What you see above is a real time free-direction texture mapped 3d game engine prototype that is written in C for Linux/X but will port fairly easily to Win95/DOS. It is currently capable of frame rates up to 30fps on reasonably interesting images. With assembly optimization that figure should stay about the same even when it is doing fun game-like things.

The engine has improved significantly since the demo version 1 release of several months ago. A MUD or game is the likely next step.
