Introduction

This is not a game itself, but a library you can use to make your own 3D games for Wii in a very easy way

History

This project started in the early 2008, in a spanish forum. The idea was about creating a complete game engine that almost anyone can easily use to quickly create amazing games. Core ideas that have always lead this project are:

  • Ease of use
  • Taking advantage of hardware to improve performance
  • High quality graphics and effects

First release of Revolution engine was in July 2008, with a very limited number of features. But as new versions arise, features get multiplied and engine becomes a useful tool, capable of so many things.

Version 0.4

Revolution Engine 0.4 is the first mature version of the engine, and so the first version published here at wiibrew.
