"And then there is a similar language [to C/C++] called D. This is slightly more modern than C++. It has more flexibility in the syntax of the language. I couldn't find very much information on how to make games in D, but if you are really interested in this, I mean if you are really into programming already and want to see something new, then you should look up D, because that's a very interesting language for one that is a nerd like me. Alright, but let's move on to slightly more higher level languages. So we have Java..." The slide reads: D o Also a compiled language o More modern than C++ o Maybe not mature for game development yet o To get started: http://dlang.org/ -- Marco

The problem is time, there is never enough time... :/ But my university will see soon how powerful D can be: my bachelor thesis program is written in D. And after that there is maybe enough time to participate on "One game month" (http://www.onegameamonth.com/) with Dgame.
