Can you make 2D games with OpenGL?

OpenGL is quite appropriate for 2D games. Although it is generally used for 3D, the same functionality can be used for 2D games. That is to say, anything you can do with 3D OpenGL will be applicable with “2D” OpenGL.

Should I use OpenGL or a game engine?

If you are serious about learning 3D Graphics you should learn OpenGL, but if you are serious about releasing a game without all of the expert knowledge you should go for one of the engines. After all Unity & Unreal both use OpenGL (or also DirectX when applicable) as their rendering pipeline.

Does GTA use OpenGL?

Now obviously GTA 5 uses deferred rendering, which isn’t entirely possible for us so far because we support older OpenGL. It doesn’t change much, except it makes it much easier to support many lights, something which could be interesting.

Unity has the ability to use DirectX 11 and OpenGL Core graphics APIs, with all the features that you expect from them: compute shaders, tessellation shaders, shader model 5.0 and so on.

Should I learn OpenGL or DirectX or Vulkan?

I recommend starting with OpenGL, because it’s easier to learn. The principles are the same, so a lot of what you learn using OpenGL is transferable. Once you know what you’re doing, then you’re in a good position to handle the extra complexities that Vulkan brings.

How to install OpenGL on Linux and Windows?

  • Is OpenGL licensed under GPL?

    The game is only licensed under the GPL if you make the decision to license it under the GPL. It is ALWAYS your choice. If you use open source libraries, then they will usually be licensed under the LGPL or similar. You can still license your game any way you want.
