Thoughts on Engines
You could ask me: why produce another engine? Indeed, nowadays on the market there is a sufficient number of popular engines starting with the letter «U» and other beautiful letters. And this is great. But I think that there should always be a place for some alternative. The industry does not stand still, the world is changing. Some technologies come, others go, and some are no longer supported for various reasons, which are not always clear to me.
So why create another engine after all? Probably in 2021, it makes no sense to create a game engine from scratch. But Verus Engine started its life around 2007, when things were different. It was developed in parallel with other engines. And now it exists and does not need to be created from scratch. This is not the engine that was built yesterday. Some stable parts of Verus Engine are over ten years old. However, in 2020 it underwent significant changes and was seriously rejuvenated.
