Start a project, pick your plugins, and create your game. Or at least, thats how it's going to work - we're still in the early alpha stages, so stick around!
There are no public downloads yet, so if you're interested in trying it out, consider joining our Discord!
The allfathers' domain. jac and bonzairob maintain and update the Core, encompassing all.
3dPƐ is written in Python, using WX, Pygame, OpenGL and other libraries.
Plugins add states to the core - like overworlds and battle systems. Perhaps you want a 2D MMO, or maybe 2D sprites in a 3D world? Turn-based or realtime battles? Pick the right plugins for your project to make it happen.
Are you a python dev who wants to make something interesting? Come make plugins with us!
Got a cool game idea? Fed up of RPGMaker and the rest? Have a look at what other people are making with 3dPƐ and its plugins.
The Core is the prism through which your plugins and games shine.
For plugin developers, the Core provides standardised access to system info, Pygame, WX and OpenGL, along with image manipulation, audio playback, git-friendly data storage for game project versioning, and a load of useful utilities and classes.
The end result is that you run the Core, which loads the Game, which decides what Plugins to load and run. Plugin engine!
The breadth of the Core's functions will be expanded in the future, to act as a hub for game developers, as well as compiling into the lightweight wrapper for finished games.
3bot is our mascot, and the hardest worker.
He likes helping people look their best in the Discord, keeping people up to date with dev updates, and long rolls on the beach.
He was designed by Moppy.
3dPƐ has been featured twice in the Eevee Expo, a collection of monster catching fangame trailers, interviews and and tech demos.
The first Eevee Expo debuted on the 7th of August 2022, and featured this video where I go over how to make a map in the WorldBuilder plugin.
In the second Eevee Expo on the 5th of March 2023, I went over future plans for importing animated models, the StageFight battle plugin, and online multiplayer.
