART! I guess dA is finally useful for something after all these years. His name is Steven Tomlinson and lives in the UK. I believe this is his first indie project however he's work on quite a few AAA games on all the major consoles for the last 15 years as well as PC. Most of his experience is with Windows. However, we are going to be using cross platform, open source componenets so it should be fairly easy to port to Mac and Linux. We are moving from Blender Game Engine to Ogre a proprietary 3d engine that Steven created. I will still be using Blender to create all my 3d assets. Other components we will be using are Bullet for physics and OIS for input. We still need to decide on the audio engine. Maybe OpenAL? I have no clue at this point.

I also have a guy doing some soundscaping. Mattias Häggström Gerdt from Sweden. Here's a demo track he did for me: Zlythy 1v2.mp3
Listen to his music and be sure to download his awesomely chill, free album "We Express Ourselves With T-Shirts" -

This is a big shift. I'm part of a team now. I've quickly gone from one guy to a three person team spread across Europe! This is really cool! :D
