I came across an interesting old poll and I'd like to see if there has been any shifts in our community regarding language/frameworks/APIs of choice. Note that I didn't list everything under the sun (This is directed at the guys who were gonna say, "What, no Oberon?")

First, read the message thread and see the poll at:
http://www.idevgames.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5954

And then vote on the new poll.

Cheers,

Ah, I was wondering why I was seeing that poll again.

The brains and fingers behind Malarkey Software (plus caretaker of the world's two brattiest felines).

LOL! That was the first language I ever learnt, and by extension, the first in which I made a game*. Smile


(*) Actually, a few, including a "getting out of a maze" game and a 2D racing game, both very simple

Logo was my first language also. I had some really really original game designs with logo, all very simple. It was cool because at that point I had played at most 2 different games and didn't know any of the common devices. I wish I could retain some of that 10 year old genius.

Funny that there are more Cocoa devs than Obj-C devs. Huh

Well, since the poll is just for games I won't vote, but my development environment is Xcode writing in Objective C and using the Cocoa framework exclusively.

If I ever do games again, it will most definitly be in Obj C/Cocoa, I don't think I'll touch C/SDL again, but who knows.

5 Ruby Game developers? Who? Other than myself and OSC, I haven't heard any others mention using Ruby for game development.

I use alot, AppleScript/ActionScript/Obj-C/Cocoa/C++/SDL/Lua/Python and yet, I'm not good at any of them Grin. I might squirm my way into Ruby if I can figure out how it works
