BennuGD 2

Sep. 30, 2014 by

SplinterGU has announced a while ago that he’s working on the next version of BennuGD, and has created a forum post for discussing the features with the community.

BennuGD 2 is going to make use of the hardware acceleration capabilities of the new SDL library, and will simplify significantly the modularization of the language. By using SDL 2, BennuGD will improve its performance on mobile devices and have a better support for the new platforms.
