David Roundy originally developed a Bridge game in Haskell and wrote a versioning system for this project. However as time went by, the versioning project Darcs became the more important part of the development and the bridge game was stalled.
Foo (abbreviation from football) is a playing machine of Paper Soccer, a pencil and paper game for two players. Written in Haskell, contains also simply interface using HOpenGL library. Provides bunch of playing algorithms.
Frag is a 3D first person shooting game written in Haskell, by Mun Hon Cheong. It uses Yampa, Quake 3 BSP level format and OpenGL. It is licensed under the GPL.

FunGEn - a game engine for Haskell
FunGEn (Functional Game Engine) is a 2D platform-independent game engine implemented in and for Haskell, using HOpenGL. It is intended to help game programmers in the game development process, in a faster and automated way.

Note, that this is released in 2002 and currently wil not compile.
