Amiga Software By Digital Dalmatian


Last updated: 21st October 2015

The very first level in the game
L-S_3Dmodels.PNG image
3D models I have created using Wings 3D (on my laptop)
which may be used to create some CGI images for use in the game

Project L-S


Project L-S was the working title of a game I am making for the Amiga - finally settled on a title and a logo: Lightning Strikes. It is being written in 68000 assembly language :)
All of my assembler made software is released under the name Digital Dalmatian.
