Series of exclusive articles looking at game engines available to read online now

A special set of features looking at the game engine market are now available to read on Developmag.com.

Our headline feature 'Gentlemen, Start Your Engines' is an in-depth examination into the tough decision many developers face: do you licence a third party engine like those available from Epic or Emergent, or do you build your own in-house version from scratch?

Both sides of the coin are well argued by their various proponents, as we talk to Epic, Emergent, Blitz Games, Frontier, Rebellion, Codemasters, Valve, Vicious, Bigworld and others.

We also go in-depth with the biggest third party engine vendor currently on the market in an exclusive interview with Mark Rein, VP of Epic Games, called 'Epic Choices'.

Then we talk to the CTOs from three leading developers in a dedicated roundtable discussion, 'In-house Party'.

Plus, we've also got an editorial about 'Engine troubles' (recently printed in the September issue of Develop) up for you to read. And we will be following up with more engine-focused editorial next week.
