    I've previously used ggez for simple pet projects, and have found it to be fairly simple for what you're describing

  • bevy

    Try bevy. I enjoy using it for a simple 2D rendering :)

  • kiss3d

    Keep it simple, stupid 3d graphics engine for Rust.

    Something like Kiss3D might be more favorable for you. I personally don't have a lot of experience with it, but it's simple to use, and gets the job done without extra work.

  • gdnative

    Rust bindings for Godot 3

    If you desire to use Godot, as having the editor and support, while wanting to use Rust for the logic, might wanna look into Godot Rust.

    Check Notan, I think it fits everything that you need, 2d API, egui integrated, and input support.
