Well, it looks like ABA is at it again, this time with a new shooter 
entitled simply "Titanion".  If you have played any of the other titles 
from ABA before, then you already know that *abstract* is the name of 
the game, as is the description on the site:

"Strike down super high-velocity swooping insects.
Fixed shooter in the good old days, 'Titanion'."

Of course, like all discriminating game authors, this was written using 
a very recent version of DMD (0.173) and is powered by SDL and a host of 
other technologies.  More information at the game's site:

Titanion made some press over on The Independent Gaming Source a few 
days back, where it was received quite warmly:

Also, many more Windows games (some written in D) are available at the 
ABA games site:

These games simply rock. Beautiful graphics and hypnotizing atmosphere. The site says many of those are windows-only, but they play rather nicely on wine without problems.

You can probably simply recompile for your platform, since it uses SDL and OpenGL.

The code includes a lot of examples about D specific features... and it's really clean Thanks a lot.
