Linux

I've been using linux again recently after a long break. I've installed Ubuntu 11.10 onto the 2nd partition of my laptop's hard drive and I'm regularly booting between Windows and Linux. I've also been investigating a number of other operating systems via Virtualbox.

I'm still spending the majority of my time weighing up different languages and libraries to write my roguelike game in. I think I will have to just pick one soon or I'll never start.

Hi graspee,
I recognize you from the Spectromancer forum on Steam.
I'm very annoyed that that thread got deleted I missed the last five comments. D:
I wasn't except the thread to last forever but I wasn't done yet. :'(
I assume what pushed cooler to delete it was the little eva and Tealus getting in a little tiff that went too far. Was it anything else? I don't know about anyone else but I still intend to pursue this further as being an indie only gets you so much leeway you simply can't completely hide that there is an activation limit.

Sure you know a lot how comment games and review... Stop being like that, besides, when you do such amazing reviews its not just the dev who create the game that think you are a nice person...

Just a tip ;)

I have settled on using c++ and SDL to create my roguelike game, although I still have an undiscarded side project in 3d using irrlicht and c++.

I've forgotten to update this for so long! In the last few months I've been writing a roguelike game: "Pangolin Kwest". My development has gone from a Windows console app in c to using the libtcod library with C, then a tour of lisp, scheme and then ruby! When in ruby the game acquired 3d opengl graphics. I became disenchanted with ruby though, not for the language, which is great, but the difficulty of packaging the game to give to players, so I switched to using c++ and the irrlicht 3d graphics library. Development continues! Watch this space!
