"Castle Game Engine" ( http://castle-engine.sourceforge.net/ )
is an open-source 3D and 2D engine for games and other applications.
We have many graphic features (shaders, shadows, screen effects...)
and support many 3D formats (most notably VRML/X3D). We have a flexible
manager of 3D objects, including ready creatures with AI.
for a list of features and documentation for developers.

Use xxx_compile.sh scripts to compile particular examples using FPC.
Use "make examples" in this directory to simply compile all examples.
If you use Lazarus (http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/),
you'll be interested in installing in Lazarus
packages/castle_base.lpk and packages/castle_components.lpk
(see packages/README.txt for more info).
Then you can compile all the examples by opening their .lpi files
and running them as usual from Lazarus.
The engine is available on the terms of LGPL >= 2 license
with static linking exception. This is the same license
as used by FPC RTL and Lazarus LCL.
See COPYING.txt for details.
