How to design a ‘ginger’ software engine
- by admin
If you’ve been thinking about creating your own software engine, it might be time to look elsewhere.
But first, there’s one more step you need to take.
Ginger is a gingerbread-style digital game, created by the makers of the hugely popular ‘Bumblebee’ video game series.
The software was developed by the company GINGER, a company that has made digital games like ‘The Sims’, ‘Bunny’ and ‘Fruit Ninja’.
Ginger’s software was released in 2007 and since then, it’s been downloaded more than 500 million times.
It’s not clear how the software was created, but GINGE was founded by two men, Michael Rennie and John Wray.
Rennie, who runs the GINGERTools software development team, told BBC News he created Ginger with the intention of being a simple, fast-paced game.
But the game has become something of a cult favourite, with people playing it on their own devices for up to 30 minutes at a time.
Rennies team has since released the game as a commercial download on the Steam platform.
“I’ve been able to see that there’s a lot of interest and it’s becoming a lot more popular,” Rennies told BBC.
Ginger was developed using a game engine known as Unity.
“The idea was to create a simple game that was easy to develop, easy to learn, and easy to share,” Rynie explained.
“It was all done in the Unity editor, so it’s really simple to get started.”
But I think it’s the closest thing to a real-time strategy game that I’ve ever worked on.
“I wanted to create something that was quick, that could be played on my laptop, and I thought if I could do that with Ginger, I would do it with any game engine.
John Wray, who co-created Ginger, said it was an exciting time for the company.”
We started out just using Unity as a base to develop Ginger, but then it just started to evolve into what it is today,” he said.”
Ginger has been really successful.
People have really enjoyed playing Ginger, and it was a lot easier than it had ever been to make.
“The Ginger team’s latest game, Ginger: A Pirate Adventure, launched last year on Steam and was downloaded more that 100 million times in just one day.
It features a pirate captain who wants to plunder the treasure of the Spice Isles.”
People just want to play Ginger and they want to learn the game. “
The fact that it has been downloaded so many times is just extraordinary.”

And it’s just so fun to see people enjoying it so much, so that’s what’s so special about it.
“Ginger: A pirate adventure game (GINGER)On a rainy day in 2011, I went to work on Ginger.
It was a very quiet day, which is great, because if I go to work, it just looks like I’m on my phone playing some other game.
So we’re sitting in my office and we have this huge screen.
I think I’m trying to make Ginger look better.
I’m doing this big painting of Ginger on it.
I was really trying to do that.
So we were going to get to the end of the day and then I realised that there was no way I could paint it that way.
It looked like I was just painting the whole thing over.
And that’s when I said, well, I’ll just stop and paint it.
And I started to paint it on a regular basis.
It started to get a little messy, and then it started to feel like it was becoming too much for me.
So I went home and I started thinking about what I was going to do.
And then I thought, well I’ll create my own engine, and that’s it.
It took us a while to figure out how to do it.
We’re not really good at software development, so we just started by using an existing engine that I had lying around.
It’s called Unity, and the basic idea is to create an engine with a very simple design, and to use it to make all kinds of things.
We started off with a few simple things.
We were making some little puzzles.
The problem was that we could only do that for a very short time.
So at that point we were doing it for one hour and that was it.
We then decided that we needed to create more complex things.
Gingers basic game design is very simple, and is made up of several layers of software:Ginger: A Treasure Hunter (GingER: A Treasure Hunter)Gingering uses a 3D engine, which means it’s based on the Unity
