Fiber2D - Cross-platform 2D Game Engine in pure Swift

  •    Swift

This project originated as cocos2d-objc rewrite to Swift. As I stopped commiting to the repo since June, because Obj-C is dead for me. This is still in a very alpha state, but you already can build some games with it, even though it may be unpleasant process as I change API almost every day. The project served as .dylib (.so on Linux/Android) that builds by Swift Package Manager. It requires some project config in order to use it, but you can experiment with the demo provided in the repo. Generally the project should be considered unstable and most of the API is likely to be changed.

ImagineEngine - A project to create a blazingly fast Swift game engine that is a joy to use 🚀

  •    Swift

Welcome to Imagine Engine, an ongoing project that aims to create a fast, high performance Swift 2D game engine for Apple's platforms that is also a joy to use. You are hereby invited to participate in this new community to build a tool with an ambitious but clear goal - to enable you to easily build any game that you can imagine. Imagine Engine uses Core Animation as its rendering backend - just like Apple's UI frameworks like UIKit and AppKit do. By leveraging the power of Core Animation's hardware accelerated 2D rendering capabilities, Imagine Engine is able to push lots of pixels onto the screen at the same time. That means more objects, more effects and less restrictions when designing your games.
