A full featured multi-platform game engine including graphics, physics, sound/music, own collision library, networking, 3DS MAX exporter, different model importers, character animation and a lot more. The engine has been first publicly presented at ECTS 2004 in London. The SDK provides full API documentation, samples, tutorials and reference games.

  • Tessellation
  • Provides several ways of creating geometry, which can be selected depending on different factors
  • Bezier surfaces and subdivision surfaces can be used to create fast and good looking landscapes and levels

Scene Management

  • General
  • Occlusion Culling
  • LOD
  • Provides a hierarchical scenegraph
  • Uses an optimized R-Tree (also with option to use frame coherency) for frustum culling and all other spatial queries
  • LOD is provided through dynamically generated geometry (e.g. bezier patches, subdivision surfaces)

  • Collision Detection
  • Rigid Body
  • Vehicle Physics
  • Supports collisions against triangle meshes
  • Physics is currently implemented using ODE


  • Client-Server
  • Peer-to-Peer
  • Master Server Additionally provides a versatile socket abstraction and a std::iostream compatible TCP stream

Artificial Intelligence

  • Pathfinding
  • Provides some basic classes like optimized A* and utility functions


  • 2D Sound
  • 3D Sound
  • Streaming Sound
  • Supports OpenAL for sound effect and music
  • Uses libmpeg or ffmpeg for streaming sound
  • Supports FMOD als an alternative to OpenAL

Tools & Editors

Provides an editor framework which can be used to create custom and powerful editors for the specific game
