Intrinsic Is A Promising, Open-Source, Cross-Platform Vulkan Game Engine

Ever hear of the Intrinsic game engine? Neither have we, until The Khronos Group mentioned it this morning as a new game engine focused on Vulkan support that was open-sourced last week.

Intrinsic is an open-source cross-platform graphics and game engine that's designed around Vulkan. Intrinsic is still in the early stages of development but the visuals from it so far appear quite good. The game engine is actually GPLv3 licensed but the developer is also making it available for proprietary purposes through private means.

Check out for more details and screenshots from the engine and IntrinsicEd, its editor. The code is in C++ and hosted on GitHub. Intrinsic has been in development for a few months while just last week it was made public. Hopefully we'll see more good things out of Intrinsic in the future (and ideally some benchmark mode/demo too!).
