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?

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.

We'll keep on the GarageGames saga as the story develops. For more information, check out some of our past stories on the subject.
