InfiniTrap, A Hardcore 2D Maze Game Made On Linux, We Have Keys For You

By - | Views: 7,656
The developer of InfiniTrap has sent in a few keys for us to giveaway, it's interesting because it's made on Linux, and it's pretty hard. It's from the mind of Yanick Bourbeau who recently wrote a Linux game development editorial on gamasutra, so it's nice to see the developer still working away at it.

About the game
InfiniTrap is a fast paced maze game for hardcore players. The game will start off with 20 levels and will be available on Windows, OSX and Linux.

Every level starts with the player character standing on the start tile. The start tile is perfectly safe-- No, trust me. It's safe. Once you leave the start tile, you have a limited time to reach the treasure before the level crushes you. To complicate things, each level will include a number of obstacles to waste your time and possibly kill you. You can make your own levels!

Development of games on linux is great because it shows other game developers that they can also free themselves from the shackles of their current os.

More development on Linux is amazing, as a linux user it means that I can be pretty certain that if there is a problem with a game, when reported the linux version will likely get priority for getting the fix in. It also means that the developer can spend less time dealing with the OS's instabilities, and more time dealing with the aspects of their games that they find important.

Developing on Linux naturally leads toward cross platform development anyhow, which means that of course the game will run, and likely run well with little modification on MacOSX, Windows, *BSD, IRIX, and any number of POSIX compatible operating systems, unless the developer focuses on using features that are Linux specific (which are very rare, and not terribly relevent for games)

Over the course of gaming history, I can think of at least two games that were initially developed on a UNIX plaform and 'ported' to the 'mainstream' OS of the day (MS-DOS) for public release -- Doom and Doom II. They've since come full circle and are better on Linux now than they were on their original plaforms.

Developing on Linux is pure laziness! Linux is designed to offers no barriors to development on any desktop installation even if development was not considered when first installed. Where is the challenge in that? Linux development software is cross-platform and code can be created once and compiled for many platforms. Why be so lazy when other operating systems are so good at offering platform specific software that requires the code and even the choices of software to be completely redone for each and every port? Linux and all the needed software is available form free. This encourages the lazy to quit their jobs and hang out in coffee shops for free wifi, like those guys that founded 2D Boy.

In short, don't use Linux, work harder, work longer, and spend more money you lazy developer bums!

Developing on Linux is awesome because it's FREE (as in freedom)... game on!!

Linux is more stable, more secure, and more flexible than other platforms, and it has excellent backwards compatibility. It's the superior choice for developers who want to future-proof their software.

Developping games on Linux is awesome because it brings communities like GoL alive.
