Hi, fifengine FIFE is a free, open-source cross-platform game engine. It features hardware-accelerated 2D graphics, integrated GUI, audio support, lighting, map editor supporting top-down and isometric maps, pathfinding, virtual filesystem and more!
Games utilizing FIFE are programmed through Python scripting layer on top of the base C++ API. Games can be also programmed using the C++ layer directly. fifechan: Fifechan is a lightweight cross platform GUI library written in C++ specifically designed for games. It has a small yet powerful built in set of extendable GUI Widgets allowing users to create virtually unlimited types of widgets. Fifechan supports rendering in SDL, OpenGL, or Allegro out of the box or it can be adapted to use any rendering engine the user requires. Events are pushed to Fifechan which allows users to use any input library they wish or they could use the built in input handling through either SDL input or Allegro input. The primary goal for Fifechan is to keep it extendable, lightweight and still be powerful enough to use in all types of games out of the box. These are dependencies of unknown-horizons (coming soon to a ports@ near you). ok? -- Anthony J. Bentley
