Tell us a little something about yourself!
Thanks for joining, Chris :) There is a new CL-SDL2 in development, and it seems to cover all the side libs such as SDL-MIXER and SDL-IMAGE. I haven't used it yet, but you may want to take a look around, it may save some work. Ok, have fun! and keep the group posted.
Hello Alexander! the Scheme2js approach sounds interesting. Would you consider sharing some links to resources/libraries you might use? I could add such information to the Jam page's Resources section, and it might be helpful to others using Scheme.
The latest standalone version of scheme2js (from 2011) can be found at:
(source code, precompiled jar archive, and man page and links to several papers).
A demo (a simple raycaster) is at:
Source code can be found at:
I hope this helps. Feel free to use some or all of this info.
added your links, with acknowledgement :)
I have deceided not to enter the game jam. My code is not in a state that I will produce anything that remotely resembles a game in the next 4+7 days.
Good luck for the remaining participants.
Welcome to the Jam! :) And welcome to the wild world of Lisp. It's quite acceptable to finish a little bit late, especially if other obligations eat some of your Jam time. The idea is to learn, share what you've learned, challenge yourself and create something interesting! Keep the group posted about your efforts, and come to #lispgames on freenode IRC
