the Evolution of Water

Computer water, circa 1982

Computer water, circa 2007

A series of 32 screen shots showing the development of rendering techniques for water in computer games from a German PC Magazine. I've actually played both the first and the last of the games in the sequence. Amazing how far graphics have come.

It's also impressive, in its own way, how good the first graphic was, given the drastically limited materials with which they had to work.
