dimension 3 Game Engine Update
8:58 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Brian Barnes sent IMG a quick note about his work on the OS X 3D gaming engine dimension 3. It seems progress on the engine is going well, and an initial public release should be out soon. dim3 will be released for free to the general public, allowing experienced programmers to make any sort of game they might want. Game authors who end up charging money for a title made with dim3 will need to pay a royalty fee, as you might expect. Here's a clip with more:

A quick note on what's going on with dim3. The next release will be a
public "tech preview." It will feature a nearly complete engine, plus
some demo maps, scripts, and models so you can see how everything is put
together. No editors will be included as they aren't ready for

The date I'm shooting for is next Friday.

For those who don't know, dim3 is a modern 3D-OpenGL game without
content, designed exclusively for mod makers, using well-known
JavaScript as it's scripting language. Instead of building or editing
pieces of another companies game or starting from scratch, you can use
your skills to produce a wholly original and unique entity. dim3 is the
first RAD (Rapid-Application-Development) platform for 3D games!
