    3D game for the Console?

    Hi,

    I have googled but nothing found.

    I would like to play great 3D games under Xterm (pure console).


    Would you know some great games, with 3D effects (sure taht it is possible)?

    Edit: If you believe that not possible, check that www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2F-KTrT_0E

    If you believe that it is not codable under Linux, you are wrong since we got the best OS ever also for gaming.

    thank you

    I remember a guy playing Quake III in a terminal once. He was using something to render the frames as ASCII images and it all worked pretty well. Forget what he used though.

    I think SDL games will run in the terminal, though the diplay will be really really rough.
