Simulant is a cross-platform general-purpose game engine written in C++.

It is designed with portability in mind, using minimal dependencies and targetting C++11 (rather than more modern versions of the language).

The aim of Simulant is to create an easy-to-use game engine to allow building homebrew for older games consoles, as well as creating a great developer-experience on modern platforms.
