    Default Awesome!

    Awesome!

    Wow, it looks great! It looks stunning!
    It looks on par with Unreal Engine, Unigine, and CryEngine.

    The first edition; Torque Game Engine has Linux support, albeit this is an engine which hasen't been updated for like six years. Later iterations Torque Game Engine Advanced and Torque3D never had Linux support. This might change now but as it is this has very little Linux relevance.

    Awesome! I used to live in Eugene Oregon (where Garage Games is) and almost got a internship there a few years ago It's great to see them supporting Linux and Open Source. I will try and contribute

    I'm sorry if I sound like a dick, but if THAT is their tech demo... it's lightyears behind any of those engines. At least graphically speaking.

    meh, you'll have free access to the source; you can make Torque 3D do whatever the hell you want it to without paying royalties on profit over $50,000 for the UDK, $30,000 for a license of Unigen, or $1.2 million for a license of CryEngine 3.
