Maratis 3d - Cafu - Gameplay
Posted 23 May 2012 - 09:03 AM
However i would try other tricks as possible when ever i can avoid scripting.
Which would be the easiest of these three engines as they are now..
If you know an easier than these that is also free ,let me know.
There is gameplay which looks to me clean and trusty and supports platforms like android etc but i doubt it has editors yet and that is light enough for me to use.
So next choice would be maratis which says can work on mobile also.
and there is cafu
I will check more the docs of these engines to see what they can do out of the box ,but would like a second opinion.

Maratis is quite nice as well. Again. pretty clean architecture, and a promising level editor. You may not even need to dip into C++ to build the game (or at least not much) since a lot can be accomplished with the level editor and lua script behaviors. Lua coding is still coding though, and there's no way around that, it's just much easier and there's a platformer-ish sample provided you can work from.
Cafu absolutely requires code. I've spent some time reading Cafu's source code and it's rather messier than the above two. Also it's GPL license is far, far more restrictive than GamePlay's Apache 2.0 and Maratis' ZLIB licenses, which combined with the less readable code was enough to turn me off working with it.

Except maratis ,i heard Sandbox game maker,is quite easy and includes a side scroller demo.
If it is simple as many say i might try that also.
Maratis 3ds max exporter seems not finished yet,so far supporting Blender as modeler,and so
