Survey Says ...  
The path to knowledge begins with a single query ... in this case... why not use SQL?

Okay - I admit it - I am a data junkey! So when we decided to see what the present crop of game engines had to offer, the source of all editable light and knowledge in our galaxy - was the natural place to turn.

But quick - How many game engines are listed?

Answer: 171.

How many use Java? C++?

Answer: 13 for Java ... 67 for C++.

How many use the token 'GPL' in their license description?

Answer: 29

Next, how many C++ Frameworks tout a GPL or an MIT Moniker?

Answer: 22

Finally, if we might want to make any heavy cash on the desktop, what are the ones we should be investigating over the upcoming holiday?


"Aleph One"
Blend4Web
Blender
"Cafu Engine"
"Cocos2d & Cocos2d-x & Cocos2d-html5"
Construct
"Crystal Space"
Exult
"HPL Engine"
OGRE
PLIB
Pyrogenesis
"Retribution Engine"
Spring
Torque3D
"Visual Pinball"
"id Tech 4"


The above list of C++ & GPL frameworks came from:
sqlite> select name from GE where language like '%C++%' and Plat like '%indows%' and (license like '%MIT%' or license like '%GPL%') order by name;

So for those who are taking my SQL training, here is another fine set of query-fodder to enjoy - simply download the attached, use SQLite's .read command... and let those queries begin?
