Hi there XL2, i really appreciate your hard work with Z-treme, it has been a real dream come true. It´s a shame that you do not decide to continue with that project, but the important thing here is that you do what you really like and I trust that Z-treme has served you a lot to know and improve your programming skills on Saturn.
If I'm honest, fps are my favorite genre and I'm very excited about your new project, by the way, do you have a name for it?
Thanks again for your immense contribution, I look forward to your videos in yt.

 Thanks. Sadly, no name yet as Im working on the engine, but I have the general plot and gameplay in mind.
It will be similar to Quake in style (but for gameplay I will have to chose between 2 types) and I aim for a fully 3d world (including enemies).
I will focus on the engine for the next few months, but it's a much more complex engine than in Sonic Z-Treme, with also much improved graphics.
This is an older version (I've since improved the framerate), which was also glitchy (weird dancing verts), with improper collision (the rotating star thing), no gameplay, etc.
But it gives you an idea of the engine's complexity and major improvements in lighting.

Hello! Is there any possibility of X-Treme coming back at some moment?
I'd love to see a game with the Adventure style on the saturn too :)
Cheers and good luck with the FPS project! It's visually stunning!

It really is a shame that you canceled the project.

 Well, I got really fed up of the Sonic fans nitpicking and complaining nonstop either because it's too much like Sonic X-Treme or not enough (kind of comments I received : "hey moron, Sonic X-Treme used sprites, why are you using an ugly 3d model? Lol").
Or : "why aren't you porting Sonic Mania instead? Do I have to do it myself?".
Its just a really toxic community full of entitled kids, its better that I cancel this project to focus on something I find more interesting and challenging.

Not being stuck with Sonic X-Treme levels and design also allows me to push the hardware much more.
1300 drawn polygons at 20 fps ftw.
And Im still far from done optimizing everything.
