About Rising World with 3 comments by jiw-games on Nov 18th, 2014

Hello folks!

Finally we changed the name of our game to Rising World! It is no longer called Concept. We also reworked our homepage, feel free to give us feedback! You find the new homepage at

Expect a small update for the game shortly, which will introduce a new reworked launcher and changes all labeles to Rising World.

As you may have read in our previous news, we're going to release the game on Steam. As part of our preparations for the launch of Rising World (estimated release date: 3rd of december 2014), the game will no longer be available for purchase via our store, until it is finally released on Steam.

Last but not least we want to give you some information about the current progress: We're currently implenting animals, which will be available at the same time as the Steam release. Find some images below.

You also find all information in our forum:

Stay tuned! :)

I wonder if this game engine can do something similar to CryEngine 2 or 3, in example, talking about the generated environments. It would be great to make an scenary in both engines and compare the results. I'm learning to use this engine (jME 3) because I have some ideas I would like to materialize, and I know Java enough to start with it, but I have no experience in Game development; that's why I would like to know if this engine can generate realistic environments as CryEngine (2 or 3), or if there are some limitations (about performance or something else) for that (excluding of course the quality of textures and models).

It really comes down to the quality of your models and your scene composition skill. Nothing performance wise is gonna stop you from making a scene in jME3 that's as good looking a what you see in a CryEngine game, but those scenes usually took several thousand expert man hours to put together.

This engine is the best thing for java game creation.
but still its a bit buggy and the SDK's gui is super slow and buggy.
so I'm using direct LWJGL.

Did you try the RC1 release yet? There's been some major improvements in the SDK, including a big performance boost.

Thanks! As for the "next up", the most prevalent milestones would be further improved Android support as well as finally going Stable.

Along with that, we'll be doing a lot of cool new publicity stuff now that I'm done with my education :D

Developer of 3079 here -- My game wouldn't have existed if it wasn't for this engine. This engine has done so many great things for me, and knowing it is purely Java based allows it to be completely cross-platform without any extra work. Did I mention it is free? These guys deserve tons of credit. This engine is fast and full of features. It also includes a complete Software Development Kit with terrain editors and all sorts of gizmos. Highly recommend this! In response to other review comments…
