Description

We position Alternativa3D as a high-tech engine that supports hardware acceleration for browser application development. Initially, the engine was designed to meet our own needs but we realized that it wouldn't be fair to limit the use of the technology to just one game. That is why we decided to make it an open source engine. Since our top priorities are high performance and resource efficiency, we recommend using it for games with high-resolution graphics.

We will gladly partner with ambitious professionals to develop features that will be used in large projects.

For Users

Repository

We offer the community not only use of the engine but involvement in its further development. If you have found a bug you can notify us about it. You can use repositories, create your own branches, experiment and recommend whatever changes you think should be made. All useful changes will be employed in the engine architecture, and your contribution will be made known to the public though facebook and twitter.

Alternativa3D - The current engine version.
Alternativa3DUtils - Add-ins and enhancers. You don't need to know the shader programming to create utilities, so feel free to experiement.
Alternativa3DExamples - Examples of using the engine with various features demonstrated. If we like your examples they will appear in the main repository branch.
