Cross-Platform Rust Toolkit for Games 🏹

What is Crossbow?

A goal of the crossbow project is to provide a complete infrastructure for cross-platform game development in rust. In addition, the project simplifies the creation and packaging of crates for Android, iOS, and other platforms. We want to make most of our tools - engine agnostic, to help rust game developers integrate them into their games, engines, and crates.


To learn how to run an example project on your own, build, test, and start using crossbow - read our full documentation here.

If you want learn more about crossbundle we recommend you to start from here.
