The Blender Game Engine is a component of Blender, a free and open-source comprehensive 3D production suite, used for making real-time interactive content. The game engine was written from scratch in C++ as a mostly independent component, and includes support for features such as Python scripting and OpenAL 3D sound.

0 comments by AndrewCabebe on Apr 30th, 2015

's the gameplay that we have now for Immortal Love. It features two bosses so far. Here, we're demonstrating the basic moving and attacking mechanics. This particular build
is from a Noob Jam at UAT from a while back. This version of the game was made in Blender, but we're planning to make the switch to Unity. There isn’t much here
right now, but it is a good starting point leading to where we want to head
with the game.

The most striking thing that you’ll notice is the liberal use of blacks and whites, as well as
the hand drawn art. Okay, well the art part was a joke, but the color scheme
seems to fit in well with the game so far. We’ll look to improve clarity and
visibility any way we can while still maintaining our color scheme.

The gameplay is akin to classic style side-scrolling games like Castlevania or Metroid. In the
gameplay here, our hero is equipped with an axe that travels in a straight
trajectory and dies off. In the final game, we’ll have a greater selection of
weapons to meet greater challenges. The bosses that we have now can easily be
defeated by simply jumping up onto the platforms that line up with their
changing weak spots. Other bosses in the future will not be so easy. Some may
require you to attack at specific timings, while others will require specific
weapons to use in order to defeat them. For instance, if a boss’s weak spot is
at a higher elevation, and there are no platforms to use, you may have to use
an arcing weapon to get hits in.

Anyway, that’s all for now, I hope that you enjoy the gameplay that we have so far. Everyone here
on the team is looking forward to working on the project in the future and
getting more content out for people to see.

Hey, I just updated Blender 2.69 to Blender 2.70 and noticed that the "Singletexture" shading setting found at the camera tab to the right is gone. Is that feature moved? I have a .blend file made in 2.69 which had "singletexture" enabled instead of "multitexture" but when I opened it after updating it was changed to "multitexture" and there was no "singletexture" button there anymore. I solved this temporarily by downgrading to 2.69 but I really want to use 2.70 without having to change so much stuff in my game project. I would really appreciate if anyone could help me with this, maybe it's just a bug but who knows?

The Singletexture mode has been removed in favor of just Multitexture and GLSL, yes. If you want to keep up on development, the blenderartists forums are the best way to do so.

What do you mean? Game engines usually provide and handle features that you would have to make yourself. For example, the Blender Game Engine handles displaying objects, physics, and scene loading and unloading itself, so you don't have to worry about it.

Games don't require engines to work, though. You could make a game without a pre-made engine (just some frameworks for drawing things and taking input, for example).

So to answer your question, no, games don't require engines to work. However, most games are powered by game engines - you've seen the "Powered by Unreal" screen when you start up some games, right? The Unreal Engine is a game engine - it 'enables' the game. Also, engines don't have to be 3D - Game Maker and StencylWorks can also be considered game engines.

meh??? engines are not required to make games??? I've always thought engines are what games are made with... If there's no engine, how are the physics, lighting, etc. emulated?? I'm confused =S

The game engine takes out a lot of the hefty lifting basically

What I meant was that you could make a game without a pre-made engine to handle the physics, lighting, drawing, input, and sound. Commercial engines are generally easier to use than writing a game 'from scratch'.

If you were to use a framework, like SDL or OpenGL and Bullet, then you wouldn't have to worry about low-level code (handling audio or manually dealing with 3D or physics). Frameworks don't usually have all of the features of a full game engine, but rather have only some of them, and usually require at least some coding to work with. There are also frameworks that, while requiring coding to work with, have many or even all of the features necessary to make games, like PyGame or FlashPunk, but aren't fully featured game engines like Unity or the BGE.

Engines (other than custom-written ones), on the other hand, are usually pre-made to run out of the box. Examples are UDK, Unity, RPG Maker, Game Maker, and the Blender Game Engine.

Yes you can make a game without a premade game engine, but having one would make the job easier, but if you don't you would have to write all code for the game yourself

aaaahhhhh, I didn't know that when using the word 'engine' it refers to a pre-made kind of software, hmmm... interesting, you seem to know a lot! (and thanks btw)

I don't really know much of anything, honestly. I just meant pre-made engines; you could write your own game engine if you wanted.

And no problem.

heheh, I find all of this so cool but my computer right now is so crappy it lags when playing youtube vids so I may try out the BGE when I get my new computer maybe this summer ;P

One Awesome piece of software, I just wish they would have kept the dual licensing for the game engine.
