2D Game Engine for Linux (or Windows on VMWare)

19 August 2012 - 10:24 AM


I'm looking for a 2D game engine that is easy to get started on. I have a good 4-5 year programming background (in Java, but I'm okay with any language as long as it doesn't involve pointers!) but I have very little idea about game development.

I'm not looking to create anything fancy - just bring to life a few of my ideas Posted Image And I don't think I have the patience to learn 3D graphics right now - 2D is good enough for me!

Now for the tricky part - I am on a Linux machine, with no means to get a Windows system any time soon. I do have Windows running on VMWare though. The game engine should work on Windows on VMWare, if not on Linux.

I don't mind paying for it down the line, as long as it has a fully functional trial version. Any ideas?


[Edit - I went through some of the posts on this forum and elsewhere. I came across pygame and SDL bindings. Though those would suffice my requirement, I'd prefer something with an IDE and WYSISYG environment.]
