      Play Flick Football 3D @ https://gamejolt.com/games/flickfootball3d/326078
      Check out our Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/FlickFootball3D/
      Flick Football 3D is a turn based football game inspired by the table top classic 'Subbuteo'.
      The game is currently in very early Alpha development. There is still a lot to be done before the first proper release but I have decided to release this playable version to get as much feedback as possible.
      The only game mode currently available in this release is the 'Practice Mode' which gives you control of both teams. Either play against yourself to get used to how the game works or play against friends and family on the same computer!
      Planned Future Features Include:
      -Take control of your own custom team in the single player campaign.
      -Play in online leagues and tournaments against other players in the multiplayer mode.
      -Fully customisable stadiums to make you stand out from the rest of the players.
      -Improve your players stats and skills by playing matches and setting up training sessions.
      Flick Football 3D is available for Windows, Mac and Browser.
      Thank you for viewing my game, all feedback is greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at; BillyGDev@outlook.com
      'Flick Football 3D' is also the development name for the game and I haven't yet decided what the full release will be called, so if you have any ideas please drop me a message!

      It is a combination of fundamental RPG elements and challenging, session-based MOBA elements. Having features such as creating your unique build, customizing your outfit and preparing synergic team compositions with friends, players can brave dangerous adventures or merciless arena fights against deadly creatures and skilled players alike.

      This time with no grinding and no pay to win features.

      We're still looking for:
      1) 3D Character Artist
      2) 3D Environment Artist
      3) Animator
      4) Sound Designer
      5) VFX Artist

      Hi everyone! I'm currently working on a series of books about 2D Shader Development.

      The idea is to synthesize a bunch of techniques that are specifically useful for 2D, even if they work on 3D as well.

      I released the first book last week. It's 4.99 on Amazon or free on the series website, https://www.2dshaders.com

      This is an independent initiative, I don't work for any publisher whatsoever. The contents of the books are the result of a 4-year span where I started teaching this in Argentina and USA, always making the workshop better. Now I'm expanding it to make more sense in book form.

      I'd love to hear your opinions on the idea and if you get the book let me know what you think.

      By the way, the examples are in Unity, but the concepts from the book should be easily transferable to any graphics api/engine.

      Hope you like it!

I am in a project in a course called "Innovating Game Development" with three other people, and we are trying to figure out a good engine to use for our project. The course supports Dojo/G3D, but that has been a bit cumbersome and if we can find a better engine, that would be great. I am currently looking for some other ones, but it would be helpful if any experienced game programmers could point out any really nice engines we could use. Are there any superior FREE engines out there? To provide an idea of what we're doing, here is a rough draft of our project description: Genre: Racing Mechanics: Diddy Kong Racing meets Kameo: Elements of Power with free roaming elements Setting: King Kong meets Batman Target Audience: people who like racing games, people who don't like racing games, explorers, completionists, casual gamers, teenagers, people who like to blow sh*t up. Goal: Choose a transforming vehicle that will take you across a huge map to the finish line faster than your opponents while sabotaging them in the process! It's fun because... - Each time you play can be different, since there are many possible paths to take and many vehicles to choose. - You can discover how your vehicle can be used to overcome obstacles better than other vehicles. - Powerups not only attack your opponents or boost your own abilities, but they can also affect the environment itself! - Some vehicles are equipped with weapons that allow you to sabotage other vehicles, making the race. It takes a conniving player to beat the odds. It's innovative because... - It is a racing game but instead of traveling around a track that will be the same every time, it is up to you to figure out the best route from start to finish. - The terrain you travel on could be taken from satellite scans or you could create your own maps with randomly placed obstacles - Vehicles are widely different, and powerups affect each of them differently Scenes: The map would be huge and contain lots of different areas (city, jungle, underwater, etc.); some examples of advantages vehicles would have over others: - you might be a transforming vehicle that transforms into a humanoid robot to climb ladders and jump over rooftops rather than navigating through the streets - you could glide on or even swim through water, rather than avoiding it - you could have extra shock-absorbers or something to recover quickly from large drops or damage taken from powerups - you could have knives or something to cut through underbrush and move quickly through thick forest areas - you could even have no special abilities except immunity to powerups and above-average speed, acceleration and handling Vehicles with varying traits like these will attempt to find the best path through the map to reach the finish line. Powerups would include standard things like missiles from Mario Kart and also transform-disabling attacks and effects that would alter the environment (i.e. turn water into mud or something). Important note on AI: Racing games have never had stunning AI. Although to be fair, racing games have never needed any particularly good AI. There wasn't much the computer opponent needed to do except stay on the track and try not to crash. But in this game, things are different. With the environment-racing concept, not only has the terrain upon which the racing takes place changed, but so has the opponents against which one races. Gone are the simplistic, go forward on the track at a steady pace and basically being an ignorable part of the background AI opponent. Now the opponent will learn and adapt to your strategy in an attempt to cut you off, or to stop you from reaching your goal. Be it by physically body blocking you, or changing the terrain to become hostile to you, or perhaps even using the powerups against you, the AI opponent can and will try to stop you every step of your way to the finish!

well, for starters that sounds like a pretty ambitious project, I wish you luck on it...

As for engines, there aren't too many free complete engines but there are a bunch of different components that are free.



fmod (only free for freeware projects!)


These are only a few that I can think of off the top of my head. I know the torque engine is only 100 bucks and its a complete engine, but I'm not going to give it my endorsement. The code is really hard to go through, but you get what you pay for.

I'm sure there are more components out there than the ones I listed, you'll just have to search around and keep your eyes open.

You could use directx which covers almost everything but physics and though its lower level than say Ogre3d.

Hope that helps

Me and my partners were checking out Ogre3D and were very impressed. Any pleasant experiences with that engine? Is it easy to implement separate physics and sound engines with Ogre3d?
