Welcome to the PGE Project!



So what exactly is this? This is an free and open source game engine and toolkit which giving able to create games of platform genre.

The main and important idea of project - to give possible for any user to creating platform games from exists media which you have or which you can draw yourself. This idea I found in the SMBX fan game, but main deficiency of SMBX is a strict data standard and closing to the Mario fan game series.

Engine is going to be 100% compatible with SMBX to support lot of existing levels and episodes made for this game engine. The main parts it would contain would be a (SMBX compatible) game engine and a tool-kit for creating games.

I've been working on this project since at least December 2013, and after lots of hours spent in researching SMBX 1.3, I've figured out a way to retain compatibility with SMBX. This in my opinion, is very significant as there are a lot of episodes and levels made for SMBX out there. And having a better program that can open/play/save in the SMBX64 format is very much in need.

This Project is currently under construction, as of now, everything is available for the review and the testing.
