In Blender you can use a script in Python to write logic to games, create tools and scripts.
On the Internet there are plenty of guides, tutorials, video lessons on Blender. Many additions — models, textures, plugins, Python scripts, library materials, and more. Therefore, to master the program by yourself will not be so difficult, also there are many forums and community program.
An important feature of the program is its small size, comparable to that of 10-20 megabytes after installation. Blender can run on many operating systems, among them Linux, Windows, MacOS, Solaris, Irix, and others.
The program is free under the GNU GPL open source.
Using Blender created gorgeous short cartoons. And in 2010, a non-profit organization Blender Foundation has done a very high quality cartoon Sintel. During the first week after the release of the cartoon in the light, it was viewed more than a million users.
