Open Source Java Gaming
By webmink on Mar 05, 2007
My colleague Chris Mellisinos is a busy guy, what with his video podcasts and the number of games I know he plays. But he's found time to make the Project Darkstar technology he's been working on open source. In the words of the project web site:
The first technology release under this project, the Sun(tm) Game Server, is a game agnostic, platform agnostic server technology that provides online game developers the ability to create a wide variety of games that can be provisioned through a single server platform. From mobile to desktop, online game development is about to change forever.
I gather it will be released under the GPL in a month or so , giving Java developers a whole new arena to program. Pretty cool stuff.
