Beta 3 of dimension3 Released
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A recent update to the iDevGames web site gives word that the third beta of the Mac OS X-only 3D engine dimension3 has been released. A number of changes have been made since the Beta 2 update, including new weapons, better documentation, and easier-to-understand example scripts. Would-be game developers are free to use dim3 as a base for their titles.

Here's a clip with details on Beta 3:

dim3 Beta 3 has been released. Getting close to locking down the object model and XML formats. An open-source copy of dim3 Animator will follow in a little while (the one there now, while labeled beta 3, is old).

Feel free to check it out; for those that haven't heard about it yet, it's a totally free 3D "game without content," an engine built specifically for content creators to make 3D games, using JavaScript as its scripting engine. OS X only.

Be sure to check out the developer diary being updated at iDevGames for more information, and download dim3 from the author's iDisk.
