    Default JavaFX 8 Video Game

    Has anyone made a video game in JavaFX 8? I am learning the API now attempting to do so. I'm not sure if it offers a complete set of tools to do so. It might. I haven't figured it all out yet.

    I dont know too much about javaFX so correct me if I am wrong, but isnt it a windowing toolkit?
    If so I would say it would probably not be a good choice for a bigger video game. If the game uses only simple graphics it might work though. High level graphics usually demand high level graphics libraries.

    Keep in mind also, that if the said game is going to be controlled
    with an Engine, the graphical libraries you choose must be able
    to communicate with it. (ie. mapping/rendering etc.). This of course
    does not matter if the game has no engine, but just a word of caution
    in case it does.
