Volcano 3D Live Wallpaper v1.0

  - Google Play Link

Surprisingly, I believe this is the first 3D volcano scene in the live wallpapers category.  As a bonus, it's a good looking one.  :)

This project actually started more than a year ago, and went through several iterations of artwork before finally settling on the final product.  The terrain was sculpted as a high-poly model then rendered down into the real-time mesh you see here.  We tried to make sure there was an interesting foreground in addition to a good looking background, and think the end result here is very nice.

As always there's a number of fun features, including time of day lighting and the ability to cause an eruption by double-tapping on the background.  In the future we can hook this up to phone events, but for now the basics work.  :)

Hopefully folks enjoy!


  1. Best Volcano-themed live wallpaper on Google Play! Great job as usual, guys. Here's a video review: http://www.smartkeitai.com/volcano-3d-live-wallpaper-for-android-video-review/

  2. It would be super awesome if you could make a live wallpaper based on a tsunami I don't know how you would do it but I would love that if you could make a live wallpaper like that! I love your live wallpapers

  3. The look of this LWP is incredible. I would like to make a couple of suggestions for future revisions. (1) when double tapping do not shake the foreground until the rock actually hits it. I think the initial shaking takes away from the entire effect (2) make more of an explosion when when double tapping and (3) occasionally make the lava overflow the foreground (between the twp upright sections) and off the bottom edge of the screen
