Initial platform: MacRuby

I have made my decision.  The initial platform will be Mac OS X (probably >= 10.6 for now).  I am going to use MacRuby to develop this game.  One of the reasons I want to do this is to be able to create a focused polished game.  Even though I am going to use MacRuby, I would like to develop the game with the idea of porting it to other platforms later.  This will lead me to separate the game logic and the like from the UI and platform details.  If it makes sense, maybe later I could hook into another platform library.


  1. Thank you for pursuing a way to have Asterax come back to life! An amazing story as you tracked down the developers! I also fell in love with this game when I first played it on my mac clone, PowerComputing computer many years ago.

    Good luck with developing the game, and I hope to see it available on the net soon!

    Thanks again!

  2. Looking forward to Asterax again. What a great game!!!!!!!

  3. Haven't seen a post in a while. How's the project going?

  4. It has been dormant for some time, but I have dusted it off and am starting in again in ernest. Just published another post!
