IwGame 0.4 Coming Very Soon – IwGame is Going Portable


Awesome news. IwGame 0.4 is on its way, we are aiming for a release this week (with a little luck). Be warned there are a mass of changes and fixes as well as some awesome new features.

We are also abstracting the Marmalade SDK out of the IwGame engine so it can be easily ported to native platforms. This is not to say that we will no longer be supporting Marmalade, we still love Marmalade and it will remain a target platform that IwGame can link with, although you will require a Marmalade license to use the Marmalade version of IwGame.

This weeks release will not be fully portable as we have just started the platform abstraction process. We will be working on porting IwGame to Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, WP8 and possibly BlackBerry OS 10 over the coming months. The final portable version of the game engine (IwGame 0.5) will be renamed to give it its own identity. The tentative new name will be the “Core Engine”

Our aim is to provide a commercial grade stand alone cross platform mobile and desktop game and application SDK along with a rapid application development system that requires no compilers or IDE’s and simple single click deployment and testing.
