Recently Gaming Irresponsibly, among many other websites, reported on a little known Australian company called Euclideon. This company claimed that it could literally boost the graphics of gaming by X100,000 times by the elimination of polygons and in the introduction of “atoms”. Well among the many readers and avid gamers out there who have called the company out on this game is Notch. If you don’t know who Notch is then you’re obviously living in a dark cave somewhere, or you just haven’t heard of Minecraft. Notch is the brain behind the ever-expanding-block-building-awesomely-awesome-superty-duperty-really-really-cool building game Minecraft. If you haven’t played it then you need to go try out the alpha and then proceed too buying the beta.
Notch has recently made a blog post where he calls Euclideon out and discusses the intricate nature of the new “unlimited detail” technology that they are using. It’s too long to post here so head over to Notch’s blog to read it for yourselves.
If you haven’t read anything on the claims that Euclideon has made then read my post on their YouTube videos where they explain the technology and how it could vastly improve gaming.
