The 96KB Game – kkrieger the smallest 3D shooting game in the world
The entire game uses only 97,280 bytes of disk space. In contrast, most modern first-person shooters fill one or more CDs or DVDs.According to the developers, .kkrieger itself would take up around 200–300 MB of space if it had been stored the conventional way.
.kkrieger makes extensive use of procedural generation methods. Textures are stored via their creation history instead of a per-pixel basis, thus only requiring the history data and the generator code to be compiled into the executable, producing a relatively small file size. Meshes are created from basic solids such as boxes and cylinders, which are then deformed to achieve the desired shape – essentially a special way of box modeling. These two generation processes account for the extensive loading time of the game — all assets of the gameplay are reproduced during the loading phase.
.kkrieger is a 96KB (yes kilobytes) FPS game, it would need 300MBs it was used a conventional compression
