Hi. I'm a huge fan of The Labyrinth of time and I'm interested in making game myself. It's supposed to be based on early 1990s point and click adventure games.


Do you remember what software you used to make Labyrinth of Time?

Well, it was a different world back then: I used a whole lot of Amiga software on the Labyrinth, including Imagine (for 3D rendering), The Art Department (for image processing), and Deluxe Paint and TV Paint (for 2D painting). Of those, only TV Paint still exists.
We compiled the animation files with custom software that we later turned into a commercial application called Magic Lantern.
But none of those would be viable today unless you were working on an updated Amiga or an emulator, which probably wouldn't make much sense.

Hi, again. Thanks for the reply! I had a feeling you used Imagine.

I'm actually going to be using Blender and POV Ray (which is an early 1990s ray tracer that comes included with Blender). It has very similar looking graphics to Imagine 3D.

This may be insulting- how much would you charge for me to use your image on a coffee mug for personal use?
I have the "back off im doing science t shirt" but as a university professor really cant wear it to work.  But id love to have a large mug with that and another with grumpy visionary.

Many people would love these but mugs are our main expression:)
There's a far easier way to get one of those : shop.webomator.com/retropolis/…
I suspect you might find robot artwork from game Fallout 3,4 come close, although story line is roughly 60's.

YouTube has game play in realtime, is quite amazing.
The player has access to wrist controller & tracking device is very cool.
The floating robot that follows player, darn cool.

Today was such a lottery shot win as to how I discovered the site _
thrilling-tales.webomator.com/…

The T-shirt that's available you have on the site is a must have.
Fallout shares some of my influences - they're just getting them second hand from the fifties and sixties :). Glad you liked the Thrilling Tales!
