Flax Engine 0.6 beta released, adds Linux support

Posted by , | Views: 20,954

Nice to see even more game engines add Linux support. Flax Engine is one we covered recently, after they announced their plans to support Linux and now it has arrived.

Linux support comes with their Vulkan rendering system, allowing developers to support desktop Linux and cloud gaming too.

Another major feature added in this build of Flax is a system to animate scenes, directly in their tool. Handy for a lot of different reasons including cut-scene creation, object animation, UI animation and a ton more as you can animate basically anything in the scene. You can read a lot more about how their Scene Animations work here. It does sound incredibly useful for game developers.

The Flax Editor was also upgraded to support High-DPI, improved editor text quality, an Output Log window for help when debugging and more.

Currently, Flax is only available to those who reach out to their team as they're going through closed testing, with it opening up to the public likely in February next year. Even with all the recent advancements, I still don't quite get the market they're after, as I detailed in the previous article given their licensing.

See their announcement here about the new 0.6 release.

This is cool and stuff but, is really "hot news" having another C# game engine, and this time is even unreleased, out there when there are already shittons of them in the wild?

I'm not sure if this is directed at us writing about it or just about it existing in general. If it's about it being on GOL: We cover anything and everything around Linux + Gaming
