G3N - Go 3D Game Engine

G3N (pronounced "gen") is an OpenGL 3D Game Engine written in Go. It can be used to write cross-platform Go applications that show rich and dynamic 3D representations - not just games. A basic integrated GUI framework is provided, and 3D spatial audio is supported through OpenAL.

To see G3N in action try the G3N demo or the Gokoban award winning game.

Go 1.8+ is required. The engine also requires the system to have an OpenGL driver and a GCC-compatible C compiler.

On Unix-based systems the engine depends on some C libraries that can be installed using the appropriate distribution package manager. See below for OS specific requirements.


$ sudo apt-get install xorg-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libopenal1 libopenal-dev libvorbis0a libvorbis-dev libvorbisfile3


$ sudo dnf -y install xorg-x11-proto-devel mesa-libGL mesa-libGL-devel openal-soft openal-soft-devel libvorbis libvorbis-devel glfw-devel libXi-devel

CentOS 7

Enable the EPEL repository:

$ sudo yum -y install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

Then install the same packages as for Fedora - remember to use yum instead of dnf for the package installation command.


We tested the Windows build using the mingw-w64 toolchain (you can download this file in particular).

The necessary audio DLLs are supplied and need to be added to your PATH. If you would like to build the DLLs yourself you can find the libraries' source code and build instructions here.


Install the development files of OpenAL and Vorbis using Homebrew:

brew install libvorbis openal-soft


The following set of commands will download and install the engine along with all its Go dependencies:

git clone https://github.com/g3n/engine g3n-engine
cd g3n-engine
go install ./...

Hello G3N

The code below is a basic "hello world" application (hellog3n) that shows a blue torus and a button that when clicked makes the torus red:

package main

import (

func main() {

	// Create application and scene
	a := app.App()
	scene := core.NewNode()

	// Set the scene to be managed by the gui manager

	// Create perspective camera
	cam := camera.New(1)
	cam.SetPosition(0, 0, 3)

	// Set up orbit control for the camera

	// Set up callback to update viewport and camera aspect ratio when the window is resized
	onResize := func(evname string, ev interface{}) {
		// Get framebuffer size and update viewport accordingly
		width, height := a.GetSize()
		a.Gls().Viewport(0, 0, int32(width), int32(height))
		// Update the camera's aspect ratio
		cam.SetAspect(float32(width) / float32(height))
	a.Subscribe(window.OnWindowSize, onResize)
	onResize("", nil)

	// Create a blue torus and add it to the scene
	geom := geometry.NewTorus(1, .4, 12, 32, math32.Pi*2)
	mat := material.NewStandard(math32.NewColor("DarkBlue"))
	mesh := graphic.NewMesh(geom, mat)

	// Create and add a button to the scene
	btn := gui.NewButton("Make Red")
	btn.SetPosition(100, 40)
	btn.SetSize(40, 40)
	btn.Subscribe(gui.OnClick, func(name string, ev interface{}) {

	// Create and add lights to the scene
	scene.Add(light.NewAmbient(&math32.Color{1.0, 1.0, 1.0}, 0.8))
	pointLight := light.NewPoint(&math32.Color{1, 1, 1}, 5.0)
	pointLight.SetPosition(1, 0, 2)

	// Create and add an axis helper to the scene

	// Set background color to gray
	a.Gls().ClearColor(0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1.0)

	// Run the application
	a.Run(func(renderer *renderer.Renderer, deltaTime time.Duration) {
		renderer.Render(scene, cam)

  • Should loader.Decode() support .obj files without a corresponding material?

    Should loader.Decode() support .obj files without a corresponding material?

    Asking because although the example files (eg gopher.obj, gopher.mtl) work fine, I have several .obj files without materials (generated by CAD programs).

    Was kind of thinking to import the obj files using loader.Decode(), then manually create + apply a material to each imported one.

    At the moment, loader.Decode() treats a missing material file as an error. Am kind of thinking it might be useful to allow it to proceed instead, and pass (say) nil to loader.DecodeReader() which would skip attempting to parse the missing material too.

    Can make a PR, which shouldn't suck too hard code wise. :wink:

    Thoughts? :smile:

  • Can't play Ogg Vorbis file

    Can't play Ogg Vorbis file


    I have an Ogg Vorbis audio file:

    % file test.ogg
    test.ogg: Ogg data, Vorbis audio, stereo, 48000 Hz, ~160000 bps, created by: Xiph.Org libVorbis I

    It plays fine with mpv:

    % mpv test.ogg 
    Playing: test.ogg
     (+) Audio --aid=1 (vorbis 2ch 48000Hz)
    File tags:
     Artist: Vårsol
    AO: [pulse] 48000Hz stereo 2ch float
    A: 00:00:01 / 00:05:24 (0%)
    Exiting... (Quit)

    However, when playing the file with these lines of code, I get a panic:

    	// Load Ogg Vorbis library
    	err = vorbis.Load()
    	if err != nil {
    	// Load audio
    	player, err := audio.NewPlayer("test.ogg")
    	if err != nil {
    	// Play audio
    	err = player.Play()
    	if err != nil {

    This is the output

    Xiph.Org libVorbis 1.3.5
    panic: Unsuported file type

    This is on 64-bit Arch Linux with Go 1.8 and libvorbis 1.3.5 (comes with libvorbisfile: /usr/lib/libvorbisfile.so.3.3.7).

  • The program does not render examples

    The program does not render examples

    I use windows 64. Downloaded the engine from the gitnab and try to run the examples, such as "HelloG3n" or "gopher3d". But only new window appears and shows nothing. Nothing exept the background color. After I close the window programm ends with exit-code:0.

    I do not understand what's the matter! Please,I need your help!

    additionaly, the first time it got error, that it don't may use type int as argument of glfw.CreateStandartCursor in "glfw.go". This fragment introduced below: // Preallocate standard cursors w.arrowCursor = glfw.CreateStandardCursor(int(glfw.ArrowCursor)) w.ibeamCursor = glfw.CreateStandardCursor(int(glfw.IBeamCursor)) w.crosshairCursor = glfw.CreateStandardCursor(int(glfw.CrosshairCursor)) w.handCursor = glfw.CreateStandardCursor(int(glfw.HandCursor)) w.hresizeCursor = glfw.CreateStandardCursor(int(glfw.HResizeCursor)) w.vresizeCursor = glfw.CreateStandardCursor(int(glfw.VResizeCursor)) After this I remove all int from showed strings. But I don't think that it's reason...

  • node.SetVisible() state ignored

    node.SetVisible() state ignored

    Just noticed something that seems weird.

    If a scene has several nodes (eg 3 boxes), then the node.SetVisible() call doesn't work as expected when all of the nodes have their visibility turned off.

    If only some of the nodes in the scene have their visibility turned off, then things work as expected. Those nodes disappear visually, and only the remaining nodes can be seen.

    However, when all nodes have their visibility turned off... none of them disappear. eg it's as if the several calls to node.SetVisible() are being ignored.

    Is this expected behaviour?

    Only asking because I'm noticing this while mucking around with engine/gui and buttons. The action of one is set to toggle visibility of various elements, and I noticed this seeming-edge-case. If this is behaviour as intended, then no worries. It's just a test button anyway. :smile:

  • Audio dependency names for CentOS 7

    Audio dependency names for CentOS 7

    Just read the audio dependencies for CentOS in the README.md, so decided to investigate quickly:

    For CentOS/Fedora-like Linux distributions, install libopenal1 and libvorbisfile3 (to be verified)

    On my CentOS 7 x64 desktop, the needed package for OpenAL seems to be called "openal-soft" (available in the standard EPEL repo) instead of "libopenal1". There is a matching "openal-soft-devel" package too, but it doesn't seem to be needed when testing just now.

    For testing, I compiled g3nplay and ran it with the demo .ogg and .wav files.

    • Without openal-soft installed, an error message Error trying to load OpenAL library is displayed.
    • With just openal-soft installed (without the -devel package too) the .wav files (only) play back fine.
    • Adding the openal-soft-devel didn't seem to change anything. The .wav files played back fine again.

    For the .ogg demo files though, nothing seemed to work. Both the libvorbis and libogg packages were already installed on my desktop, but the .ogg files refused to play. As in, the g3nplay application proceeded as if there were... but no sound of any sort. Add the libogg-devel and libvorbis-devel packages then recompiling g3nplay didn't change anything.

    So... for at least the OpenAL stuff the package name is pretty clear. Not real sure about the libvorbis bits though. :wink:

  • Create button_destructive.go

    Create button_destructive.go

    I don't know how to modify two files in a single PR so I'm having to submit this in parts so that g3n will continue to build successfully after each merge. It will be a series of 5 pull requests that you can merge in order and it should compile after each PR. This is the first in the series.

    This series of PRs introduces a new type, ButtonDestructive, which is extremely similar to Button (and uses it internally), but requires two clicks to activate. After the first click, the style and optionally the label text change to indicate that another click is necessary. If the mouse cursor leaves the widget then it is reset. If a second click happens then the associated (usually destructive, hence the name) subscribed action is called.

  • Question: making a HUD with bitmap

    Question: making a HUD with bitmap

    Hello, I was playing with the G3n, and looking for a way to implement HUD, or bitmap overlay of some sort - like in almost any first-person shooter game (Doom-like).

    I could use gui.NewImage() and add it to scene at specified position, but apparently scaling/stretching is not possible.

    Any better ideas?

    I'm trying to invert a sprite by setting its scale to negative (x axis) and then simply removing and adding it to the scene again, but the sprite never gets flipped. Is there any recommended way of doing that? This is what I'm currently trying:

  • Add gls framebuffer methods from #190

    Add gls framebuffer methods from #190

    I decided to revert the changes to material/texture in #190 since I'll need the framebuffers part of that commit at some point.

    The method to access material textures discussed in #190 is implemented in #224, which was the purpose of the partial revert in this set.

  • Implement Blinn-Phong model and material

    Implement Blinn-Phong model and material

    It's very similar to the Phong model so we only need to pass a parameter to the phong_model shader.

    Blinn-Phong is quite well described here. I'll leave it up to you whether you want this upstream. Let me know if you want any changes.

    I also have an example application with two materials to show the difference but it'll need tidying for merge, and of course won't work without this commit.

    In #190 it was requested to make a public method to access the material texture property instead of making the property public. This PR adds the TexName() method from #190 and a Texture() method on materials.

  • Unclear how to properly dispose of nodes

    Unclear how to properly dispose of nodes

    Not really an issue, but rather a question.

    I'm disposing of nodes with scene.remove and then nulling the slice that contained references to the nodes, like so:

    func (a *animator) clearNodeGroup(nodes []*core.Node) []*core.Node {
    	for _, node := range nodes {
    	nodes = nil
    	return nodes

    However, I seem to be running into memory issues over time, so I'm not sure if I need to do something else to dispose of the nodes. Haven't been able to figure out anything else that would cause the slowdowns and memory problems. If the scene is on pause, not insterting / removing any nodes, it can run for ages.
