I just finished publishing the GameFromScratch 3D Engine round-up. This is a guide to the top game engines in use by game developers today, that are available to be licensed. There are a total of 20 engines on the list, and for each one it includes the platforms it runs on, the platforms it can target, the price, sample games, the books available if any, key websites ( generally the forum and wiki or documentation pages if available ), programming language supported and example games published with the engine.
I have a similar round-up in the works for 2D game engines, which I hope to publish shortly. Additionally, I have already published a similar document for HTML5 game engines. I made the horrific mistake of authoring the guide in Word ( what was I thinking!??! ), and as a result the fonts are a little wonky in Chrome. Hopefully I can find and kill this annoying trait.
If I made any mistakes, or I missed a key engine, please let me know. Hopefully you find the 3D engine round-up useful!
