Anyone have recommendations for learning raytracing code? Specifically with a focus on low-level environments, like 8 or 16 bit.

@akkartik thanks for the links! The linked "Raytracing In One Weekend" page looks helpful as well.

@makeworld I have stumbled on this one in the past and it was the first time I almost understood part of a ray tracer hahaha

@makeworld This isn't 8/16 bit-specific, but I've found the pbrt book to be a very good reference. The most recent version is free online at


Never managed to find enough time to go through it myself, but heard good things about it
