Sure, we’ll gonna support them!
Good luck to the project!

great , good luck for them :slight_smile: , they gonna use CS instead of BGE :frowning:

good luck to the team!

:rolleyes:Sweet. I’m hoping they’ll document the entire game creation process.

Ya it’s too bad they don’t develop the BGE, I know Zaghaghi is working on volumetrics for the renderer part of Blender for the moment, but he’ll be back to developing the BGE, perhaps one of his priorities would be to clean, optimize, and document the BGE code to encourage more development. He still comes, his profile states he’s been here fairly recently.

the documenting of code to help others develop the engine would certainly be helpful…

That’s good news! I’m behind them all the way; wish MGP could meet together in person and really cook something up…
