Great engine! The python bindings are super easy to use, cutting development time down by at least half. The major downsides are the lack of: a scene editor, better out-of-the-box rendering/PBR, and publishing to mobile platforms. However, android support is improving and under development. So is the rendering: planned for the 1.11 release. Although a scene editor is *not* being made currently, I find that using blender to lay out the elements of the scene suffices for most needs.

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.
