WHAT IS S2ENGINE?

S2 ENGINE HD is a complete general-purpose software kit for developing and running videogames and other virtual-reality applications, specifically dedicated to PC indie developers from a indie developer. Its simplicity and a powerful, just-ready, all-in-one toolset lets indies – and game enthusiasts – turn on their computers and create amazing visuals in minutes just as if they were professionals. Developing games is as fun as playing them using S2 ENGINE HD!

NO PROGRAMMING SKILL REQUIRED

Thanks to GameMachine, a node-based visual scripting system, designed on well-known State, Event and Action concepts, all, even not programmers, can do awesome things using S2ENGINE.

CHEAP PRICE, PAY ONCE, NO ROYALTIES

S2ENGINE HD will be yours at a very cheap price. You will pay only once. No monthly subscriptions, No royalties after your game is published.

S2ENGINE HD IS THE NEXT-GEN GAME ENGINE FROM AN INDIE TO INDIES

Next-generation features and a complete visual editor will allow you to create high-quality video games without requiring extensive resources and large teams. We are indie just like you, we know what it means making games with a small team.The new and constantly updated version of the engine is developed with a very clear goal in mind: to let people have full and easy access to AAA development. Physically Based Rendering, HDR, Visual Node-Based Scripting System, High-Quality Post Processing, All-In-One Editor are only some of the features you will find in this amazing product. The Best choice for the modern indie game developers!

WHY PC ONLY?

Many commercial engines are designed to be cross-platform, but this strategy, inevitably, forces to be unable to exploit target hardware pushing it to extreme performances. We strongly believe in PC as best gaming platform, so we designed S2ENGINE HD with PC hardware in mind in order to gradually push it to the limits!

IDEAL FOR WHO WANTS TO PUBLISH GAMES ON STEAM

Since S2ENGINE is highly optimized for running on PC Windows systems, it is ideal if you want to use it for developing your AAA-quality game on Steam.

YOUR FEEDBACK IS IMPORTANT FOR US

Give us suggestions, bug reports, and, in general, share ideas about what you want a game engine must have. We will constantly update the product basing on your feedback and suggestions. We work to make your dreams a reality. We work to make S2Engine the best for indies, the best for you!

We are proud to announce that the long-awaited S2ENGINE HD update to 2019.1.7 has been released.
A lot of improvements have been made and new features have been added.

EASY GAME PACK INVENTORY

One of the best improvements of this release is without doubts the new inventory system of the EasyGamePack DLC.
The new inventory system has a lot of cool features:

  • New documents / files category added to the exiisting items and weapons
  • New examine function that lets player to examine items before using them
  • New layout (compact mode) that organizes categories using tabs (items/weapons/files)
  • New item description section appearing when item/weapon/file is selected
  • Dynamic controls tip: the system automatically checks if you are using keyboard/mouse or joypad and informs you what controls you can use for doing current operations (examine, use, drop, select, etc...)
  • Many other small improvements

EASY GAME PACK WEAPONS

The second main improvement again related to EasyGamePack DLC. We have re-organized the Player Character GameMachine using new added actions for controlling GameMachine layers.
Thanks to this new organization now it is much more easy to add new weapons to the player or replacing existing ones.

NEW CORE TOOLS

Following is a list of main improvements of the system core:

  • ISOLATE SELECTION: now it is possible to isolate a selected object and show all links it has with other objects, this is very useful expecially when you make games in which there are a lot of events connected (for example a switch that send an events to some object one of them awakes a trigger that unlock another switch etc...).
  • New AIPath object that is very useful if you want an AIagent must follow a predefined path, or if you want an object, for example a camera, must follow a predefined path in a cutscene.
  • New 3dText object for writing text into 3d space. It can be also attached to othe objects
  • New GameMachine actions for managing layers (enable/disable). So you can selectively execute layers of a GameMachine improving performances and making easily to maintain big Finite State Machine logics.
  • New Timer objects that are useful for triggering events after certain time is passed.
  • New parameters into Widget objects for improving GUI editing.
  • and many more...

IMPORTANT NOTES

There are a lot of new things to explain, expecially regarding EasyGamePack.
So, during next week, we will progressively upload tutorials on our youtube channels and new information on the official manual on s2powered.com.
SO STAY ABSOLUTELY TUNED!

Hello. I was wondering if you could create a Mech Game startup package for your engine? Maybe something that is kind of like Mech Warrior with Locational damage? I would even be willing to supply the mechs if need be.

Interested in the engine
But can't import the model
Unable to download the plug-in
In the face of the user's help is very little
donate is very little,
I would like to suggest that

sell the game, you get 30% of its revenue

So I just found out that this engine isn't compatible with Windows 8. That makes me very sad D:
