Thanks to PCs and game consoles like the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, 3D (three-dimensional) games are becoming more popular with video game enthusiasts. Several software developers have introduced 3D game creation tools to keep up with this trend. Using these software tools, you can build your own 3D games that you can later distribute for free or sell to gamers worldwide.
