Here are some statistics I put together: http://www.sacredsoftware.net/temp/APIs.xhtml

Those are the APIs used for each game in the last three uDevGames contests. (If a game uses more than one, I go by the API with which they create the main game window.)

Some interesting patterns... Notice how SDL has snuck up and overtaken even Cocoa this year. Nevertheless, Cocoa seems to be the most popular choice overall. And I feel so lonely as one of only 3 Carbon games this year...

If someone has a list of entries in the 2001 contest, I could probably get stats for those, too. Theoretically, I have all of the source code on my hard drive... I just don't want to go to the trouble of sorting out what's what.

Data not found...

Anyways, a VERY good thing you did here. And I didn't even ask for it! Bravo!

Hmm. Inexplicably, the page doesn't render correctly in some browsers, notably Safari 1.0.3 and OmniWeb. I ran it through the XHTML validator, and it's perfectly compliant, though... Must be bugs in those browsers.

If any web guru can figure out why this is, I'd be very interested to know.

I will mirror as many statistical data on my website as I can get
