Game Cross Compiler
This project is a website, (to be hosted at http://gamecc.org) which serves an AJAX-style application, called the GameCC Editor. In addition to that, it also provides a community hub for sharing created and in progress games.
The Editor is similar in design and insperation to the GameMaker project, which I much admire. This project was created for a few reasons:
- GameMaker does not support Linux
- GameMaker executables are also windows-only
- There are many interface changes that I have envisioned, and as GameMaker is closed source, I can't just add them...so I made my own. In python =)
This project provides a cross-platform editor (as it is web-based, it will run anywhere you can run firefox or chrome) which has the ability to compile to a variety of platforms. Among these platforms are (finished and planned):
- flash (via HaXe)
- android phone
- ...maybe iPhone...but I don't really like iPhone. If someone comes along and wants to write a backend, be my guest.
This project is also open source (as Mark Overmars' is not) which given its pluggable design can allow for much more rapid and community-basec development.
