Hi, I am a new game developer and am learning how to make games. Can I combine libraries into one library for call up in code, but the new library is not a standalone app? I want to combine SFML/OpenGL(graphics/audio), and a good physics library(please help). How would I do this?

 

Also, if I can, how would I call it up in my code after I'm done? 

 

My preferred language is C++. I want to target pc(browser included with Emscripten), and move to Android(NativeActivity) and iOS(Objective C++).

 

Any other tips? Help is welcome.

Thanks.

 

EDIT: I don't want to use a game engine because I want the full coding experience, but if you recommend using/making one, please tell me why.

Will it still have a "game engine" interface/be a standalone program?

Game engines aren't necessarily standalone programs like the Unity or Unreal scene editors. Sure, a standalone editor program is a common part of a game engine, but a much more common part is a code library that your standalone game links to (which implements graphics, audio, physics, via SFML/OpenGL/etc...)..
