A loading game is a small game that pops up while the game is loading so you don't waste two minutes of your life watching a bar go across.


Only... Darwinia has pretty much instant loading times, as there isn't much data to load into memory, it's all procedurally generated, which is much faster.

I'm sure they could slip it into the current design... somewhere...

*cough*

Any chance of a Linux port of this lil game? Or the source?

Thanks,

I can't port it directly because of the evilness of Blitz.
What I CAN do however, is rewrite it in C and then port that to Linux will zero hassle. (Like Sysrq did for Snowdonia).

How's that sound, my man?

Sounds great! Appreciate it. I will happily "beta test" it. hehe.

What about the open source part? That would be cool as well but if you don't want to open 'er up, that'd be okay too I guess.

Ooh, ooh, and OSX too?

Or are ye too high and mighty to appeal to the upper 2% of the industry? :(

If he ports it to C++ then you will be able to compile it yourself providing he parts with the source code.

Of course, if he releases the source code then a community of hackers can help to improve upon it.

I'm dying to play it, but not so bad that I want to install Windows.

The way it's being programmed, it TECHNICALLY should be completely portable to Windows, Linux, Windows CE and Macintosh. But that's bearing in mind I'd need to be able to compile it on these systems to compile for them. Unless I do CRAZY EMULATED THINGS. Which I might just do.

OSX has only 2%?

Ah well. It is clearly the top 2%.
