Quick prototyping and sharing FTW!!

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Since the beginning of times (of Gemserk), I had one or more local projects where I could test stuff related to the libraries we were using (Slick2D, LibGDX, Artemis), graphical effects, game ideas or just algorithms. One example is the lighting bolt effect I talked about in a previous post, I have also made some videos of some other tests but never uploaded the code.

As these kind of prototypes could be useful for other developers we have started a new project named prototypes (yeah, super creative name) where we (at least I) are going to add some of the new tests and prototypes we make.

To be easily tested by anyone, we created a Webstart and an Android application with a launcher to select which test or prototype you want to run.

Hope you like it.

Some of the Slick2D folks are organizing a new game contest on slick forums, here is the contest poster:

We are thinking in joining the contest, mainly because we want to test some new frameworks and libraries, and to make some new games too. Well, we also want those Magicka keys to play it :D.
