Nice to meet you. I am japanese's game developer. And, my hobby is game development. Now, I am looking for game engine or liblary, For example, graphics engines, sound liblary, base liblary, interfece liblary without windows api…. It is good to use game engine is free software or rate is low. But, I can't read English so much. I must put in plenty of time to find in a lot of information. Could you recommend me about game engine or liblary? I would be grateful if you recommend good game engine or nice liblary.

Hi and welcome to the site.

You might wish to check out something like Allegro or ClanLib to help you start out. Which languages are you interested in using? Allegro/Clanlib are coded in C (I believe), so they're usable in C/C++.

If you're going to take the C# route (it's an excellent language by the way), I'd recommend checking out SDL.NET. It's an object oriented CLI library to allow development of SDL applications through C#. It effectively wraps SDL_image, SDL_gfx, SDL_ttf and SDL_mixer in an object oriented fashion.

If you're just starting out with programming however, I recommend staying away from graphics programming and just playing around with the console. Make a simple Tic Tac Toe game where you play against a friend. Once you have some experience with the language of your choice (C++, C#, etc), then move onto some graphic programming.

DevMaster.Net has a 3D engines database which should help you find an engine most suited to your personal needs.

There are several hundred engines available and each has different strengths and weaknesses, so it will depend on your own priorities which is most suitable for you.

The advanced search should help narrow it down.
