I’m in.  This time, instead of Haxe/HaxeFlixel (which is a lovely language and library), I’ll be using Haskell.

While I’m comfortable enough with Haskell that I shouldn’t be fighting the language the whole time, I’ll be stuck using SDL, which is very low-level.  My game will probably be much less juicy.  Also, I can’t even get the SDL libraries in Haskell working on Windows, so it might be awhile after the compo before I have a non-Linux release.

Still, I think experimenting with functional languages is important and fun, and making a game is just an excuse to program something interesting.  I don’t even play games, haha.

LD always gives me something to look forward to.  I’m pumped it’s coming up so soon.
