Its a free, open source game engine, made especially for Java game developers who want to create 3D games using modern technology. The software is programmed entirely in Java, intended for wide accessibility and quick deployment.
Its not a visual RPG Maker or an FPS modder. Youll get the most out of the engine if you bring some programming aptitude to the table. Pace yourself, and jMonkeyEngine can be a starting point for any aspiring 3D games developer.
Done Right, Java can be blazing fast. To be blunt: Java will always be easier to Do Right than C++. We provide Java developers with the tools they need to make highly performant 3D games on par with any other engine out there, without the headaches of compiler code.
jMonkeyEngine is extensible by design, and doesnt try to tell you how to make your game. The New BSD License means you are free to do whatever youd like with our code. And if youd like to share something back, the jME3 SDK brings its very own plugin framework with automatic updates.
