Revolution is here!

Developing games is as fun as playing them using S2 ENGINE HD! The editor of S2 ENGINE HD has been specifically designed so you can immediately see the changes you make to the virtual scene:no more waiting for pre-processing operations (such as lightmaps or BSP), in S2 ENGINE HD every change takes effect immediately : the shadows will move if you move the light, day will become night if you will bring forward the time, the rigid bodies will fall to the ground while respecting the physics laws if they are placed in the scene. You can create mountains, fill them with trees and plants, create clouds, changing weather conditions in your virtual world or put vehicles and rigid bodies and see them interacting realistically with the environment, and then more ...All in just few clicks and All in real-time!
