After all the experience and satisfaction gained with the puzzle game Plith, we are very proud to present you our new project in Panda3D, Yorg!

This game is completely different from the first one: if Plith was "food for brain", this time we focused in giving players a challenge for reflexes! We are developing a 3D arcade racing game with the (ambitious) goal to be both funny and with an high risk of addiction!

In four points, we can summarize Yorg as:

  • an open source game;
  • with a clean and classy graphic;
  • for both quick matches and long tournaments;
  • with an AI with different levels of complexity.

Here is its page. Here is the project's page.

Here you can find builds. At the moment you can find there just source files, because we are waiting for Panda 1.9 deployment tools to create Windows/OSX/Linux/browser releases... so be sure to have Panda 3D's SDK (or just wait some weeks for a demo)!

For the physics we've chosen to use the Bullet library; the 3D modelling has been developed entirely with Blender, while GIMP has been used for texturing. All the audio has been taken from Creative Common's world.

Just to give you an idea of the game, here are a couple of screenshots:

I'm relatively new to programming, but I found python easy (compared to other languages) to learn and Panda seems to be it's match in that way. It comes with loads of examples and an online manual. Even if you don't want to make a game with it, it's still useful with prototyping.

Im looking in to making a horror first person action game and after i saw how much of a pain in the *** Unity3D would be if you didnt get the pro version (well you can write your own physics and shaders ect. for the engine but the implementation can be tricky. Doing that i thought would make it difficult to make more than HALF of the code that the games rendering and pysics system needs. So i turned to UDK and i realized, just this is 1.7 gigabytes, it is cutting edge, but i dont need cutting edge. Im looking for a moderate graphical experience. And im going for simplicity. Im making all the models and as many graphical elements alone as possible. So when this came across my eye. I thought, its simple yet effective. I Hope i will like this engine enough to develop my game on it.

This engine is pretty good. Everything that needs fixing up you can magically fix due to the open source code and your coding abilities.
