Freescape Engine
NoLogo.png
Founded 1987-??-??
Last Release 1992-??-??

Freescape Engine is a 3D game engine developed by Incentive Software and used in several games from 1987 to 1992. The Freescape engine is one of the first fully-3D game engines (released for 7 platforms, no less), although it was quite limited and didn't support shading or textured surfaces.

Since Freescape is a game engine rather than a series, not many composers or songs are shared throughout the various releases.

Games

Driller (aka Space Station Oblivion)

Total Eclipse

Dark Side

Total Eclipse 2: The Sphinx Jinxs

Castle Master

Catle Master II: The Crypt

3D Konstruction Kit (aka Visual Reality Studio)

3D Konstruction Kit II (aka Visual Reality Studio 2.0)

Remakes

Those remakes of the Freescape games don't use the original engine, just simular or superior. But they share the same story with original games.

Another games using Freescape Engine

They don't have the same setting or story, just use the same engine for fan games made via 3D Konstruction Kit I or II.

  • Dark Side - Loader from Dark Side games.
