I stumbled across the CryEngine when doing some research into Physics engines for the C# programming language. How I got from C# to the C++ CryEngine 3 is still not known to me, but I made my way here and found myself highly intrigued towards it.
A little background:
I'm a .NET application developer, I'm familiar with all things C# (C-Sharp) related. I have knowledge in Java, C++, .NET Languages (VisualBasic, C#, etc.), PHP, and database programming such as MySQL and MSSQL stored procedures.
In any case, I'm no modeler -- and the reason I'm really
here, is because 6 years ago I had a vision of creating a game. 6 years ago, however, I didn't have the skill set I have today in the development of programs which is mandatory in the creation of game development.
Well, I'm back and ready to begin my long and treacherous journey back down that path -- with my new knowledge, looking of course to create the greatest game ever to exist.
I'll be going home later tonight to play with the CryEngine rather than work on the development of my own game engine, with hopes that it is everything I'm thinking it to be...
The game in question is going to be an "RPG" style
game. Think of it like Dark Souls meets Diablo kind of hack-in-slash.
Looking forward to being a part of this community for a long time to come, and even more so, getting to know you 3D Modelers out there, because I will seriously need your talents if I continue with CE3.
