Newton Game Dynamics is an open source[2] physics engine for realistically simulating rigid bodies in games and other real-time applications. Its solver is deterministic and not based on traditional LCP or iterative methods.

The Newton Game Dynamics SDK License allows developers to freely incorporate the engine into personal projects or commercial products so long as credit is given and the engine is distributed solely as part of a compiled software program that is itself not a physics engine. Newton Game Dynamics is actively developed by Julio Jerez. Currently a new version which will take advantage of multi-core CPUs and GPUs is being developed.
