Pew Pew: Writing Games with Ruby


Exploring 2D game development with open source tools and Ruby.

Rubygame is a cross-platform multimedia library for the most beautiful programming language in the world: Ruby. It embraces the Ruby spirit to provide developers with a library that is clean and easy to use so you can get things done painlessly, and yet powerful and flexible so you can get them done right. With that in mind, this class will guide participants through the process of creating 2D games with Rubygame. At the end of the class the participants will have a basic understanding of how 2D games work and will have created a small space invaders clone with animation and sound.

Participants should have a solid understanding of Ruby programming.
