Just for the record Terragen is a 3d application used for making landscapes for production. Its not a game.

I'm sure that, with a very fast computer and some very interesting plugins, T2TP could be turned into a game.

You don't even need a single fast computer - if you had enough (at least 100) normal computers, you could split the frames into small enough chunks so that several frames could be rendered every second...


...or perhaps you could just settle for a resolution of 1x1.

Indeed - it's how I render animations, which is probably why I have so many. Supercomputers in the form of huge networks are surprisingly common...
