Leadwerks: Bringing AAA games to Linux

Filed under
Gaming

Linux should technically be one of the first choices for game development, due to aspects such as faster OpenGL performance than Windows or Mac.

Yet due to lack of consumer popularity, the tools required to bring it to the mainstream have been lacking. Enter Leadwerks.

Leadwerks is a complete game-development environment which is already incredibly popular on Windows and Mac - a developer favourite for its ease of use and robust visual tools. Now the team wants to move the application over to Linux, and promote both cross-platform and original games.

Leftovers: Software Development

  • fakecloud
  • A new version of pristine-tar
  • Getting RSS feeds for news websites that don’t provide them
    On the technical side, this seems to be one of the most stable pieces of software I ever wrote. It never crashed or otherwise failed since I started running it, and fortunately I also didn’t have to update the HTML parsing code yet because of website changes. It’s written in Haskell, using the Scotty web framework, Cereal serialization library for storing the history of the past articles, http-conduit for fetching the websites, and html-conduit for parsing the HTML. Overall a very pleasant experience, thanks to the language being very convenient to write and preventing most silly mistakes at compile-time, and the high quality of the libraries.
  • Quick Highlight
    Martin Blanchard put together a new “quick highlight” plugin for Builder this last week. It was a great example of how to submit a new feature, so I just wanted to highlight it here. Post to bugzilla, attach a patch, and we will review quickly and help with any additional integration that might be necessary.
