Basic Pong was the first gameÂ Â created and released with the TurtleBrains framework during Mini LudumDare #58. Â It does run on both Windows and Mac, however on Mac you need to run from terminal. Â I need to sort that out a bit. Â It was a great test, I’ve been testing TurtleBrains in a few long going projects, adding to it here and there, but I decided to start Pong from scratch, not even using my premake scripts. Â Attempting to put myself in the shoes of potential developers using TurtleBrains.
The experience was great, for me as the developer of TurtleBrains. Â It would have been a poor experience for someone who wanted to use a simple framework. Â First, a few defines in my premake files need to happen automatically,Â theÂ source in the documentation directory needs to have #ifdefs around it and the general process needs a little cleaning.
But this was good. Â I will try creating more small “from scratch” projects as timeÂ moves forward so that I improve this process. Â AÂ driving force behind TurtleBrains was to make things easier. Â Start a project, add TurtleBrains source,Â make a scene, and game running. Â It is nearly there, and will get there as time continues.
