What is the Nu Game Engine?

"The Nu Game Engine is the world's first practical functional game engine (functional in the functional programming sense). It offers a declarative Elm-style reactive programming API, as well as an imperative and ECS programming APIs for scalability. After finally reaching v1.3.0.4, the implementation has matured enough to prove both the efficacy and viability of functional programming in games in terms of performance, programmability, and reliability."

This repository hosts several projects, including -

  • the Nu Game Engine, a cross-platform F# 2D game engine built in the functional style. Uses SDL2 and Farseer Physics.
  • the sample game BlazeVector.
  • the Chrono Trigger-like game, OmniBlade that is now in production.

Here is some media on the Nu Game Engine -
