Rubygame / RUDL / Gosu


#1

Hello,

I work on a few ruby games just for fun and use RUDL as my display
library. It seems Rubygame and Gosu are more popular than RUDL. Does
anybody know why? (When I was trying to use rubygame cca two years ago,
it was, being compared with RUDL, pretty ugly - abusing Ruby naming
conventions, more procedural than OO etc.) Do you know about any
“comparative study” of these three libraries?

Thanks,
Jakub
