Can I use box2D with 3d objects? Of course with the movements and physics applied on 2D but taking advantage of lights and objects volume I think it is possible to make something visually appealing.

I think you can.

Just have a physics scene going on somewhere with sprites and box2d but with everything hidden. Then have a 1 to 1 relationship with similar sized 3D objects, each frame position and rotate each 3D object to correspond to the 2D counterpart. I've done something similar in the past.

You will end up with a 2.5D looking game, should look pretty good

If you get an example of this working can you share it with the community? I don't have a lot of time to try it out, but I think if I saw it in action then I might be more inclined to give it a go in a project. Plus I could do some really cool effects by using 3D to make a game that essentially looks 2D.

DBProHopefull - This is not even the correct board for such a question, please go over to Geek Culture or the respective board, I suppose you want DBPro Newcomers board for that question...

The source of lilpissywilly should be a very good start to build up a 2d-3d physic engine I will try this out later
