The Freescape engine was a revolutionary graphics engine developed by Incentive Software in the mid 1980s. It was designed to create immersive 3D environments and was used in several notable video games of that era.

The Freescape engine was groundbreaking because it allowed players to explore three-dimensional environments in a real-time first-person perspective, which was a significant leap forward in gaming at the time. The engine utilized wireframe graphics, creating a sense of depth and immersion in the game worlds it generated.

The Freescape engine had a significant impact on the gaming industry and influenced the development of future 3D engines and games. Its pioneering approach to real-time 3D graphics and first-person gameplay set the stage for the evolution of the genre.
