3D Game in Wick?


Would it be possible to make a 3D game by importing 3D assets as GIFs/PNGs?

Edit: Never mind, no one replied.
Edit 2: Thanks, Zripso!


Hi there!

Wick doesn’t support 3D rendering, however, there are a lot of ways to “fake” 3D using 2D graphics only.

Games like Myst (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D30r0iRH73Q) use images that were rendered in 3D software, then were imported into the game and displayed to make the game world look 3D (notice how you only ever see still images in the levels).

Other games fake 3D by cleverly scaling 2D images like in Space Harrier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzgrb-mjLaM. There are no 3D models or anything in this game, it’s all images that create the illusion of 3D.

Let me know if you’d like any help implementing these in Wick - I probably have some fake 3D example projects lying around somewhere…


alright! thanks
