Hm. Really can't be called a game. Works very well as a generator though, haven't seen any messed up triangles.

I'd play this for hours if you added the possibility to walk on the planets! Or fly around them.

Impressive on a graphical-technical level. Some of the lower quality planets could be great as a backdrop to a 3D spacecraft game, and I'm sure you could build a game around the higher quality ones.

Love the models! They look very nice; however, I can't really call this a game. I can see these being used in a beautiful game though. Pretty neat.

I cannot run your game on WinXP, it crashes after a few seconds, without having displayed anything but an empty black window.

It would be interesting to see what kind of game this jagged terrain/planets could be uesd for.

Looks very interesting. Brings my laptop to its knees with quality over 5 ;)
