Alternative To: 3D GameStudio

Own the engine that started the revolution. The ground-breaking technology behind Tribes continues to evolve and remains the best value in the game development industry. We even supply the Source Included to prove it!

Torque was built by pros and is used by pros. Vivendi, NC Soft, and even NASA have developed projects using TGE; use the same technology as the big boys for just $150.

TGE is a complete proven package for a wide range of applications, with a flexible and controllable in-engine 3D Toolset and award-winning TorqueNet networking.

Code in TorqueScript and/or C++, then run your game on PC, OSX, or even XBox360 (with separate license) with TGE's multi-platform CodeOnce feature... or bring your game into other Torque products, such as Torque Game Engine Advanced.

Torque - well worth its price

Torque is a sophisticated 2D/3D game engine for Windows and Linux. A free trial version can be downloaded from Garage Games' web site, and the pay version comes with the full source code. If you ever wanted to design your own game, the Torque game engine (TGE) is a good starting point. TGE comes with two example templates for a racer and a FPS game. Game design with TGE requires some serious scripting and 3D design, which makes it similar to other game engines. However, TGE comes with two key features that simplify game design: a powerful, C-like scripting language, and a built-in GUI world editor. With these features, TGE offers a much lower learning curve than for example, OGRE.

Torque has a very active community, and technical questions are usually quickly resolved.
