GarageGames, a leading technology provider for independent game developers, has released version 1.7 of their Torque Game Engine Advanced. In addition to offering support for most high-end video cards and now with rendering fallbacks all the way to DirectX 8, TGEA 1.7 comes with new game examples to allow users to quickly prototype and produce PC games. With TGEA, developers can harness cutting edge shaders produced with 3rd party tools and apply post processing effects like glow, bloom, HDR, FSAA and other features of modern game development.
