Hi guys, Does anyone know of any open-source game built with opengl? Much as I like learning on my own, I like to learn by example too, so I want to see some code. Preferably something that's already complete, even if it's just a simple game, and also preferably something that's for win32. Any one got any leads? Thanks! Roy

I think the Quake 1 and 2 engines are open-source, and available on the iD Software website. However, I definitely wouldn't recommend learning from those - they're not designed to be easy to understand, they're designed to be fast. If you want to try making a full game first, it might be better to start with a 2D one. Making it 3D works exactly the same except you use different functions to draw objects.
