IndieLib: 2d game engine using c++ for rapid game development

5 comments | in | about Gamedev | December 31, 2008

IndieLib is a c++ 2.5d engine for game development and fast game prototyping in a really easy way. Internally it uses Direct3d for hardware acceleration, but doesn’t use DirectDraw or ID3DXSprite, it directly draws textures on polygons. The engine is focused in fast 2d rendering, but also allows you to use 3d models. Check out the main IndieLib features in the FAQ.

    Hello, I’ve seen the video about IndieLib features and I found that it’s great.

    I would like to ask why did you choose to use DirectX instead of OpenGL?
