    I am an aspiring computer scientist, software developer, and game developer. I like to play video games and learn new things. My favorite programming language is C++, my favorite game is Dark Souls, and my favorite movie is probably "Tangled."

    Welcome to PF!

    Have you played with the Unity game engine? It's awesome for making cross-platform games and for working with the Oculus Rift.

    No. Currently I'm undecided on an engine. I was considering beginning with SFML or Unreal

    Unity has been gaining a lot of traction especially because you write the game once and you can generate versions for a lot of platforms.

    I haven't tried only the Android and MacOSX platforms so far. We developed a simple game that showcased the rift by journeying through the Mariannas Trench using the Oculus. It was quite remarkable running on MacOSX. WE had to do some simple mods to get it to run on the Android due to hardware limitations.

    Here's a comparison article showing pros and cons that I found that may help you decide:
