Icarus Scene Engine is a cross-platform, CLS-compliant 3D framework, integrating open source APIs into a cohesive all-open-source, all .NET solution. For Windows, MacOSX, Linux, Web, iOS, Android.

Uses OpenTK, OpenGL, OpenAL, Mono/.NET, FFMpeg and FreeType.

Binaries built with ISE run without recompilation across Windows, Linux and Mac OSX, with only Mono/.NET being an installation requirement.

Now includes blank example project solution for iOS, Win, Mac, Linux builds, neater folder structure, numerous bug fixes and improvements over 3.0. Please read the included "3.1 Changes from 3.0.pdf" for a list of all the major changes, tweaks, fixes and improvements.

NOTE: Icarus Scene Engine 3.1 has a number of minor breaking changes from 3.0, around renames of classes, expect about ~30 mins to fully update existing projects
