Phoenix3D 360° photo-realistic pre render game engine
I did made a list of Most well known game engines here I did forgot to post one of the best old realistic game engines Phoenix3D Phoenix VR middleware, developed by 4X Technologies S.A, for 360° photo-realistic pre render click and point adventure games. Some of the best Dracula games whas made by this. You can buy the old Dracula games at GOG at reduced pries now. The company that made that engine is no longer around and closed maybe this can give some ideas for new game developers.
