The engine used to build this game was a once-off creation, designed explicitly to run this particular title. This is not a real game engine, this is a GENERIC category.

A game run on an engine built for a few games (a game series, etc.), but not being clearly known or featured, should be assigned to Unknown engine.

About StaudSoft's Synthetic World with 1 comment by bsf_mistau on Sep 16th, 2014

In the next hours is a 50% sale on Desura. So if you are interested in my game check it out:

StaudSoft's Synthetic World

And I always wanted to have a tropical zone. Now I added palm trees and other tropical plants:

Tropical Plants Tropical Plants

There are two types of palm trees and 5 different types of tropical plants. And of course you can grow them.

When the next update comes this environment will be accessable.

And I want to give a special thanks to Matt Zenel for helping me releasing this game.

Custom Built simply put. Developers made the engine for their own game.

How can a non-existent engine be released on September 1, 2007? Does that mean that if I wrote up my own engine for an XYZ game I must have released it by that date?

custom build means that the developer does not release the engine details or give it a name. For example: halo 3 it was only released on the xbox360 so their was no need to give it a name. If i am wrong someone please correct me.

Halo 3 was on the Halo Engine. It is an updated version of the one used in Halo 2, But it is still the Halo engine ;)
