Oldskooler is an expanding collection of vintage gaming visual effects.

It gives your assets a retro charm by simulating the limitations of older game engines.

Current effects include:

  • Voxelization
    • That blocky "3d pixels" look from a yesteryear that never really happened.
  • Vertex Quantization
    • That boiling, wobbly look that low poly meshes got in early 3d games.
  • Pixelization
    • Make a single object appear lower res than its surrounding environment.
  • Stipple Transparency
    • A high frequency opacity mask that created the illusion of translucency on hardware that couldn't support it.
  • Flicker Transparency
    • Another translucency hack with an instantly recognizable look.
  • Vertex Lighting
    • A super cheap and chunky method of lighting. Also works great as a speed hack on mobile!

Everything included can be drag and dropped into your existing materials, or used as a post process blendable. There's minimal setup or technical knowledge required for immediate results. Making your stuff look worse but in a good way has never been so easy!

(Note: Oldskooler has so far only been tested in a monoscopic view on Unreal Engine 4 versions 4.11, 4.12, and 4.13. Opening the included project requires version 4.13. Also the voxelization and pixelization effects require features not available in WebGL or most mobile platforms.)
