Gamebryo supports much more than 3D rendering, but 3D rendering is what it is best known for. Many game engines are normally more strict as to what and how things can be included in a game.

Though it uses a proprietary renderer, Gamebryo does not limit what type of graphics must or can be included in a game. A Gamebryo license comes with full source code so game-specific code can be added wherever a game programmer pleases. Gamebryo comes with 3500 pages of fully indexed and searchable documentation. Source code (commonly just source or code) is any series of statements written in some human-readable computer programming language. ...
