Java The Lightweight Java Game Library provides a simple API to OpenGL, OpenAL, OpenCL and Game Controllers enabling the production of state of the art games for Windows, Linux and Mac. Version 2.9.0 contains a complete rewrite of the mac backend, support for FreeBSD, new OpenGL/OpenCL extension and bug fixes. The library is used by many high profile games such as Minecraft, Spiral Knights, Revenge of the Titans, Project Zomboid, Starsector, JMonkeyEngine, etc.

Probably going to get bashed for this


Yes, you will...

If people are wanting to write cross platform games, Mono Game is probably a better option.


... because you just dropped this without any hint as to why Mono would be better. I, for my part, would not like to see Mono on my machine -- although I must admit, Java has lost most of its appeal now that it's fallen into Oracle's clutches.

Either way, I think the argument is moot anyway, as Unity runs on all three platforms.
