trivial-gamekit

Library for getting into gamedev with Common Lisp! Very simple interface to graphics, audio and input.

Requirements

  • OpenGL 2.1 or 3.3+
  • 64-bit (x86_64) Windows, GNU/Linux or macOS
  • x86_64 SBCL or CCL

Installation and loading

By default, trivial-gamekit works in OpenGL 3.3 mode. To enable OpenGL 2.1 you need to

(pushnew :bodge-gl2 *features*)
;; add cl-bodge distribution into quicklisp
(ql-dist:install-dist "http://bodge.borodust.org/dist/org.borodust.bodge.txt")

;; load the gamekit
(ql:quickload :trivial-gamekit)

Example

Copy-paste these into your Common Lisp REPL after loading trivial-gamekit:

(gamekit:defgame example () ())

(defmethod gamekit:draw ((this example))
  (gamekit:draw-text "Hello, Gamedev!" (gamekit:vec2 240.0 240.0)))

(gamekit:start 'example)
