Metal Game Demo

I built a 3D engine and game world without using any libraries, platforms, or frameworks, directly on Apple's Metal GPU abstraction on MacOS. Includes application code to move the player, transform world objects, projectiles, animations, sound effects, AI pathfinding, and the clip was recorded using a handheld XBox-like game controller.
