Well i was thinking the other day, “Wouldn’t it be cool if Blender was merged with Game Maker?”
For those of you who don’t know what Game Maker is, it’s a really great program for developing games. You can make very advanced and complicated games using either drag and drop or code interface. The only problem is that it’s not very good at making 3D games. This is where I thought blender would be cool.
In Game Maker, there is room view. In room view you position all the objects and tiles (backgronds), and that is the game environment. There can be multiple rooms. Instead of room editing to be only in 2D view, it could be 3D, like the blender 3d view…
In Game Maker, you add a bunch of sprites which are just image files. Blender + Game Maker would have 3D objects instead of sprites, maybe .obj or something…
The actual coding system for making games would be the Game Maker version, since it would not be to difficult to tweak it to work in 3D. It used x and y movement, how hard could it be to add a z variable?
OK, well i know some of you are going to say: “Blender already has a good game engine and its getting better!”. I understand, but this would still be cool because there would be a lot of cool games being made because Game Maker has a very big online community.
Well yeah, that’s my idea.
