Suggest a game development tool?

I’d like to make a 2D RPG in the style of FF5 and it’s ilk. What tool do
you suggest using? Trying to get rubygame to work on my mac? Or the
other rudl/ruby+sdl tools, that just dont seem to want to work under
Snow Leopard? ._.

Any other options? Is Gosu good for this sort of animation, that is,
lots of animated gifs? xD

C++ is the usual game dev language.

But ruby is the fun language :wink:

There are other options:

Rubygame http://rubygame.org (SDL w/ some OpenGL options if desired)
Gamebox http://github.com/shawn42/gamebox (Framework built on top of
Rubygame) <-- my favorite*
Ogre.rb http://ogrerb.rubyforge.org/ (Ruby bindings to Ogre3D engine)
Gosu http://www.libgosu.org/ (OpenGL based 2D)
RPG-Template-for-Ruby-Gosuhttp://github.com/Dahrkael/RPG-Template-for-Ruby-Gosu(seems
like a nice starting point)

  • my favorite aka my library

I seem to recall that someone developed a clone of the original
Wolfenstein 3D in Ruby - you can look for that on youtube, I believe.
Ruby does scale :wink:

Well too bad you’re on Mac, cause you could have used the famous tool
for that:
RPG Maker which only exists on Windows.

both latest versions (XP, VX), include ruby programming, allowing great
flexibility to the game creation.
Dahrkael template is actually based on the scripts from this software.

The guy who suggested pygame should be spanked :wink:

Use rubygame.
