Development of a 3D Multiplayer Racing Game

Development of a 3D Multiplayer Racing Game: "Racing games are one of the most popular categories of games and their development has always been a challenge to the game programmer, due to their demands in computer resources and fast networks. Most commercial games have been developed in C++, which is a mature programming language used by experienced programmers in the industry. However, network development, mobile gadgets, and hardware development have highlighted the need for a dynamic, continuously developed, portable, and object-oriented programming language for game development. Java seems to have these characteristics and sometimes can be faster than C++. The traditional game industry can also gain from Java. New game consoles are based on network services and there are thoughts of establishing Java as a mainstream technology in game development in the future."
