GarageGames Interview
9:23 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

UGO has posted the results of an interview with Jay Moore, ever-present Evangelist for GarageGames. A company that started with the Torque Engine, GG has published several titles, and continues to expand their available technologies.

While the main bulk of the interview focuses on the history and philosophy behind GG, other questions are raised, including new directions that are currently being explored:

I think some of the ideas about integrating game community into the game and building new play spaces for games could be some interesting new ground. I think the foundational idea that the GG community is built on 'World Domination Through Collaboration," is a new avenue - working together in the spirit of OpenSource to build tools for professional quality commercial game development is a very big idea. Questions like these are usually best answered in hindsight once serious new ground has been broken, but right now there is interesting work going on in most of the key places that every dev. team has to innovate on - physics, AI, art pipeline, backend services.
Also discussed in the interview are opinions about contributing programmers, various changes to the engine over the years, and plans for the future.
