* About S2ENGINE

S2Engine is a complete kit for developing games and Virtual Reality environments. One of its best features is high quality of graphics subsystem based on a technology that allows to project shadows over any surfaces and any objects in scene apart from their position and/or complexity.This is possible using a 'stencil shadow volumes' system optimized for real-time applications. This technique together with BumpMapping Shaders (diffuse and specular), with fully dynamic lights and with DPS technology (see features), allows to obtain real-time photorealistic environments and atmospheres. Thanks to its flexibility, every sub-system has been optimized, from graphics to physics. Moreover S2Engine has a flexible modular structure that allows user to implement new features (such as: curved surfaces, particle systems, dynamic LOD, new shaders, new deformers, etc.) and porting the code to other systems like, for instance, consoles. S2 technology is organized in a framework, based on a set of hierarchical classes, that allows easily managing all the components of a real-time interactive simulation, i.e.: Input, Sound, Network, AI, GUI, Physics, etc.
