As the title suggests, we (me and my bro) want to do develop stuff in D, particularly games. I know that this programming language has a small community (if you can even call it that oO), but we tried the language and really want to use it if possible (e.g. handling with arrays is so straight-forward!). AFAIK, libraries written in C can be used with it.
We already know the DSource.org
page, and would love to hear what good game engines are usable for D (or also for C if it's worth wrapping the functions
). Please note that this will be our first experience with game engines.
I already tried to install Yage, for that I need to install the Tango standard library, but it won't install into my home directory with DSSS... if anyone could help with that, I would appreciate it.
If someone is interested in joining our projects, please write a PM. We will start with a little shooter to try out engines and stuff, then we will try to create an ((M)M)ORPG.
When people like us decide to program a game, artwork, models, animations, sounds etc. are always needed
(I can compose music, but additional tracks are welcome, of course). If you want to contribute, don't hesitate to PM me if you are a creator, or write in this thread if you know good resources or are a creator and make your stuff public. Needless to say, quality is important.
Finally, an important condition for our development plans is that our projects will be Free Software, which means:
The source code we write will be licenced under a GPL licence, everything else under a Creative Commons licence. External resources have to be licenced like that or similarly as well.
