In Detail
The Irrlicht Engine is a cross-platform high-performance real-time 3D engine written in C++. It features a powerful high-level API for creating complete 3D and 2D applications such as games or scientific visualizations.
Irrlicht 1.7.1 Realtime 3D Engine Beginner's Guide will teach you to master all that is required to create 2D and 3D applications using Irrlicht, beginning right from installation and proceeding step-by-step to deployment.
Beginning with installation, this book guides you through creating a basic template application, followed by meshes, overlays, and UI. You will then scan through data types, nodes, scenes, camera, lights, and particle systems. Finally, you will learn about some advanced concepts such as handling data, files, and shaders, followed by the last stage - deployment.
This book is a step-by-step guide to Irrlicht that starts at an easy level for beginners and then gradually works to more advanced topics through clear code examples and a number of demos, which illustrate theoretical concepts.

What you will learn from this book

•Set up Irrlicht on different platforms

•Create your very first empty application using different platforms and IDEs

•Apply textures to meshes, load, and access them

•Add and manipulate images

•Change the graphical layout of the user interface

•Learn about data types to access objects in a 3D space and facilitate the workflow

•Manipulate and manage scenes

•Set up a custom node and animate it using Node Animator

•Learn how to move the camera

•Add prefabricated and custom cameras

•Add, manage, and manipulate lights

•Create eye-candy effects with particle systems

•Handle data and files with Irrlicht

•Implement shaders for complex effects

•Deploy your application

A beginner's guide with plenty of screenshots and explained code.

Try Allegro. It's free, cross-platform and covers all the stuff you need to program games.


Ogre is the best Graphic Engine available for free. Ogre doesn't cover all field a game engine should do. Ogre doesn't handle physics, networking, AI, audio...

If you want to collect a good set of free libraries I suggest you to use

  • OGRE for graphics
  • Bullets (or ODE) for physics
  • Raknet for Networking and MatchMaking
  • 'something else' for audio and AI

If you need something powerfull (but expensive) I suggest you C4 Engine (350$) or Torque (150$).

SFML is an excellent library to build a game engine over if you're going 2D. A clearly better alternative than SDL.

Ogre and other libraries have already been cited but if you're going 3D it certainly is the best free 3D engine around, as it is the most flexible.

Ogre3d and Irrlicht are both popular 3D game engines for C++.

SDL is also quite popular and there is a ton of information about it floating around the web, a lot of it geared specifically towards making games. This tutorial looks particularly good.

Like previously said Ogre3d and Irrlicht are probably your best options in regards to 'free'. If you also want 'easy to learn' it boils down to Irrlicht.

Very clean interface and great tutorials.

Edit: Actually you should be a little bit more specific. Do you want 2d or 3d graphics? Do you need sound, physics and all that or just graphics? Which platforms do you want to target?

Also, are you sure it has to be C++? While C++ is pretty much mandatory for professional game engines, for learning purposes C# with XNA or some scripting language is way better.

Check this out from 2D Boy, the makers of World of Goo:Rapid Prototyping Framework

It's only for prototyping, but you can still learn from it.

If you want C++ and your just starting out I'd go with Irrlicht (its free, and its code although not blazing fast like Ogre, its very well structured and a good example of what a C++ should look like). But if you're ready for some hardcore work Ogre would be better (although its source can be much more enigmatic and hard for a new comer).

Ogre3D is not a game engine. Some replies here imply that it is a game engine. It is a graphics engine.

It is important to understand it.


My favourites are Irrlicht and Ogre. Both are very powerful, but (if you are familiar with C++) are fairly easy to get started with thanks to the documentation and examples. You can find a step by step tutorial that shows you how to get started with Irrlicht here, and with Ogre here.

Torque -- it isn't free, but it's great value at only $150.

@OJIrrlicht is a full game engine, it does more than rendering. Such as sound ,network, collision, animation, etc...

It even has an editor for creating game areas.

You can try HEG or Cocos2d-X.They are both open source 2D game engines for C++ with a lot of examples.HEG is free and easy to learn.Cocos2d-X is the cross-platform version of cocos2d-iphone.
