I am looking to play around with a 3d game engine.  While not a requirement, I am most familiar with Python and would love to try out a game engine  that supports it.  I am new to 3d games.  (I have programmed some 2d games in the past.)  I have assembled a list of game engines that interest me and was hoping to get your opinion on which are best in terms of features, ease of use, and performance.  I am aware that Python is slow.  I am not expecting amazing performance.  I just want to play around with a 3d game engine and am most familiar with Python.

 

Game Engines That Caught My Eye:

  • Panda3D
  • Python-Ogre
  • Soya3D (Supports Python3, Soya3 was just released.)
  • PyOpenGL + PyGame (I know it's a library, not a game engine, but I thought it should be put on this list.)
  • PySDL2 (Also a library.  I am not convinced it would be able to run 3d well.)

Hi

 

 

You look at Blender also a Python game engine (i am not a fan of it but you can try that)

 

 

HyperV

I am aware that Blender can be used as a game engine.  I just don't think it would be able to compare to a program that was built as a game engine first.

Out of your list my first inclination would be to suggest Panda3d... but what specific features do you need?  It's hard to make a specific recommendation if we don't know what features you might need and what sort of game you might be trying to make.
