Hello everyone !

My name it is Vlad and i am studying programming(alone) for 8 mounths aleardy in Java and i love it! I`ve done some 2D games(very simple and baisic).But for me it is pretty hard to make everything alone and from my mind so i was thinking going to use an engine but i dont know what to pick up. :(
My goal it is to make a simple shooter game. Now here come my question , what engine should i pick for making some basic 3D games and later on go to more advanced stuff.I would like to suggest me some engines that are free to publish or the license to not bee so expensive( max 500$ lets say).
I was thinking at Blender,Torque3D,Unity3D(but 1500$ its too much for me).
In the end i want to thanks you for reading and i am apologizing for my bed eng. :(




P.S : I can learn any languages for using the engines,except C++

Why can't you learn c++? Its just a language, that apart, my suggestion is going with Unity3D,
It uses c# has scripting language.
Before you get afraid about C#, its similar, very very simlar to java, so you won't have any trouble in the transition.


Also, it has a free version, and can export to multitude of platforms, Web, Windows, Linux, Mac,Android, Iphone, Flash (although some of those require you to buy some components).

Also, take notice that Unity3D is a 3D engine, you can do 2D with it easily, give it a try =)

Unity!

There's the free version you can use, it's the best to use and find help if you're stuck, and it's component based.

There is an open source engine called playn (http://code.google.com/p/playn/) that uses java. It exports to IOS, Android, web and desktop, but I am not sure if it is good.
Also, if you are looking for a 3D free one, OGRE 3D has java bindings, but it is a graphics engine, not a game engine.

Those are all the ones I know of that you can use java, hope it helps.
