    Default what are game engine

    i was looking on tutorial online on game programming in java. and a lot of tutorial where name 'how to create game engine' etc... and they start teaching to how to program a game in java.

    but my understanding was that game engine are software ex blender, udk editor etc.

    'how to create game engine' would be if some one is teaching how to create blender, udk editor etc. so why do people say that in title?

    i might be wrong so can some one explain this to me?

    Default Re: what are game engine

    A game engine is a system designed for the creation and development of video games. The leading game engines provide a software framework that developers use to create games for video game consoles and personal computers. The core functionality typically provided by a game engine includes a rendering engine (“renderer”) for 2D or 3D graphics, a physics engine or collision detection (and collision response), sound, scripting, animation, artificial intelligence, networking, streaming, memory management, threading, localization support, and a scene graph. The process of game development is often economized, in large part, by reusing/adapting the same game engine to create different games, or to make it easier to "port" games to multiple platforms.

    i don't know if this is what u needed or if u already know this hope it helps
