Hi,
I have talents and ambtion in most things related to game development, except programming.I have been looking for 3d game development software that doesn’t require programming for some time, but haven’t had any luck. I have experience using programs like Game Maker (2d) and Multimedia Fusion, I just wish that kind of language could be implemented into a 3d engine. So far I’ve looked at 3d game studio and Alice 3d (got stuck due to lack of documentation).

Might anyone recommend some software that’s easiest to learn? It doesn’t have to be something for making professional- style games of course, but I don’t want something like 3d Game Maker (from what I’ve seen its a very limited program, made mostly for kids to create their own games in minutes). Thanks for the help!

EDIT: I’m trying to make a 3rd person game. I was also hoping, if no such program out there exists, to find a programmer willing to create an engine for me based on a detailed description. I request that with the assumption that this is an easy task for some experienced people out there… thanks

I recommend: further “searching” and continued “learning” \~Nothings’ easy. :blink:

Sure, there are “basic” softwares for your concern. (which are sufficient) But,

you seem to be wanting something more “advanced” or, “professional”. I donno?

ref; {wiki} : ..and.. ‘good-luck’ :wallbash: [-there-are-tons-of-valuable-resources-]

perhaps, try a ‘ open souce’, engine. And, “create - something” to show us, what you would like to do? :rolleyes:

Unity is perfect for this. It is extremely easy to get started with and has an extremely useful community.
http://unity3d.com

It even comes with a full third person supermario style platformer example project.
With fully tweaked third person cameras, controllers, pickups etc.

Thanks for your helpful and creative post akagdk, and thanks Joachim.. For now I’ve decided to try unity3d. I haven’t finished downloading it yet, but this is probably the closest thing to what I was looking for. I really appreciate your help.
Edit: Oh this is TRULY a shame. It reqiures for me to have a mac, when I have a pc.
