Excel-ent 3D Engines

You may have guessed by the relatively few posts in the latter part of the week, half of RPS have been off having adventures. So I’m playing a little catch up, before sodding off again (Romania!). While if I had any sense I’d say something about the Sims 3’s announcement, something in Gamasutra’s latest has charmed me, so I’ll do that instead. Insane Hungarian coder Peter Rakos as got a 3D engine working in Excel. That is, literally, a 3D engine. Watch!

He spends five pages of Gamasutra explaining how he did it, which I haven’t read. He said something about sub-pixel grids and a sub-pixel grid once crashed into my house and killed my family, so it brought back bad memories. I hate you, sub-pixel grids.
