And the name is…

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Hello you all! Thanks for comments on my previous post. I’m a very encouraged artist now. :-)

I’ve selected the best name for the Simon clone: Garfunkel. Thanks to Christian Sasso, who suggested the name. Do you like it?

For those who wants the SVG, checkout it from the gnome-edu module at GNOME Subversion repository.

I’m working (slowly, because I have not many time) on the code and I’ll release it as soon as possible.

Dear Masters of the Coding Art,

What is the best way to draw the SVG (please keep in mind I’m writing a game) into the widget? Using LibRSVG and GdkPixbuf (as in Monkey-Bubble) or using rsvg_handle_render_cairo? Thanks for your very welcome help.

Another name for GSimon

The new (temp) name of GSimon is Genius. I’m still checking for legal issues related to this name, but I think is a good name for a Simon clone.

Also, I left the direct drawing on Cairo to use librsvg (which can bring up different themes for the game). I’m not a good artist, so what you think about the default theme?

Comments are very welcome. I need an icon for Genius too.

GSimon is coming!

I’ve worked in a game called gsimon, a Simon clone for GNOME. It’s my first code using Cairo and I hope will be the fist project of many others.

I’ll code some educational software/games and propose to add a “gnome-edu” module in GNOME. GNOME needs educational stuff.

What do you think about it?
