Heat haze

Other (objects, etc.) entity


Alternate name: Heat distortion

The first video game about Heat haze was released in 2005.

In modern games this is usually a shader effect. In older games this is either pre-rendered animation or a pixel displacement effect (by wobbling/misaligning whole lines of pixels horizontally in a wave-like motion).
