The first video game about Direct3D was released on December 1996.

GT Interactive, LucasArts and Activision has published most of these games

Mostly useful if a game has been already marked with OpenGL and/or SWRender.

Like OpenGL, Direct3D can be used to draw 2D graphics with hardware acceleration instead of regular software rendering.

Direct3D source code can automatically be converted to open source compatible gaming libraries using the freely available hlslparser.
