The gameplay project is an open-source, cross-platform C++ game development framework/engine maing it easy to write games for mobile and desktop.
Written completely in C++ and well documented using doxygen. Platform-Game abstraction layer separating all operating system code from game engine code.
Full vector math library with classes for Vector2/3/4, Matrix, Quaternion, Ray, Plane. Also Frustum and BoundingBox/BoundingSphere classes for object culling.
Game developer guide, samples and tutorials.
Support for bump-mapping.
Support for light maps.
Multi-texturing, Bump mapping and Light mapping.
Supports DXT, PVTC, ATC, ETC1.
OpenGL 3.2+ (for Desktop) and OpenGL ES 2.0 (for Mobile) based rendering system with classes for RenderState, FrameBuffer, Mesh, Material, Effect, Pass and Techniques.
Shader-based material system with built-in common shader library.
Supports both FBX and COLLADA formats.
Scene-graph components such as Scene, Node, Light, Camera and Model.
Declarative scene binding.
Extensible animation system with classes for Animation, AnimationClip and Curve with built-in AnimationTarget’s on Transform and MaterialParameter’s classes.

Simply the Best
Finally an excellent framework that allows us to realize our ideas, simple and robust, excellent design allows us to create applications by focusing on what and when rather than how.You can manipulate complex concepts and behavior easily.
All the layers necessary for the creation of a game are present and evolves
I must add that the support is excellent and the gameplay Framework is impressive.the roadmap is aswell exiting,I 'm addicted
The missing open multi-platform 3D engine ...
I've been looking at multi-platform 3D engines for a while and this one is very promising! Coming from a desktop and iOS development background, I can't think of another framework that is at the same time as light-weight, freely available and well engineered.
They are actively working on the samples and documentation as well which are great resources to get started. I'm excited for more to come! I'd also recommend it to people who want to have an out-of-the-box framework to get started without having to worry about building their own games engine or spending a lot of money on a commercial solution.
The fact that it is written in C++ is ideal for game developers with existing C++ code and integration with libraries like boost, Lua, Bullet, etc. is simple.
Keep up the good work!
