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 That Rock Paper Scissor Game! with 0 comments by TonyPowell on Jan 2nd, 2015

We've all played Rock Paper Scissor, but not like this! Playing with up to 3 players, you choose your character either Rock, Paper or Scissor and the objective is to smash into you prey while avoiding your predator! (Rock smashes Scissor, Paper covers Rock, Scissor cuts Paper)

Trailer

Power Ups and Special Attacks will give you a competitive edge over your opponents , Choose between grabbing Land Mines which are triggered based on proximity, Dashing which allows you to move 10x faster for a short period of time, and temporary Invisibility! and many more! Power ups can be used up to 3 times and once all used, return back to its original place in the level to be grabbed again. Power ups are also lost upon death, successful use on your opponent or via the discard button.

Invisibility

Mines

Dash

Special Attacks occur when your players critical meter has maxed out. Players are given critical points once killed or has scored a kill. Players are given 1 critical point if killed and half a point if they scored a kill. Once all 3 critical points are maxed out players may use a Special Attack to gain an advantage in the match or to even the playing field.

Scoring :
W/O Power Up - 3 pts
With Power Up - 6 pts
Special Attack - 12 pts

Player with the most points by the end of the match wins!

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.

Yes, you certainly can. The only possible problem is that the BlenderPlayer (the executable) is GPL licensed, meaning that if you bind your game in with the player, then your game would also become GPL licensed. You can surpass this by simply keeping your game file external from the executable and loading it at runtime via a simple logic brick, or by using an encrypted alternative, like the BPPlayer.

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