<< Please comment about WildTangent if any of you have tried it or something.... thanks >>

I discovered them in 2001 when we bought a new HP computer for the office and it had this game on it called "Speedway." VERY impressive given it plays as a Java applet inside a web browser. IOW, many of the games are written in Java there. Their Web Driver can be used to make games in Java, C, or even javascript.

I downloaded their SDK a while ago, but they have updated since then. Haven''t actually tried making a game with it yet, but very good documentation and information for a beginner (which I am) on how 3D works, and how to use their Web Driver to make games. Its something I might try after I finish a couple more 2D games.

If you haven''t seen this, I put their Monster Truck demo here. You can also download it from their site with their SDK. Plays inside a web browser, written in Java. Very impressive. If you have their latest Web Driver installed with IE, this should work.
