Although I stated in my last post that Lua LOVE was the easiest way to create games, its not quite my favorite way.
Lua is an easy programming language to learn, and deal with, but there are many things I cannot get to work. Such as nested conditionals, and "for" loops. I could no doubt, get those to work if I put my mind to it, I'd rather just use a language that I'm more familiar with. That's why I use Perl.
I still highly recommend that if you're a beginner programmer, or have no experience with creating GUI applications, you should stick with LOVE or even Pygame, until you've gotten more experienced with programming and working with GUI's.
Currently I'm working with raw SDL and Perl. Remember if you have Strawberry Perl installed already, you can simply get SDL by running the following command in your Command Prompt: "cpan install SDL". Because after all, SDL is just a Perl module which is quite easy to get.
That is a platformer I'm currently developing. Its quite bland at the moment, I need to finish the physics and tile system, before anything else can be added.
Once the game is done, I'll make it into an .exe file, which will be downloadable off this site.
