If it was me, I'd do it in Ruby and write C extensions for the places where performance is really critical. The savings Ruby provides in easy programming and easy maintenance make it great for writing most things in, even games - you just might need to do some low level work where you see bottlenecks. You may get away with writing quite a lot in Ruby though if you optimise for perfomance; there have been quite a few discussions here recently on how to do that. If you want some help on how to go about it, there's a strange book out called "Game programming with Python, Lua and Ruby". You can get it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1592000770/103-57... .. or if it was me I'd try http://www.abebooks.com because I don;t mind second-hand books at a fraction of the price. There was a comment on the book on Ruby-Talk before: http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/... I myself found it fairly introductory but it has a fair top-level overview of how to go about undertaking such a project. I say "strange" because it covers three languages in one book, and that is very strange. Les
