This article describes problems we faced during the creation of iOS tutorial in May 2017.
This February we managed to get simple model rendered under iOS in just a few days. We expected to finish iOS tutorial in no time. However, the reality reminded us: it’s easy to come up with a hackish demo that works for one person, but it’s hard to create a concise example that works for everyone.
This article describes creation of the tutorials for building sample OpenSceneGraph application under Linux, macOS, Windows, and Android in April 2017.
This article describes creation of the first four OpenSceneGraph tutorials in March 2017.
In this article we describe our progress in January and February of 2017: rendering under iOS/Web and a new tutorial tool.
This article describes our plans for 2017.
Okay. It’s been a hard year for everyone in the team. And it’s almost over. Praise it ends! Praise the new one!
It may seem, that our progress stalled. Three years ago we announced the beginning of a new project (two to be precise), and now we still working on the engine and editor, haven’t even started creating the actual game.
If you were monitoring our news during the year, you know that we held several live sessions, showing in the real time how to use our tools to create some simple games. Each session was a step in a long road to our goal. While preparing for these live sessions, we added necessary building blocks, that will be needed to create almost any game.
Future live sessions and technical previews will add even more, so at some point in future (i hope not very distant), we will have everything we need to sit down and build our planned game from these blocks.
So, the project isn’t dead; the idea was not thrown away. But there is a lot of work to be done before we can start making the game, and there are only two of us, using our spare time.
So. You want our game to become a reality? Join us. Together we will rule the galaxy. Or just wait and see. We didn’t stop several years ago. We won’t stop now.
After all, there is only one way to create a fine tool (and it’s our initial goal if you remember) – we need to use it ourselves.
We will. Stay tuned.
Happy 2017. Let it be simple.

This article describes how we spent a month building OpenSceneGraph (OSG) for Android: the first attempt to build OSG, the search for OSG alternatives, and the success in building OSG.
In this article, we take another look at 2015-2016 live sessions’ format and introduce a new showcase format for 2017.
This article explains September 2016 live session stages: draft, rehearsal, live session itself, and publishing.
Even though live session takes only a few hours, we devote a whole month to prepare for it. Let’s have a look at live session stages in detail.
