Game engine “Bacon 2D” announced

Canonical developer Kevin Van Dine has introduced an Ubuntu Touch compatible game engine. Touch is another flavour of Ubuntu Operating System which focus on mobile devices such as smart-phones and tables.

Van Dine announced the engine, named “Bacon2D” at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, according Phoronix. The engine is written in QML and makes use of the Box2D-Simulation-Engine.

Bacon2D helps game developers to include advanced rendering graphics and  provides a standard container, which developers can exploit to create games.  The engine also comes with an editor to create games more easily.

According Van Dine

Bacon2D is especially suitable for making games for Ubuntu Touch, a version of the operating system that is aimed at mobile devices.

Canonical released the first stable release of this version late last year with a SDK.
