Radishworks offers Cosmos
Creator, a tool to make 3D scenes into games, and present over
the web. Interesting new player:
"Radish Works has just released its Cosmos Creator- a game engine that contains a robust modelling/animation/texture editor, all rolled into one! Modelling and textures are designed (but not limited) to be created procedurally, creating ridiculously small files. There is no compiling necessary, so the user can switch between edit mode and play mode with the click of a button- many parameters and animation events can even be adjusted while in play mode.
Cosmos can be used free for 30 days, it comes with over 30mgs of help files and tutorials- we also have a forum for helping with feature questions, bug reports, and showing off work

which is an interpretive environment upon which Wings3d is written)
if the swiss can protect the Pope, then they should be able to make a
for games. Bingo!
