It really is the best game of 2018, Thank you.

"We're saddened if any former members of any studio did not find their time here enjoyable or creatively fulfilling and wish them well with finding an environment more suitable to their temperaments and needs…" Or : We're saddened if any former members of our studio are not happy to have been exploited to enrich us. Awesome !!!! Ok, guys… you have lost one customer !

Shader Inspired by Journey

Check out this mind-blowing shader from Shadertoy which is a tribute to “Journey” by That Game Company. H-Man has shared a nice code that recreates sand from the popular game. 

Check out the shader

First of all, here are some things the author has to say: 

  1. No, I do not have any affiliation with That Game Company.
  2. Yes, Journey is one of the best games ever made
  3. It has taken me around 3-4 months from start to finish, evenings and weekends
  4. Most of the time was spent getting the details right
  5. Yes, the character needs more work. One day I will finish it
  6. Yes, if anybody comes up with something cool to add, I would love to improve 🙂
  7. There is nothing mathemagically amazing in this shader. I hope you do find it pretty though!
  8. Yes, the code is fairly ugly. But look at the colors – PRETTY!
    If you have any other questions, I will be happy to answer

The artist started writing the code as a learning playground, but around January, but decided to finish and share with us. The shader might be imperfect, but you have to admit it’s damn pretty.

@Jursey – you can’t really apply the code in any useful sense – it’s a shader technical demo. Technically very impressive, but ultimately useless 🙂

Thanks for sharing. I am not a programmer I wonder how can I apply the code.
