A few words about project status. Currently we have already finished main modeling phase and started with models detalization, texturing and animatic construction.

Thank you for your interest in our works and hope to see you very soon
Render Farm – is an open source BGE game developed in 18 hours by cgex.net team during GameJam2011 event (game profile). The idea of a game is that you have to use processors to render a secret information which will save humanity from extinction. Game play: you have to make tracks (a blocks from top right corner) to ‘render’ an image (blocks in main field). Drag mouse over processor coolers to start rendering. Keep running – your battery is going low. Good Luck !

Recently we have started an open animation project named “Project 2011″ inspired by Blender Foundation open movie projects. Currently we already finished with pre-production stage and entered modelling phase. Here is our first pre-production trailer:
CGEX team proudly presents open animation movie project named “Project 2011″. It is probably the first open animation project in Lithuania inspired by well known Blender Foundation projects like “Elephants Dream”, “Big Buck Bunny” and the latest “Sintel”. Our most inpatient readers should know that “Project 2011″ will be SciFi type animation short made completely with open source tools – Ubuntu as operating environment, Gimp, Inkscape, and Blender of course. We already finished with preproduction stage – story, screenboards and concepts. Some of them you can see below:
There will be 4-5 people team working on this project for about a half of a year (estimated project finish on 2011.06) and information about progress will be constantly published on this website. Movie source files and documentation will be available in both – english and lithuanian languages. We also have plans about project DVD release with HD movie (with sponsors list), documentary, storyboards, source-files and tutorials of course.
