I think you should have specified its a side scrolling platformer really. Many 3d platformers aren't side scrolling.

Anyway, most 3d engines will do sidescrolling games fine. An illusion of a 3rd dimension can be done with good artwork on a 2d sidescroller too.

Cryengine will bend you over and rape you unless you have lots of experience in C++. UDK and unity are both firm choices. Really look at the multitude of posts discussing various 3d engines and then pick one.

The Blender Game Engine could be used to make a game like this.

I have a series of video tutorials that will help you get started: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/625003-video-tutorials-blender-game-engine/

I don't like using other people's engines, so maybe I'm misinformed, but doesn't cryengine and unreal engine cost a lot of money to use?

Some time ago, I used the Irrlicht engine. Not too shabby. Also, there's Ogre3D. (None of these are actual game engine, but rather visualization engines, but they can get you quite far.)

You can go to the UDK home page and see the license terms. Free for educational purposes and non-comercial projects.
And... Just for curiosity, have you made a game engine?


I think you can use Unity, because is easier to learn, and also powerful. It is suitable for indie games.

Yes, I have. Using openGL, GLSL/Cg, openAL, and SDL/GLFW. (the "/" depends on which version of the engine. I think I made 4-5 versions of the same engine over many years.)
