digitalmars.D.announce - Gammarace Game

Greetings again fellow D programmers,

I wanted to announce my latest, and third, game I did in D called Gammarace!.
http://distanthumans.info/gamedevelopment.php

Its been about 5 or 6 months. I have been busy adding ATI and ODE.org
enhancements to Aldacron's Derelict, but I managed to find time to hack out
another game.

It is a simple Vector game written with SDL, OpenGl and D. I had fun writing
it. I decided to take a break from my larger game to do something quick and
easy. My larger game involves DerelictODE and a little bit of 3D spice mixed
in. :)

I realize the Windows binary is missing but I intend to get one soon.

I plugged it on digg if you can "digg" it. You can dig in now that we have a
"fork" in D to use. lol.

Cheers everyone

Very cool. I built it on windows with the latest D. Stuck the binary here: http://www.billbaxter.com/tmp/gammarace.exe Might want to mention that folks will have to have the latest SDL.DLL and SDL_mixer.dll (and anything else I just happened to have installed arleady so didn't notice). http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_mixer/

Thanks Dejan, I knew there was one place I forgot! And the silly thing about it is I read that site just about everyday. :)

Wow. I gave up after the 20th page or so and it was just a few days ago that I posted it. So I searched for it using the URL and distanthumans. I finally found it: http://digg.com/programming/Having_fun_making_games_in_the_D_programming_language ;-O
