For the glory of Pluto’s Heart

yo I’m in. it’s been a while since I completed a solo jamĀ successfully so we will see how this goes.

  • Scala, LibGDX
  • IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition, Atom
  • Photoshop CS6
  • Sunvox, Pixitracker, or FL Studio
  • Tiled? Maybe?

scala’s pretty nice for a JVM language. its standard library heavily makes use of Option[T] is super cool, though case classes are a bit of a clumsy way of handling sum types.

game jams areĀ actually just a time for me to experiment with programming languages.

    Yeah, Scala is pretty nice and powerful. You may want to give Kotlin a try sometime as well, IMHO it solves the null pointer problem in a more elegant way than Scalas Option, and extension functions are pretty nice too. It’s still a bit new though.

    Somehow I drifted back to plain Java myself after using Scala for some time, should probably give functional languages another try again soon.

    Good luck!
