    😠⚔️😈 A minimalistic 2D turn-based tactical game in Rust

    i've used both in zemeroth: i migrated it from ggez to macroquad mostly because ggez at that time didn't support android and web targets. but i'd say that the main difference is tech stacks they're using: while ggez extensively reuses the existing rust gamedev ecosystem (winit, wgpu, rodio, etc), mq was written mostly on top of minimalist or its own specialized libraries (see miniquad).

  • femtovg

    Antialiased 2D vector drawing library written in Rust

    I use femtovg It's a simple vector graphics engine having all the important features you probably want from a 2D rendering engine: simple shapes, images, text

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • I created and maintain some template I always when I start new projects. It uses a simplified event loop in an external crate, but you might just copy it into your own project and modify it if it's not flexible enough.

  • macroquad

    Cross-platform game engine in Rust.
