Overview[edit | edit source]
GameCore is an integrated development environment for making 3d games for PC / Mac & the Web. Comes complete with a range of 'templates' (starter projects to help you to begin the process of making your game) and has a fairly good set of prefab objects as well that you can drop into your game easily.
With an emphasis on 'visual editing', GameCore is a 'multi-mode' development environment that can be used to easily switch between 3d world creation, front-end 'menu' editing, fx / particle editing and much more.
The official site has alot more info about the tool, and there have been a few games released recently with it.
Training / Documentation[edit | edit source]
There are a range of video tutorials on the GameCore YouTube channel to help you getting started & seem to be adding new ones fairly regularly: GameCore YouTube Channel
VMach Media, a company out of the UK, offers a 12 week 'making games course' using GameCore that is fairly well-regarded by the community: GameCore Training / Course
Licensing[edit | edit source]
GameCore licensing is the usual 'Indie / Pro / Studio' model that the other similar toolset's have. The Indie version was recently made FREE, likely in response to UDK / Unity's earlier announcements.
- Indie License - $FREE
- Professional License - $1499
- Studio License - contact
