dim3 Preview Released
12:14 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Brian Barnes of Klink! Software has announced the release of a public preview of dim3, their 3D game engine for OS X. This freeware engine is open and available for anyone to use (though there are license fees if you end up charging for any games made with dim3). Here's more info on dim3 from the press release:

Klink! Software has released a tech preview of their 3D game creation
system, dimension 3. dim3 is a "game without content," it's a platform
designed for mod makers to make their own 3D games. dim3 is designed
for rapid-development of unique creations.

This is a preview of what the final system will be. It has missing
pieces, and there are no editors, but it will give you an idea of how
the engine works. This release is for those who are starting a game or
looking for an engine to use, and for us to gather feedback from those
people to see how dim3 can be made better.

Of course, if you're just curious, you're welcome to kick the wheels!

Requirements is a G3 or G4, OS X 10.0.3 or better, and a OpenGL
accelerated 3D card.

Any would-be game makers should be sure to give dim3 a look. Keep in mind it is still in an unfinished state and may have a few missing features. The 1.5MB download should be easy on anyone's connection, however.
