The IGDE is the main work place to create your games with. It provides a single application with various specialised editors and tools to create games using the Drag[en]gine Game Engine. The editor enables real-time preview of the created content but is not written using the game engine. This allows for a number of optimisations but more importantly offers developers a tool that looks & feels like a native OS application while providing all the benefits of using the game engine directly for previewing the game content.
The IGDE brings together a set of specialised editors for putting together game content.

The following editors are available in the IGDE:
At this point, you might also want to refresh your memory on modules since they are closely coupled with the way editors work.
