Can C2 be seen as an engine?

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

I think it is only semantics, but I am curious in comparing. It helps me, for instance, to get more knowledge about C2.

Can C2 be seen as a game engine, just like some games are "powered by Unreal Technology" (using the Unreal engine)?

It's highly semantic, but I've always considered the games themselves to be engines, and C2 to be a framework.

C2 is described as an engine almost everywhere though.

Technically it could be both, but since everything is editor centric ... I think it should be called an that.

A game engine is a software framework designed for the creation and development of video games... The core functionality typically provided by a game engine includes a rendering engine (“renderer”) for 2D or 3D graphics, a physics engine or collision detection (and collision response), sound, scripting, animation, artificial intelligence, networking, streaming, memory management, threading, localization support, and a scene graph. The process of game development is often economized, in large part, by reusing/adapting the same game engine to create different games,[1] or to make it easier to "port" games to multiple platforms.


If you trust wikipedia definitions ;)
