Side projects

Raycasting pseudo-3D graphics engine


Retro 3D graphics engine demo inspired by techniques used in Wolfenstein 3D. Uses vector math and CPU-based software rendering to turn 2D maps into 3D space, includes double-buffering and texture mapping.

Desktop browser-playable live demo is compiled to WebAssembly using Emscripten.

Awesome DOS


Curated list of references for development of DOS applications and learning about the system itself. The goal of this list is to collect information and act as a starting point for someone who wants to start out retro-programming for the DOS platform.

This list is featured on the official Awesome collection made by Sindre Sorhus.
