Buoys is a toy where you get to spin some circles around and enjoy the resulting emergent behavior.
Only works on the latest version of Windows 10 and you need a DX12 GPU for it to run at like not <1fps as all graphics are ray-marched.
Without an Xbox controller plugged in, BUOYS will run in demo mode. Plugging in a controller will allow you to control the buoy boys with the analog sticks. The toy can be experienced alone or with a friend, by holding one half of the controller each. Use the triggers to pull the strange and powerful THIRD BOY towards your small, weak, lesser boy.
Custom C++ D3D12 engine with Lua. Shadertoy style graphics with HLSL.
