  • raylib

    A simple and easy-to-use library to enjoy videogames programming

  • Raylib is a great library for graphics. You can also use extra libraries such as Raymath and Raudio to fit the needs of your game.

  • OpenTK

    The Open Toolkit library is a fast, low-level C# wrapper for OpenGL, OpenAL & OpenCL. It also includes windowing, mouse, keyboard and joystick input and a robust and fast math library, giving you everything you need to write your own renderer or game engine. OpenTK can be used standalone or inside a GUI on Windows, Linux, Mac.

  • i'd go for OpenTK so you don't have to learn c++ in addition. also one of the most important things is understanding how to communicate with the GPU and for that https://learnopengl.com/ is a great resource. (also creating a 3d engine is not really that much harder than a 2d engine in my opinion)
