Game Development Tools


Game development is not just about fun and entertainment, it is serious business for some. Professional game developers around the world develop robust and interactive games for both the computer and mobile platform. Just about a few years back, computer games were more popular compared to mobile games but these days mobile games are matching the PC games shoulder to shoulder. With multi-player and 3D graphics making their way into mobile gaming industry, they have become very popular.

 

The easiest way for custom development of games is to outsource it to offshore development centers around the world. In such centers, expert developers engage in game development for clients. They use the latest technology and platforms for the development of games. Some of these technologies are as listed below:

 

Popular Game Development Tools

 

Autodesk Maya – A favorite among all, this is 3D computer graphics software, which runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Developers work in a virtual workspace creating scenes, which can be saved in varied formats, the default being .mb (Maya Binary). Maya is equipped with its very own cross-platform scripting language, fittingly called Maya Embedded Language. This also helps in customizing the core functionality of the software.

 

3ds Max – Another gem from Autodesk 3d Max is a modeling, animation and rendering package. The modeling capabilities include flexible plugin architecture and can be used on the Microsoft Windows platform.  Video game developers use this for TV commercial studios and architectural visualization studios.

 

Adobe Flash – This has made online games a revolution among masses. Small interactive games are all developed in Flash and off late it is being used for the development of RIAs (Rich Internet Applications). What makes Flash so powerful is the use of ActionScript, which is an object-oriented language.

 

UNITY - Unity is an integrated authoring tool for creating 3D video games or other interactive content and used as ‘Develop once, publish everywhere!’ model. It can be used for architectural visualizations or real-time 3D animations. It can be used for the iPhone games as well as other platforms such as Google Android.

 

Cocos2D - It is an open source 2D game framework being widely used in mobile game development. There are two versions, one written in Python and one written in Objective C targeting iOS. The API comes integrated with Box2D and Chipmunk game engines

 

Blender Game Engine – Popular for mobile games, Blender game engine is an open-source comprehensive 3D production suite, used for making real-time interactive content. Written from scratch in C++ this has been made an independent component. Blender game engine includes support for features such as Python scripting and OpenAL 3D sound.
