As I recall Torque just went open source as well. Unreal is also available for those with programming skills.

Do you search for a game engine for your needs? Or what is this posting meant for? :)

Wiki tells me that there are quite a few more. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_game_engines" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; . Not that this list is complete by any means. Devmaster.net has another neat list: http://devmaster.net/devdb/engines" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

You list oldtimers here that i wouldn`t really recommend anymore. Like 3D Rad and 3Impact. Their development is stopped since a pretty while. That doesn`t make them useless. But there is better stuff nowadays. And riding a dead horse requires special skills as we trueSpace users knows ;)

The industry big boys have free versions nowadays. That`s the way to go when you want to make a game. Which makes the small and unknown game engines that you have listed here somehow obsolete. They can hardly compete with the big boys. Torque went free before a few days. Unity basic is free. UDK is free. There`s a free version of the cry engine, and so on.

Yeah, Unity, Unreal and Cryengine 3 are all free for non-commercial developers. One can see why these kind of smaller game engines are dying out. Unity is great for beginners and pros alike. Unreal is an all time classic for the traditional developer who wants a game that impresses. CryEngine though is for the ambitious, though I haven't seen many noteworthy projects made with this engine yet. This might become something though: http://www.moddb.com/games/stone-rage Used to be an Unreal project but they switched to CryEngine 3 a couple of months ago.

I think the ones he listed are just 3D engines, not necessarily Game Engines. But a handy list nontheless, for developers!

Re: List of free 3d engine.

I don`t know for the rest, but 3Impact is a game engine. 3D Rad is a non programming game development tool that uses the 3Impact game engine. It`s developed by the same developer. And HGE is a directX 2d game engine.

I also think that DX Studio looks interesting, but being just a smple model maker I get confused with all of the tasks involved with using 3D engines or game engines makes my tiny little brain ackum something fearse. ;)

I would like to add another MIT licensed ( engine; editor is GPL ) game engine to the mix:

http://www.maratis3d.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It started out as a blender supported engine , but has 3dsmax exporter for current 2013 only ( atm anyway), and collada support is on TODO .

It's a very nice , light engine with a more than sufficient Editor, which is something very have , and given its current features set I think it has a lot of promise.

The big boy engines as referred here to here were always tempting, but then the minute you want to consider making a few dollars you have to share, and while what they are asking isn't the moon ( for what you get with engine), I still like the freedom of MIT.

The thing that stands out for me anyway, is the very nice editor/player in one, which is something Very few OSS & free game engines can say right now. This one is actively supported obviously,and has many tutorials written for it by several different people, and the number of example games being done is started to rapidly pick up.
