About

Proton SDK (aka p+) is a component based C++ framework that is optimized for GL/GLES based mobile cross-platform game development.

It's designed for advanced C++ programmers, if you're new to C++ or programming, this probably isn't the SDK for you!

Warning: Currently, things are designed around the presumption that you want to work from Visual C++ on Windows as your “main” development platform. Most scripts are .bat files. There is no deal-breaking reason why you can't use another platform as your “main” platform, but you'll have to do more work to get it going. If you do that, you should tell email Seth and contribute any tips/scripts/changes you've made.

  • Unless there is a very good reason we'd like all changes to be 100% backwards compatible with existing. No breaking changes.
  • All submitted code/media must be fully compatible with the Proton license or be a separate library that has a compatible license that allows it to be included (like libpng for example)
