Beenox Studios has released its revised role-playing game development tool, Coldstone Game Engine.

The engine offers a multi-layer graphic system, so it's possible to create realistic nature elements such as trees or lakes, as well as 3D-rendered houses and furniture. It comes with sample maps and pictures and an updated help and user manual. A stand-alone tutorial map is also available for download.

A number of bugs have been fixed since the previous version, and screenshots are available on the company’s Web site.

The pre-release price is $30. The 9.8MB program is available for download from the company at www.beenox.com.
