Hello, this is my first time on this website and I was looking for a suggestion for a game engine. I have been searching for a game engine that is suitable to my needs for nearly a week and have not found one.

What I would like to accomplish with the game engine:
1) I would like to create an isometric game similar to habbo hotel or disney VMK where you have a personal area that you can customize with furniture, etc. I would like for the user of my game to build entire houses or close to it. and be able to go into a larger world as in vmk or habbo.
2) I would like the language to be similar to python as I am somewhat familiar to it.
3) I do not care if you have to pay for the software as long as it is not like $1K also would like the software to come from a trusted place like adobe, garagegames, etc.
4) I am aware that the game engine the creators of habbo use is called fuse and if there is a version of that for the public to use, that would be perfect.
5) The game also should be a massively multiplayer game.
6) Since I am not a computer programming genius, Simplicity of use is the most important feature.

I am not sure if such a game engine exists that includes what I have told you, so if it doesn't have all of the features, it is fine.
Thanks a ton, if I think of anything I missed I will post it.

have you check game maker (yoyogames)? i know it's not isometrix, but i think it have a plug-in thingy that make it easier to make isometrik game, AFAIK.

but it was a long time ago (although game maker still active). but it wasn't that hard, i mean, gamemaker even allow you to have isometrix grid option to design your map.

well, I have tried Game maker 8 and I wasn't too impressed with it because it didn't seem to be very powerful. Also I havn't seen any games that were made w/ gm8 that looked very good.

I'm not sure if I stressed it enough initially, I want this game to be massively multiplayer, so any info on getting it to be an mmo would be fantastic.

Also I don't care if it's paid or not, as long as it isn't alot of money. Don't feel like you have to stay inside the freeware barrier.

kind sir, not to insult, but have you really tried google?

maybe you're using wrong key word, but I found this:

which lead to this:

Anyway, USD 50.00 to create MMORGP isomerix? I hope you enjoy your journey :-)


here's another

not isometrix, though, but I think you can code that in - just move diagonally, among others.

PS - i know I ask questions here too, but only I did enough googling & research. and at times, about things that hard to google about.
