  • bgfx

    Cross-platform, graphics API agnostic, "Bring Your Own Engine/Framework" style rendering library.

    This new Android game kit is a step in the right direction because now you have less JNI/NDK stuff to deal with, BUT it locks you into the Google ecosystem even more. I would not recommend. Most PC game ported to mobile/other platform use SDL2 to manage the audio/input/file access cross platform. And then use something like bgfx or angle for the rendering back end.

  • angle

    A conformant OpenGL ES implementation for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.
