Due to it’s popularity in the professional game industry, I get all kinds of requests for C++ based game engines. That is exactly what this guide is, a collection of game engines that use C++. This is not about game engines that are written using C++, many if not most game engines are at least partially written using C++, instead it covers engines where you (can) primarily use C++ in developing an actual game using the engine. So without further ado, let’s jump into the list of (3D only) game engines that (can) use C++ to develop games.
The game engines, in no particular order:
OGRE *Technically a renderer
G3D Innovation Engine (Learn More)
Tombstone Engine (C4 successor)
The list is not comprehensive but tries to at least get most of the options out there. If I missed something, please let me know in the comments below. For more information on all the engines listed above, be sure to check out the following video. Any engine with a learn more link to the right of it means we have previously covered this engine in video form.
