Perl for game development

Recommended Posts

Perl will do just fine, as will any other language, as long as you can manage not to write messy code with it. I know of only one game written in Perl (Frozen Bubble), but that shouldn't stop you from using it if you like it. On the plus side, CPAN is huge, and could be a real asset.

You can write games in any language. Perl has SDL bindings which should allow you to create 2D games pretty easily .I haven't tried these bindings, so I can't vouch for them, but SDL in general is very good. That would be a decent place to start.

That is a cool tidbit I didn't know since I've played that game quite a bit under Linux!
