You're an experienced coder with strong skills and you're ready for game-making technology that lets you to take advantage of modern hardware to make truly stunning games. You've seen dramatic visuals applied to games you love to play yourself and you've been waiting for the opportunity to replicate and innovate on those effects to make your next game one that everyone wants to play.

It's one thing to create beautiful effects, but you're a serious developer and you know how important having a solid foundation for scripting, editing, physics, networking, animation, and debugging are to getting your game finished and shipped on schedule.

Torque Game Engine Advanced lets you do it all at a fraction of the cost.

We built Torque Game Engine Advanced (TGEA) on the proven, original Torque Game Engine (TGE) and TGEA shares many of TGE's greatest strengths like TorqueNet, GeoTerrain, Torque Lighting System, and Puppeteer Mesh Animation. TGEA is much more than TGE with support for modern shaders. The entire rendering code has been rewritten for vastly improved efficiency and expanded capability. Want eye-catching water, jaw-dropping reflection and refraction effects, or the ability to quickly compose complex scenes with huge numbers of polygons? This engine empowers you to do it all.

TGEA is the premier solution for Indie developers. For an in-depth look at how TGEA stacks up to the competition, view the Feature Comparison page. For a closer look at TGEA, see the Features page.

When you purchase Torque Game Engine Advanced, you get the full source code with complete documentation and access to the 70,000 member Torque Developer Network (TDN). Our community of Torque developers is active and generous in sharing solutions, tools, and experience working with Torque products. And like all our Torque licenses, you pay no royalties to GarageGames, ever.

TGEA is no longer updated, its last stable update was 1.8.1 on February 10th, 2009.

Well, 250 - 3000 $ for a commercial game engine is not that bad, I mean the cost for the Unreal Engine 3 it's like 500 000$

Theres nothing wrong with this engine, the 6.3 score is not true.

I really don't like that this engine has a 5.9 score, and yet no one has commented on WHY they don't like it. It would be helpful to express the faults of the engine for other aspiring developers to see. :/
