Welcome to the Hellyon Software Manta Ray Game Library website hosted by

Manta Ray is the name of Hellyon's game engine. Hellyon's entire R&D budget has been blown on this piece of bleeding-edge technology.

Using the Simple Direct Media Library (SDL) and good-old fashioned C++, Manta was created to be ideal for game development.

Animated characters, scrolling backgrounds, keyboard and mouse support are (or will be) supported in Manta Ray.

Manta loads game-specific information from XML-ish level files. Implementing games this way gives more flexibility to the design of the game, makes it more customizable, and makes it easier to add on to.

So who's currently using Manta?
