"Dread" - DOOM-alike for base Amigas in development
« on: April 21, 2020, 02:34:11 PM »
I just became aware of "Dread" being worked on by YT user KK/Altair. I discovered it in this video, which is mainly showing his non-Amiga-based (I presume) level editor, but it shows the engine running the levels he's making in the video.

All things point to this being an unaccelerated Amiga 500. I can't imagine how such a machine can run something like this at such a frame rate. Has anyone seen this demo run on an Amiga in person / is it out there?

(I've been running accelerated and unaccelerated Amigas for most of the 35 years they've been with us, and so this demo is kind of jawdropping.)

As kindly asked by the developers please share the video link, not the download link.😉

A stock/base A500 does not have 1Mb RAM.

Wow! Amazing job getting a game like this running so fast on an Amiga 500! 8) I remember longing for first person shooters like thi sback in the 90's, but most of them required turbo-cards to run properly. This one would have a been a huge hit I think.
