Euclideon & Unlimited Detail - Bruce Dell Interview
AKA, Euclideon’s terrible narrator from last week’s video proves his UNLIMITED DETAIL game is possible on today’s technology and has the foundations of animation in the engine. It makes it seem like they got too giddy with what they’ve produced already and made an announcement about it the other day. Production continues, etc.
Skip ahead to 22 minutes in if you are too busy to wait through.

I can’t express how happy I am to see this video. Prost, thank you for posting it to Tumbles. ;v;
The first twenty minutes are more for history’s sake and so you get a full-ish backstory of what these guys have been doing. If you just want to see the technical details, you can skip to 22:00.
I watched it through, and the video is seriously 100% legit. You get specs for the computer (spoiler: it’s an ASUS G73SW, 8GB RAM, GeForce GTX 460M graphics card), you see the interviewer control it, everyone makes dorky jokes. Bruce is seriously a mega-dork, also a nice guy??
An important note at 32:19 onwards too: Because of the way the system works, it is entirely feasible that 3D game artists could move back to sculpture and traditional crafting in order to produce game models, art assets, what have you. To think that 3D game art assets could be totally produced with physical clay and paint — something that game companies were doing when all we had were sprites and pixels (Doom I and II are perfect examples of this) — is absolutely mindblowing to me.
‘Course, now Euclideon is going to be dead quiet about this until it’s ready, but I’m totally fine with that. I just hope Unlimited Detail sees some serious use in a few years time.
THANK YOU FOR THIS. I LOVE THIS.
Amazing follow-up, looks even more encouraging now. Thanks for posting & details, too!
Um. Videogame evolution to the tune of 2D evolving into 3D. These graphics are 100,000 times more detailed than Crysis 2 or any leading game of today. How detailed is that? The individual grains of dirt on the ground have seperate geometry.
And how? By replacing polygons with atoms.
NVIDIA IS FINISHED. NO, eVERYTHING IS FINISHEd
I don’t know how tighter we can make these graphics, man. They are off the CHAIN.
Oh man I remember seeing this tech last year, so glad they’re still going through with it.
Makes me wonder how they’d handle particle effects like fire and rain and whatever.
i have absolutely *no idea* how this is going to even begin working
how it doesn’t manage to completely fry the gpu is already baffling it in itself, let alone individual grains of dirt with unique geometry
Mind blown. Even with all the apparent grumbling about no animation (which is on its way, it seems), getting this level of detail for environments alone is astounding. Using this technology in games may still be far off, but this is certainly promising.
…I should post these links :\
I had no idea the problems ran this deep. It’s terrible what happens outside of the public eye with animals like these.
Samuel L. Jackson reads “Go The Fuck To Sleep”
Bedtime will never be the same again.
holy shit i was just watching Jackie Brown so this is even more hilarous
I actually downloaded this.
I’M DYING. XD LMAO.
this is beautiful and everything is beautiful
Oh my god. This needed to be on my blog yesterday.
This is brilliant in many ways.
