Octane is a free, open-source GameMaker.
Octane will be a good solution for both game making beginners and experts alike. For beginners because of no need to code a simple game; for experts because of its advanced (full) Python scripting and full source code access.
Octane is written in Python – a great object-oriented programming language. OpenGL runs the games. Because of OpenGL, Octane delivers an easier way to make games running at blazing fast speeds.
- Completely rewriten core
- Full object events-and-actions support
- Full scene support
- I left Pyglet/Rabbyt (because of Vista and some Linux isssues) but migrated to OpenGL
- Awesome scene editing
- View Code dialog
- Resource packing
- Correction of more bugs
- Many, many more things
Note for Linux:
Octane is completely developed in Windows and tested in only Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. However, I DO know that Octane’s Linux dependencies are:
- > or = python 2.6
- MUST > or = pyqt 4.5
(Works best under sudo.)
