DirectX12GameEngine is a game engine completely written in C# utilizing the Direct3D 12 API for rendering graphics. It supports UWP either rendered directly to the
CoreWindow or embedded in XAML with a
SwapChainPanel. It also supports Win32 with WinForms. Some stand-out features are a shader generator that generates HLSL shaders out of .NET code, holographic rendering for HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality and an editor made with UWP XAML.
