    HGE-unix

    I’ve been using HGE for all my LD games so far, and it’s been used for a few other LD games such as Hockey Islands, but it’s previously been Windows only. Thanks to the need to port the excellent Hammerfight to Mac/Linux for the Humble Indie Bundle 3, there’s now a port of HGE available here. Development of HGE itself seems to have died off, but as it is I’ve found it ideal for LD and now with it having some cross-platform potential other LDers might want to consider it as an alternative to SDL/Allegro.

      yeah man, this is pretty awesome! I am excited to see more options for crossplatform stuff.

      this thread: http://bit.ly/p42cWL also metions jumpcore, and phoenixgl (which I believe is by a LDr) both of which are worth looking at.
