WDL, Jetpacks, etc
First off, I'm still waiting for my jetpack. Ahem! Any day now...
We write a lot of code, and when we find parts that are sensible to reuse,
we tend to make them part of WDL (pronounced W-D-L or "whittle"). WDL includes a bunch of stuff, but what we strive for is to make it easy to just use a little bit of (aka get hooked on) WDL. One of my favorite parts of WDL is LICE, the Lightweight Image Composition Engine.
I've made available a simple Jetpack game that I made a couple of years ago
for Allison's nephew. The source is included.
Download here (win32), and it'll need the latest WDL to compile if you wish to compile it. Rob[o[tron]] of Underhill Amps made the music.
