About Serious Engine 3
The Serious Engine 3 is a ground-up reworking of Croteam's proprietary game creation system, designed to fully exploit next-generation consoles and state-of-the art PC hardware. The systems' advanced multi-core HDR-rendering graphics system supports full per-pixel lighting and shadowing (including shadowbuffers) and boasts a custom GPU-accellerated baker for GI lightmaps. The system also incorporates a custom multi-threaded physics solver designed for better performance on multicore CPUs and built-in support for action-game models - such as FPS characters - which allows them to naturally interact with other physical objects.
