Totally new to the forum and this is my first post, I hope I get it right.
I’m am a budding game and game engine designer. I of course follow Level1Tech on YouTube and finally made the move to join the forums here after Wendell’s call for ‘Linux’ game dev’s. So here I am. By way of introduction I thought I would post what I do and what game software I create.
I have been working on a game engine for Monkey2 (programming language) for the last several years called Alien Phoenix. It offers lots unique features like an omnipresent window based GUI designed to work on any device or web browser, 2D mapping system, physics, collision system, 2D and 3D support including lighting and more and is mega-super-efficient. Alien Phoenix is in development but will be soon available in an early alpha state. The best way to see what Alien Phoenix can do is to checkout my work on my game Phoenix USC here or on the Phoenix USC YouTube channel. I also have an Emscripten based (runs in web browser) demo for Alien Phoenix featuring it’s window based GUI.
Phoenix USC is a MMO action game inspired by SubSpace and Continuum. I will be releasing an early pre-alpha demo very soon. It, like Alien Phoenix are all developed on Linux and will be supporting Linux natively.
I’d also like to share with other developers Monkey2. I have been working with Mark Sibly (designer of Blitz3D, BlitzMAX and Monkey programming languages) designing and building a very capable, friendly and awesome ‘Open Source’ programming language available to Linux, Mac and Windows users. The community there and I have put together a wonderful programming language that is worth a look.
I look forward to meeting everyone here on the forum.
