This would make a good world view for a port or remake of Alternate Reality. I love those games. Mostly played 'The Dungeon' but couldn't find any good clips of it..

I'm sorry if I'm trying to bring this thread back from the dead, but there's no evidence that the project has been totally abandoned, and Duke Nukem got released, so... :D

I made a similar spriteless raycaster in Qbasic/QB64 and I think it would be really cool if this could be made similar. I'd be willing to give source, as long as I got credit. As I said, no sound or sprites are needed, so it just might fly on the NES!

Here is a video of my program.

So the goal is to avoid the blocks that come at you? I am not too fond of this idea because it removes two things I consider essential: the ability to turn left and right and the freedom to explore.

It should be possible to come up with some other kind of gameplay that does not require objects to be placed in the maze... You can have a gun and shooting walls is definitely a possibility, so maybe something interesting can be made with those elements.

I do want to add objects eventually, but there would be at most 2 or 3 objects in a room, otherwise the speed would drop too much.
