    Game Development Resources


    Hey Everyone.

    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread with links to go tutorials or general information about making games.

    The link in the "First major program in C" by displeaser gave me the idea.


    Displeasers link: RogueLike Development

    an good OpenGL site: Nehe OpenGL (The tutorials here start really easy and by the end you are making some scary cool things.

    • para45 agrees
    • displeaser agrees : Good to have all the gamedev questions in one place
    • elsint agrees : People try to find good tutorials. Good idea!

    I found these useful in my research, maybe others will find them interesting as well. My primary interest is in OpenGL, so if you're looking for anything related to DirectX or actual game development (ie, non-rendering engine stuff) this list may not be helpful.

    Image Formats



    Other Resources



    More to come as I find them.

    Some excellent game engines:

    TrueVision 3D (supports .NET, C++, Delphi, Visual Basic). A far more advanced version will be coming out pretty soon:

    http://www.truevision3d.com/

    Ogre 3D (C++):

    http://www.ogre3d.org/

    Crystal Space (C++):

    http://www.crystalspace3d.org

    Delta 3D (C++, Python too, I thnk):

    http://www.delta3d.org

    A free MMORPG engine (C++, Python and Lua):

    http://www.kaneva.com/home.kaneva

    A budding game engine, based on the C# "Axiom" engine:

    http://realmforge.com/

    An easy to use (though a bit outdated) game engine based on the Genisis3D (mentioned by someone else):

    http://www.dhost.info/realityfactory/

    And here's the famous "Torque" game engine. It's not free, but it's only $100, and fairly easy to use. A more advanced version is coming out soon:

    http://www.garagegames.com/

    An excellent source of 3D models (free and not so free):

    http://www.turbosquid.com/

    • Viper_SB agrees : Nice list
    • para45 agrees : Good list. OGRE is just a rendering engine though.
