About "The Meadow"
|"I laugh in the face of performance." - Leigh McLoughlin
"The Meadow" provides a virtual environment in which programs written in the C-Sheep
programming language are executed and in which the program's behaviour can be observed. It is the world in which entities controlled by
C-Sheep programs exist.
"The Meadow" is based on our proprietary "Crossbow" game engine which incorporates a virtual machine for executing C-Sheep programs.
The Crossbow Engine is a compact game engine designed specifically for "The Meadow", yet it is flexible in design and offers a number
of features common to more complex engines. Graphics are supported through the OpenGL
API and NVIDIA's Cg Shaders, with window management and
input achieved through the Simple DirectMedia Layer.
