Lightbulb [Game Development] Game Engine / Game specifically for Linux


ⴰⵣⵓⵍ
I have been searching around the forum but I couldn't find an appropriate place to post about game development, am searching for people to team up and make something specific to the Linux platform, such as a game or a game engine for the general use of everyone to level up the gaming and development area of Linux, send me up if interested, am using plain C and OpenGL, thanks lol

There's allegro, pygame, and other game dev libs of sorts, probably some communities around those to draw from. It depends on what you want to develop your game in. Allegro would be more C, but ancient. I made a crude graphics editor with allegro in windows via djgpp circa late 90s. There's a few demos and other things with most game libs.

I guess you didn't understand what I want, am searching more for a partner not an SDK or a game engine, I already made a game engine, am searching for a partner to make something more user friendly.

English may not be my best language, but it's my only human to human language. Or has english been rewritten as much as my earth science and biology books have been in the past twenty+ years? There were 9 planets and Crisper was something you did to french fries and buffalo wings.

Normally when you start a project you look around. See what's already being used. And if appropriate, use it. If you make something you post it somewhere (github.com / bitbucket.com / launchpad.net) and see if anyone is interested / wants to contribute. Hop on more realtime things like IRC, mumble, ... and find like minded folks. Besides OpenGL is so Naughts, Vulkan is the new hotness. (and javascript *sigh*)

i just very quickly searched "pygame forums" and came up with this:
http://pygame.org/wiki/info
so there's mailing lists.
