My name is Michael Baczynski, I’m a freelance programmer living in Germany. I created this blog to show my recent developments and projects, and to get in contact with other people sharing the same passion, namely everything about game development.

Behind the name “polygonal”

Technically speaking, a polygon is a “closed plane figure bounded by three or more line segments”. The word derives from the Greek “poly”, meaning “many”, and gonia, meaning “angle”. In some way a polygon is the equivalent of a pixel in 2D, since in 3D all objects are either directly or indirectly made of polygons.
I have chosen the name because it simply sounds nice and also implies that besides doing lots of programming, I started as a 3D designer years ago.
