Features

  • [x] C++. C.
  • [x] Fast. Simple.
  • [x] Modern. Readable.
  • [x] Full featured. Extendable.
  • [x] Object-oriented. Data-oriented.
  • [x] Infinite documentation. Browsable sources.
  • [x] Hundred of file formats supported. Unique binary format.
  • [x] Royaltie fee. Free and unlicensed.
  • [x] Other buzzwords. Small. Direct. Embeddable. Fun.

Rationale

  • Minimalistic coding style.
  • Less is more, DOD, ECS, KISS.
  • Heap allocations under control.
  • No installation, no makefiles, fast compilation times.
  • Generic 3D editor, that can be decoupled from the project.
  • Generic asset pipeline, that can be decoupled from the project.
  • JSON workflow: still human-readable, still mergeable.
  • Inspiration from: ands, bitsquid, ccxvii, jo, krig, ocornut, procedural, rjm, rlk, sgorsten, stb, vurtun.

Roadmap ᕕ(ᐛ)ᕗ

  • [x] 00 Project structure, build system and makefiles.
  • [x] 01 Window, rendering contexts and game loop.
  • [ ] 02 File formats, hashing, encryption and compression.
  • [x] 03 Timers, easings and interpolation.
  • [ ] 04 Input bindings, digital+analog buttons, filters, gestures, chords and combos.
  • [x] 05 Linear math, geometry, volumes and collisions.
  • [x] 06 Cameras and frustum culling.
  • [ ] 07 Regions, triggers, trees and spatial partioning.
  • [ ] 08 Data pipeline and asset journaling.
  • [ ] 09 World streaming and level loading.
  • [ ] 10 2D/2.5D/3D/VR renderer and post-effects.
  • [x] 11 Fonts, atlases and text rendering.
  • [x] 12 Debug draw and debug UI.
  • [ ] 13 Procedural content, brushes, voxels, noise and CSG.
  • [ ] 14 Static meshes, decals, skyboxes and skydomes.
  • [ ] 15 Sprites, sheets and spines.
  • [ ] 16 Particles, billboards, emitters, trails and paths.
  • [ ] 17 Skeletal animation, blending, blendspaces, IKs.
  • [ ] 18 LODs, mesh instancing and scenegraphs.
  • [ ] 19 Server/client architecture.
  • [ ] 20 Message pipeline and serialization.

  • [ ] 24 Navpoints, navmesh traversal and pathfinding.
  • [ ] 25 AI, H/FSM, behavior trees and flocking.
  • [ ] 26 Game flow and game UI.
  • [ ] 27 Localization, subtitles and unicode.
  • [ ] 28 2D/3D audio, HRTF, FFT, filtering and sound occlusion.
  • [ ] 29 Dialogue, quests and inventory.

Releases

2019.2 (Monkey3_Icarus), 2019.1 (YOB_Marrow)

Getting started

Execute the make.sh.bat script file to build & run the editor.

Additionally:

  • make (launch editor)
  • make game [platform] (launch game)
  • make make [game] [platform] (make game.exe executable)
  • make cook [game] [platform] (cook all raw game assets)
  • make pack [game] [platform] (pack all cooked game assets into game.pak file)
  • make fuse [game] [platform] (fuse game.pak and game.exe both together)

Disk structure

  • editor/, generic 3d editor and viewer.
  • engine/, portable engine runtime.
  • games/, games and demos.
  • tools/, build tools & generic asset pipeline.

Download

Build

AVA as engine:

  • [x] Compile the amalgamated engine.c source file to get a functional game engine.
  • [x] Compile your game as a dynamic library and place it near the AVA executable.
  • [x] Tip: Rename both executable and dynamic library as desired. Ie, game.exe with game.dll will work.
  • [x] Tip: Place an .ico icon close to the binary if you want to as well.
cl      engine.c                && echo AVA as engine (Windows)
g++     engine.c                && echo AVA as engine (Linux)
clang++ engine.c                && echo AVA as engine (OSX)

AVA as library:

  • [x] Compile your game and link amalgamated engine.c source file with it.
cl      game.c engine.c         && echo AVA as library (Windows)
g++     game.c engine.c         && echo AVA as library (Linux)
clang++ game.c engine.c         && echo AVA as library (OSX)

Redistribution

- game.exe + .ico        (engine player)
- game.dll/.lua/.socket     (game logic) \
- game.rom/.pak        (ro data storage) | game :)
- game.ram/.sql        (rw data storage) /
