The Lightweight Java Game Library (LWJGL) is a solution aimed directly at professional and amateur Java programmers alike to enable commercial quality games to be written in Java. LWJGL provides developers access to high performance crossplatform libraries such as OpenGL and OpenAL (Open Audio Library) allowing for state of the art 3D games and 3D sound. Additionally LWJGL provides access to controllers such as gamepads, steering wheel and joysticks. All in a simple and straightforward API.

John Carmack CTO at Oculus 3


At next week's Game Developer Conference, Oculus will be showcasing the work it has put into bringing Minecraft's Android version to the Gear VR headset. The game will be shown at an invitation-only event, and will be attended by Oculus CTO John Carmack, who made significant contributions to bringing Minecraft to Gear VR.


At his keynote speech during Oculus Connect 2 last September, Carmack said:

"Really for the last year and a half, before Gear VR even existed, Minecraft was something that I was desperate to get into virtual reality because I thought it would be critically important."

Though we've seen glimpses of Minecraft running on the Oculus Rift, that was with Minecraft's Windows 10 Edition. No doubt the additional work needed to make Minecraft run well on mobile, Android VR - despite the Gear VR also using Oculus hardware - is significant. Next week, we'll finally get to see the results of that effort.

Urr, how have you people missed off the would-be most popular game in the list? It would get you so much more popularity.
MINECRAFT PEOPLE. IT WAS MADE WITH THIS.
I really thought it would be here.
Good idea? Indeed it is. So basically you missed the most popular indie game ever. -_-
That aside, this engine is FABULOUS. I'll stop flaming or what not here, because this is actually really good. Hope this gets more popular. :D
