DiligentEngine - Master repository for Diligent Engine project

  •    C++

Diligent Engine is a lightweight cross-platform abstraction layer between the application and the platform-specific graphics API designed to take advantages of next-generation APIs such as Direct3D12 and Vulkan, while providing support for older platforms via Direct3D11, OpenGL and OpenGLES. Diligent Engine exposes common front-end for all supported platforms and provides interoperability with underlying native API. Shader source code converter allows HLSL shaders to be used on all supported platforms and rendering backends. The engine is intended to be used as a graphics subsystem in a game engine or any other 3D application, and supports integration with Unity. Diligent Engine is distributed under Apache 2.0 license and is free to use. Alternatively, you can get master repository fisrt, and then individually clone all submodules into the engine's root folder.

LambdaHack - Haskell game engine library for roguelike dungeon crawlers; try out the browser version at

  •    Haskell

As an example of the engine's capabilities, here is a showcase of shooting down explosive projectiles. A couple were shot down close enough to enemies to harm them. Others exploded closer to our party members and took out of the air the projectiles that would otherwise harm them. This was a semi-automatic stealthy speedrun of the escape scenario of the sample game that comes with the engine. Small fixed font. The enemy gang has a huge numerical and equipment superiority. Our team loots the area on auto-pilot until the first foe is spotted. Then they scout out enemy positions. Then hero 1 draws enemies and unfortunately enemy fire as well, which is when he valiantly shoots down explosives to avoid the worst damage. Then heroine 2 sneaks behind enemy lines to reach the remaining treasure. That accomplished, the captain signals retreat and leaves for the next area (the zoo).

mud - c++ toolkit for rapid development of live graphical apps and games

  •    C++

mud is an all-purpose c++ app prototyping library, focused towards live graphical apps and games. mud contains all the essential building blocks to develop lean c++ apps from scratch, providing reflection and low level generic algorithms, an immediate ui paradigm, and an immediate minimalistic and flexible graphics renderer. mud aims to provide the quickest idioms to build functional and lightweight c++ graphical applications. It tackles the problem of the code you don't want to write, and should not have to write when prototyping an app. One core principle in mud is : don't repeat yourself: we take this aim very seriously and we believe it's a principle that is way too often disregarded.

librg - 🚀 Build simple and fast cross-platform multiplayer

  •    C

Many people think that implementing networking solution for your game project is the most complicated and time consuming task. We believe many people are afraid to even try, which results in the fact, that you almost never see small games made by indie developers having any type of networking involved. Thus we hope that with this library, which is just a small step in the direction, we might help anyone and everyone who wants to add a multi-player capabilities inside one's game.
