Welcome to the PGE Project!



So what exactly is this? This is a free and open source game engine and toolkit, that allows to create games of platform genre.

The main and the most important idea of the project - to provide any user with a possibility to create platformers from existing media, that they already have or which they can draw by themselves. I found this idea in the SMBX fan game, but the main drawback of SMBX is strict data standard it uses and similarity 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 game engine(SMBX compatible) and a tool-kit for creating games.

I've been working on this project at least since December 2013, and after lots of hours spent in researching SMBX 1.3, I 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 deal with in the SMBX64 format(open/play/save) is very much in need.

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