Had a quick play and this is really good. What is your procedure for creating the background?

Looks REALLY nice nenad.
The curves and shading are very well done.

Thanks guys! As for background; the game was made by java-scripting the html canvas element. It has a neat small api for blitting and drawing 2d shapes in the style of logo turtle (moveTo, lineTo, arcTo...).

First the plain terrain silhouette is drawn that way. The extrude/ambient-occlusion effect is then alpha-blitted over it using irregular tiles pre-rendered in an antique version of Maya.

Other scenery sprites are just pre-rendered bitmaps,
