Image Description, by Bob Stewart

This image is from my game in development called Proxima Rebellion. It will feature combat action and some strategy with land, air and sea units. It is currently in a very early but playable stage of development.

The program was written in C++ using Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0, and uses DirectX 8.1. OpenGL compatability may be planned in the future.

The project began back in December of 2001 simply as a way for me to learn my way around Direct3D, and as a challenge to myself to see if I could really implement such things as 3D rendering, collision detection, physics and AI. The design goals for the game continue to evolve and become more ambitious as I progress and learn more. So far it has been a very challenging and educational experience. I have a degree in Electrical Engineering, which has given me the strong foundation in the mathematics necessary for developing a 3D game.

While the game is fairly simple and action-oriented in its current demo form, I hope to add elements of strategy in the future to eventually make it a hybrid shooter/RTS game along the lines of Battlezone and Uprising, with a little inspiration from the classic Carrier Command.

The website for the game is at An early stage concept demo is available for download.
