A similar example to Webkit

A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Havok, the folks behind games such as Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed III, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Guild Wars 2Call of Duty: Black Opshave released a free 3D mobile game engine.

The rest can always be built in. In case if you are still getting confused on Choosing the right CMS, then lord save you.
