Unreal Engine has BlueScript


I will edit this list to include it in.

Thx I will add it.

· Apr 2018 · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam suggest WiMi5

Blender: Turns out it's also a game engine, with visual scripting!
Playmaker (for Unity3D): Perhaps the most elegant option here, very accessible and easy to read; though not the best at very complex tasks.
uScript (for Unity3D): Based on the same principles as Unreal Engine's visual scripting.


I will add blender but for unity, I may not add it because of playmaker and uscript as they are plugins and the main purpose for this list to give knowledge about game engines for making complete games without knowledge in coding. I will review this links in order to make sure that every game engine is added.
