From Conitec oP group:
Gamestudio/A8 is the world's fastest authoring system for interactive 2D and 3D applications - for instance, computer games or test and simulation software. It offers three levels of access in one single package: Beginner: Click together computer games from pre-assembled game templates. A simple action or car racing game can be built in a few hours this way. Advanced: Do our tutorial and create commercial quality applications with the easy and effective lite-C scripting language. Use the included level and model editors to create the artwork for your project. Programmer: Include the A8 engine into your software using your preferred language - C++, C#, or Delphi. Create levels and models in the FBX format with high-end editors such as MAX or MAYA. Many tutorials introduce you into game programming. The monthly AUM magazine offers workshops, plug and play games, and a regular contest. And the AU resource site is a great spot for finding thousands of free models, levels, textures, and other resources that can be used in your Gamestudio applications.
