Appijo’s 2nd Generation Graphics Engine

We’re pleased to announce the birth of the next itteration of our in-house mobile graphics engine! dScene2 (formerly deepScene) brings high-performance 3D graphics, special effects, super-fast collisions and advanced particle systems to our game development toolkit. While our engine has always been a capable 3D & 2D framework, previous games have only taken advantage of […]

DevLog #011 – Performance Update

Reducing Vertex Bandwidth Overhead After weeks of optimizing our voxel game engine, we still weren’t getting the kind of frame-rate we needed, so the decision was made to finally switch to using VBO‘s (Vertex Buffer Objects) to pass data to the GPU instead of passing vertex arrays every frame. This predictably improved performance a great […]
