Today AppGameKit 2018.10.10 was released with several new commands added to the cross platform game framework.  AppGameKit is an interested game development framework that exists in two tiers, a lower level C API and a higher level easier to use framework built on top of it.  You can learn more about AppGameKit from our earlier Closer Look game engine review.
