The gameplay framework is a cross-platform, C++, 2D/3D game framework that includes a runtime library, tools, and learning content that allows indie developers to write games for mobile and desktop platforms without worrying about platform details.
The project is open-source under the Apache 2.0 license.
The framework offers a well-defined, 2D/3D game framework that's designed to get the most out of today's mobile and desktop platforms. Its purpose is to help you create stunning, world-class, games that harness the power and performance of the platform without being concerned about the platform details. This is accomplished through a set of C++ classes that are built on top of the OS, providing access to the hardware, graphics, and audio libraries (including OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and OpenAL).
These classes allow you to:
Build your game without worrying about platform details
- Drive your game with application initialization, update, and render events.
- Control your game with touch screen, keyboard, accelerometer and gamepad support.
- Manage your game assets with an abstraction layer over the device's file system.
Create game components with ease
- Add visuals with scene, node, camera, lights, model, sprites, materials, animation, physics and AI classes.
- Control and position the game using the viewport, camera, and audio listener.
- Manage fundamental elements such as fonts, colors, and curves.
- Update game data with built-in math classes for vectors, matrices, rays, planes, bounding volumes and their associated operations.
Improve your game and learn
- Supports TrueType fonts and Autodesk FBX interchange scene formats to import and binary encode your 3D game assets into bundles.
- Built-in materials and shaders to enhance your game's rendering.
- Both mobile and desktop platforms are supported for ease of portability and tooling options.
- Documentation, tutorials, and code samples are provided.
