The Legend of Zelda: Black Crown featured!

My little fan game project The Legend of Zelda: Black Crown is the Featured Project over at Zelda Fan Game Central! \o/ You can discuss it on the Forum Thread or take a look at the Wiki Entry.

For any of you that have missed the game, here are some screenshots and the download link. It requires Windows, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49981) and a GPU that supports Shader Model 2.0. Please poke me if you have any feedback or ideas on how to improve the game!

Don’t forget to use the Zelda Updater after installing the game to get the latest patch.

Fract: Real-time Shader Viewer

Fract allows you to edit shader (.fx) files written using HLSL and

Microsoft .NET 4.0 (http://bit.ly/bEI3bv)
Microsoft XNA 4.0 (http://bit.ly/d7snYW) or Microsoft XNA 3.0 (http://bit.ly/cEIXcz)

Fractals on the Gpu

I finally started the long journey to learn How-To-Program-My-Own-Graphics-Card.
My choice of language was C#. And as such I’ve decided to use XNA as the graphics API. And HLSL as my shader language.

I’ve always loved fractals. My dad used to draw them using Q-Basic on his old 33 MHZ computer. A simple black-and-white colored drawing of the Mandelbrot Set took 2 (TWO) hours to execute!

Today I’ve written a colored-version that runs in real time, without any lag.
Here’s the result:
