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.

About Platformer with 0 comments by CosmicBadger on May 24th, 2015

Cosmic badger is an auto-runner for mobile that gives you the power to bend time and space with a single swipe. You control a heroic badger delivering a bomb back to his home planet in order to save it from an impending meteor. In order to avoid blowing up, Cosmic Badger must teleport past obstacles and terrain. Swiping on the screen summons two portals, an entrance portal where the swipe starts and an exit portal where the swipe ends.

It can't be done from this site. All you got to do is Google engine nam, except "Costume Engine" can't be found.

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.

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