Could Golang ever be used in the meat-and-potatoes of video game development?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 9 Jan 2022
I don't see why it can't be used in video game development in fact, there are already a few games made in go like Bear's Restaurant though most of them seem to be 2D games That is also a few game engines/frameworks/library made in go like G3N, Ebiten, pixel and go-gl I have seen a few Youtube Videos where people make games in go like Gaming in Go Making an MMO I think what is Missing is gaming engines with a GUI like unity, unreal and Godot but nothing stopping someone from making one other than the massive time/money investment it takes

3 projects | dev.to | 3 Jan 2022
I have been developing a 2D game engine called Ebiten in my spare time. I have succeeded in porting this to Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch version of "Bear's Restaurant" was released in 2021.
What is a good engine to make 2D games in?
1 project | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 29 Dec 2021
Ebiten might fit your use case, but if your career look is game dev, it may be more coding heavy and less like major game engines than you are looking for. https://ebiten.org/

Transpiling 2d physics engine from C to Go
4 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 8 Dec 2021
Apparently, it was pretty easy! After some small fixes it started working. So, I added ebiten to see how it works in practice. And finally, I created a small wasm demo. It was harder, because of some strange bugs, which I could fix by getting rid of unsafe from transplited code. But it wasn't too much hard (actually - nothing, comparing to writing physics engine from scratch).
