Unigine v0.3 Released

Unigine v0.3 (an engine for games and virtual reality systems) has been released. It is a next version of Engine v0.2 from frustum.org, after a year of hard work. Unigine v0.3 sources are more than 3 times bigger than v0.2, old code is almost fully rewritten and extremely optimized. Right now Unigine contains graphics engine (with HDR and soft shadows support), physics engine (with ragdoll, fluid buoyancy, ray car, joints destruction support), easy-to-use C++ API, script interpreter with C-like syntax and virtual 3D GUI. Supported platforms are Windows and Linux.

Overview

Unigine Team has officially released Unigine v0.3, an engine for games and virtual reality systems. It is a next version of Engine v0.2 from frustum.org, after a year of hard work.
