Aquaria for Mac hasn't made it to the App store or Steam yet, but you can get it via Mac Games Arcade, a similar digital download application.

A quick stop at Wikipedia could've cleared it up...I knew what he meant. The term predates cg. People mostly make spaceships around here, but there's no reason you couldn't use the same technique to make, say, an artificial cityscape, or a circuitboard facsimile.
Graphics work has been difficult because now I do not have legal access to 3ds Max. I have a tendency to be kicked from school resources because I use them too often.
Wait, what graphics work is there to do? I thought this was to be a straight port, meaning all the graphics can be re-used.
Now the fairly major change: I've split Xsera into two parts, the actual game Xsera and an independent game engine called Apollo. Apollo contains nothing specific to Xsera, and can be used as a separate game engine for other projects. In fact, I'm going to do exactly that.
This carries some major advantages. Multiple projects using the core engine means it gets far more in the way of updates to keep it running efficiently and with plenty of features for us happy developers to use. The engine is called Apollo, and, incidentally, if any of you are thinking of making a game any time soon, it's there for you to use!
Whoa, this is major. I had my doubts, but building Dawn of Infinity on top of a separated Apollo engine might actually work. I heartily approve of going in this direction. I should check out the IRC room sometime.
This thread was revealed to be a HOAX. It's left a bad taste in my mouth, and probably other people's mouths as well. Anything in this thread will be met with suspicion and doubt. Don't use this thread for any project you want people to take seriously.
Ah. Then it seems you're being more ambitious than I thought. Luckily it doesn't seem to be slowing you down at this point.
I'd concluded some time ago that writing an engine from scratch was a contributing factor in DoI not getting the momentum it needed on the coding side. You do have the advantage here that people can be excited about Xsera because they know what it will be like. DoI is going to be EV-like, but will not be using any content from the EV games.
The original source code is under the GNU GPL. Part of that license dictates that new modifications to the code, i.e. the code you guys write, also be compatible with the GPL. So yes, everyone will have the right to reuse the code you make, at least in other GPL projects. The only thing you're really giving up is the exclusive right to the code, since anyone can use it if they follow the rules.
