A short history of the Rain Engine

 

Warning: Lots of images, so expect longer load times!

 

Today I'd like to share some screenshots and videos of older iterations of the Rain Engine starting with builds from late 2010 - early 2011.

All of these images are from tech demo's and prototypes, no gameplay footage is shown.

 

Please note that these images absolutely do not represent the current state of the engine.
