Elementary Torture

Screen shot

This isn't exactly a game as such, but I still think you'll find it fun to play around with. I came up with the idea when GameDev.net had a contest to create an interactive 3D scene around the four elements Earth, Water, Wind and Fire. This was my entry to that contest, with a bit of a sick sense of humour. It did pretty well and I reached second place, just 0.058 points short of winning a GeForce 2. Here are some of the judges' comments:

  • Very original.
  • I laughed hard at this one.
  • Cool lightning and tornado.

Note: This program runs under OpenGL. A fast accelerated video card is definitely recommended. Some really old chipset/driver combinations make Elementary Torture display incorrect colours and run very slowly.
