    This isn't actually a working alternative, but there is a 3d modelling and game creation software called blender. It's fully open source, written in python, for mac linux and windows. http://www.blender.org/. Perhaps this could be tweaked to work on the ipod/iphone? Could someone look into it? This is an incredibly easy way to create 3d games!!!

    Check out there website, see what you think and if it is at all possible then this could revolutiomnize iphone toolchain development!

    Considering Blender is BUILT on OpenGL...
    And I highly doubt the iPhone could handle Blender.

    Er, correct my if I am wrong. But isn't Blender for making models to put in things like games (I know about rendering scenes aswell).
    Dunno how this could replace Open GL.

    Exactly!
    This isn't the same thing so it won't replace it.

    No, sorry.

    It would be like porting Maya. It might be possible, but it wouldnt be replacing anything.
