Oldskooler is an expanding collection of visual effects inspired by 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 certain parts of your scene appear lower res than the rest of the environment. Can use the custom depth or stencil buffers to mask out which objects it affects.
* 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 very fast alternative to regular lighting with a chunky appearance. Great for mobile!

Every effect is either a post process blendable or a material function. There's minimal setup or technical knowledge required for immediate results. Making your assets look worse but in a good way has never been so easy!
