Write Incredible 3D Games, Applications and Presentations With Ease

DarkBASIC Professional is the most advanced games development package built on the BASIC language currently available. No other package out there makes it as easy to incorporate all of the special features and effects you see in today's games and no other package natively offers the benefits of Microsoft's DirectX 9 technology.

All programs created with DarkBASIC Professional are License and Royalty Free.

Now includes!
DarkMATTER - A collection of fully animated 3D models you can use, royalty-free in your own games. Models range from cars and jet fighters to soldiers, zombies, ammo packs and more. All fully textured and ready to drop into your games.

Riftspace - In this award-winning game you can choose your role in true freeform gameplay spanning over 20 planetary systems, buy better ships, weapons, and even pilots as you manage a team of mercenaries. RiftSpace puts you in command and gives you the freedom to explore, trade, recruit, assign, negotiate, and battle for your success.

Starwraith - You have been enlisted to fly the most powerful starfighter of the future. Built for speed and armed with experimental firepower, the new generation of space combat technology is yours to master as you lead your squadron through the dynamic campaign with two possible endings, engage in dogfight, team-vs-team, and cooperative multiplayer combat, and even create your own scenarios with the built-in mission designer (Please note that Starwraith is only included with DarkBASIC Professional).
