sorry for responding a tad late, been extremely busy with work and school .
thanks for the input and help, i'll look into them. basically what i'm trying to do with the game (future end anyway) is to create the moba into a full game that i can run personally on my own client and servers etc (big dream i know, but i'll be starting off small with just having internal play testers and what not). i want the graphics to be mediocre 3d design with shadowing and the ability to show particles and what not, and the characters to be 3d themselves ofcourse.
other then that its just trying to find one that can offer me the ability to create the map, heroes, etc on a much easier engine since i'm new to this kind of programming. and with just prototyping it on that engine until my team and i make our own engine will just make it easier for us as a whole to just get the bugs fixed out for the characters, etc in the end.
thanks again for the help!
