If you follow this blog, you will already know that I am currently working with a friend (cyberpiper) in the production of an authentic historical reproduction of 1867 Luxembourg, using the Roblox platform.
Using old photographs and other historical documents, cyberpiper and I are producing a realistic computer generation of how this part of Luxembourg would have looked in the mid-nineteenth century.
If you are keen to see how the work in progress is faring, you are welcome to view the following video clip of a basic walk around the Rue des bons Malades. Cyberpiper and I are now working on buildings on the opposite side of the river, before proceeding to complete the section of the city beyond the church.
There is a great deal of work to do but you are welcome to visit what has been done so far, if you remain interested.
Can you recognise the location shown in this photograph, by visiting and playing the game?
Ultimately, our aim is to produce a working game that may encourage gamers to enjoy and respect our amazing shared historical heritage.
