V12 Nears First Release [Updated]
3:45 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The GarageGames site has received an update today noting that their
license-friendly game engine V12, derived from the Tribes 2 engine, is now getting very near to release.
Apparently the recent builds have been approved by Sierra, and they just need to
make some web site tweaks before they're ready to start licensing the code
for the very low price of $100 per non-commercial developer.

V12 should include nearly all of the tools necessary
to make games on the Mac as well, if you are an interested developer. David Chait is working hard on the Mac side
of V12 to get it up to speed. [Update: Tim Gift has informed us that the Mac client and code of V12 will have a slight delay behind the PC version, due to the last-minute integration of a new technology.]

Here's a clip from GarageGames' Tim Gift on the project's status:

The latest version submitted to Sierra has been approved, and according to
Sierra is now "Tribes 2" free. This was the last hurdle to jump through, and we
are now cleared for release. Just a few things left on the to-do list, including
some web related changes to support basic e-commerce, and the private V12
For much more info on V12, including what it will mean for Mac gamers, be sure to
read through our interview with Tim Gift, posted yesterday.
