Show your Magic !!

The base is ready, after several meetings online and off-line, the roots for the new open-source (to be very soon) game engine project are ready.

Its name, MAGE. Well because it is going to be a mage, and amaze the world (the western world, like the mages(moghs مغ) did in ancient persia) but also because it stands for : Multi-threaded All-purpose Game Engine.

Here is the main page for the website of MAGE so far. It is an embryo right now getting ready to be born.

The M part is an important design decision for the overall architecture as the modern machines are all moving towards supporting multiple cores and multiple CPUs. The A means it will not focus on a specific genre and try to be as neutral in that aspect as possible.

The logo is inspired by the actual stone carvings in Persepolis showing a magus.
