Blitz3D is a programming language and integrated development enviroment for creating 2D and 3D games. It's based on the BASIC language, making it simple to pick up for new users while still providing advanced features such as DirectX support for graphics. Blitz3D lets developers write code in a straightforward manner and see quick results, which is useful when prototyping or learning game development concepts. The platform has seen decreased use over time with the shift towards more modern engines like Unity or Unreal Engine that focus on cross-platform support and cater to larger developer communities.
