# Our Story
The OPengine was originally started as an in-house only engine to create games within OPifex Entertainment. As it grew and became further and further robust we began getting interest from other parties wanting to use it. After some internal discussion we decided we were going to release it.
Just releasing the engine was going to be a project itself. A lot of effort has gone into making the engine more accessible to newcomers but it still has a long way to go. It's in it's infancy yet, so new programmers won't find the OPengine quite as accessible.
When we started the OPengine we had no intention of releasing it, we didn't want to be in the engine making industry. We created the engine to create the games that we wanted to make. That's what the purpose of the engine was and still is. With the help of others though, it can become more.
OPifex Entertainment is a partnership based out of Michigan, USA. We are a small team of dedicated game developers who strive to create games that are worth talking about. We have fresh ideas, with hopes to pierce the standard gaming mentality and deliver products that truly give our players a unique experience. We dubbed ourselves OPifex not only because of our creative, unique game design, but also our exploration into new technologies and techniques that really make our games shine. At the end of the day, it's not about fame or fortune, it's about our creative energy being channeled into one package that leaves one saying "Damn, this is fun!"
