Android development

We have been wanting to try the Android platform for some time and just recently bought an HTC Desire phone (It rocks, not so much the multitouch implementation).

Right now we are:

  • Investigating the platform, going through the API and Best Practices, to see what kind of games we can do, and how easy it is.
  • Decoupling our engine from some libraries like Slick2d and Groovy in order to test if we can reuse it for Android development.

One huge issue with Android right now is that the market has support for selling apps from a little list of countries. Of course Uruguay which is where we are from is not one of those. So we have to see if we can make things that can be supported with ads, donations, other markets (not the main android market), or some other solution.

We will be making some update when we have more knlowledge about this interesting platform.
