I'm inspired to create a community based game, and I'm looking for a free game engine for the PC and eventually mobile (low priority). I have good knowledge of Java and C# and willing to learn other languages like C and C++, so language is no problem.

The game itself is pretty simple. It's turn based, and you click on choices for your turn. It connects to a main server, which utilizes a database that contains user information like stats. Also, I'd like it to have a built in chat system, like an integrated IRC.

I'm not sure if I need 3D support, but I just want it to look as good as this one: http://bbsimg.ngfile...90715b1cd3e.jpg
So maybe openGL or DirectX support?

I just downloaded the Unity game engine, but I'm not really sure if this engine is too complex for my game. It might end up just slowing down a simple game.

I'm quite new at developing games, and I'd very much appreciate it if you help me start up. Thanks

I found RakNet and it's looking quite good so far.

I also heard Unity uses RakNet as well. I'm a little confused with Unity's features though. It seems that Unity is focused more on Adventure type games? The game I have in mind is not adventure at all. It's like those online Board games on Yahoo games. I'm wondering if I can achieve such a game with Unity? Or will I have to somewhat start from scratch with RakNet?

Thanks

Unity sounds fine for what you want to do, don't worry about slowing it down for now. Hardware optimisation can come later just make it work then you can look at maybe stripping down the code a little bit. Hope this helps mate :)

I'm also looking into using PHP/MySQL for username storage and statistics recording. Does Unity support this?
