 Maybe theres a way to use unity 3d to translate to bge because i have a networked fps multiplayer/ zombie survival you all may use for intel. Im not sure 100% but unity translates c# /java /py/boo script or w.e else and pc/mac/flash browser/iphone/android.. sorry i am not so informed but ithere is such a big community of open source scripts and starter kits. Just an idea hope it helps

I am interested, and would like to help if possible.

A fresh set of BGE demos would be lovely. With or without Intel's support.
