Free and Open Game Programming Language for Windows and GNU/Linux
KonsolScript is a free and open source, scripting language primarily intended for 2D games development.
KonsolScript Development Team believes that the unavailability of games on GNU/Linux desktops is one of the major concerns why people keep using unauthorized copies of proprietary OS over GNU/Linux and that is something the Development Team is ought to address – we are doing our part to help promote GNU/Linux as a viable gaming platform for desktops both for Game Publishers and Gamers.
The whole Game Development Kit is suitable for teaching 2D game programming.
The end goal of this project is to have a common gaming platform for Windows, GNU/Linux, Mac OS, including mobile platforms like Android and Symbian where any newbie can learn how to make his game/animation etc.
A lot of work has been made and a lot more is to be done. It might need to hire programmers to make an engine for Android, Symbian and Mac OS, then some in-house testers for stability among these platform
