GarageGames Q&A with Jeff Tunnell
7:10 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
A new interview with GarageGames president Jeff Tunnell has been posted at Action Vault, discussing V12, their licensable version of the Tribes 2 engine. This full 3D game engine will be available to any developer for a paltry $100 license, assuming you're willing to let GarageGames publish any titles you might make with it.
As we brought you word last week, a Mac version of V12 is in the works already, though only in a preliminary form yet. This could ensure any new GarageGames title using V12 could be compatible on the Mac, as well as possibly even bring the original Tribes 2 to the platform. Another benefit is that Mac developers will be able to pay the fee and start developing new games as well. Here's a clip from the Q&A noting the current status of the engine:
Action Vault: What progress has been made thus far on the V12 engine? When do you expect it to be ready for release?We'll keep on the GarageGames saga as the story develops. For more information, check out some of our past stories on the subject.
Jeff Tunnell: Tim and Rick are very close to having it ready for release to our Alpha testers who are GarageGames associates. We can't target a specific date until we get their feedback.
