Now that Armory3D is fully funded an installable version will be available for download any day now. Armory is a game engine built using the Haxe programming language over the Kha framework that runs inside the open source graphics application Blender. The timing of this release is ideal, as it was recently announced the Blender Game Engine is being removed from Blender.
Armory is a game engine I’ve been excited for for some time now. You can learn more about Armory here, access the complete documentation here and download the source code here. Additionally there are a series of examples available here with more complicated/complete templates available here. Hopefully the full version will be available for download in the next few days.
I fully intend to do a tutorial series covering using the Armory game engine, which hopefully I will be launching soon. However in the meantime I created this introduction to Armory which should illustrate to you why this engine has me as excited as it does. Of course being built on top of Blender, you are also going to have a solid understanding of Blender to make used of Armory3D. Thankfully, I’ve got you covered there with both a text based and video based Blender tutorial series to get you started.
