The RoachEngine: a new Game Engine for the Web

a work-in-progress demo by Zoe Yaga ~ ~ Site last updated September 10th, 2001 at 9:54 p.m.

Abstract
Above is an incomplete demonstration of the RoachEngine, a game engine I am writing in JavaScript. Concurrently, I am making a 3D platform/exploration game with it as a proof-of-concept. The controls are i,j,k,l on the keyboard for movement, spacebar for jumping, shift for "back" or "menu" and return for "interact". I am working on getting controller support working.

Please provide your feedback and feel free to say "hello"!

Keyboard Controls
The game controls are currently mapped to the following layout:
      I,J,K,L................Movement (Go forward, turn left, run backward, turn right, respectively)
      W,A,S,D.............(TO DO) Move camera.
      Space bar...........Jump.
      Return................Interact.
      Shift...................Open pause menu.
      Escape...............Halt if program freezes or crashes.
