Castle Game Engine 6.4 Brings Rigid-Body Physics, Improved Render Pipeline
Castle Game Engine 6.4 continues supporting 2D/3D games from the Linux desktop to Android and iOS devices. The 6.4 engine update brings rigid-body physics support via the Kraft Physics Engine, upgrades to the terrain generation API, improvements to the shader pipeline rendering code, new API additions, and various other improvements.
The shader pipeline work has unified its mobile/GLES and desktop/OpenGL shader handling and for exposing the same feature capabilities on both fronts. The new rendering code is also faster and simpler.
