How can I create a 3D board game like checkers or chess that can run on Android and iOS (just for newer versions)?
Actually, I only need to create a 3D board since it needs to be integrated in an existing 2D game application. The app should allow for 2D board (existing) and 3D board (to be created).
The best way I guess would be to use an existing cross-platform library/framework, but what I was able to find was mostly game engines that are too much for what I need I think.
Basically I think I mostly need a 3D renderer.
Another option I think would be to just use OpenGL ES by myself to do it, but I never done graphics programming, so it might be too much for me. But if you think that for just a board game it will not be too complex, than I don't mind spending some time learning OpenGL ES first.
What do you think?
