Wicked Engine in 2023

The Wicked Engine is a free and open source game engine we’ve had our eyes on for a while. We first covered it back in 2019, then revisited it in 2022 then mentioned it in our Underrated Game Engines round-up just a few weeks back. Amazingly enough, since that video was produced, there have been three major developments on the game engine.

First, the game engine got a much needed website face lift! Second, announced in a pair of Tweets, Wicked Engine gained support for two major platforms, the Xbox Series and the PlayStation 5!

If you are looking for an open source C++ based game engine for Windows and Linux, with support for several different platforms, as well as Lua scripting support and a full functioning light weight game editor, Wicked Engine is certainly worth a look!
