Welcome to the website of the Nyx: Amethyst Prologue project!

Nyx is a realtime tech and gameplay demo created by Daniel Sadowski and Jaroslaw Socha in 2006 as a Bachelor in Computer Science degree project at the Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technologies. The project's goal was to create a working propotype of a computer game, which would incorporate many of the state of the art techniques used in commercial products.
