Hello,

I have just started with the first video and it looks very promising. Thank you for putting in the time for it.

Does the final game include hardware acceleration?

Thanks for your comment!
I'm glad you are liking it!

For this project, I shipped the software renderer. Which was a great learning experience (like adding bitmaps, optimizations, subpixel rendering, etc)!

For the next project, I indent to do the rendering using hardware acceleration. You can follow me on Youtube to get notified when that releases! :) www.youtube.com/DanZaidan
