  3. Apus Game Engine supports Linux

    Just ported my card game Astral Towers for Linux. It's a card game made with my open source pascal engine, which is available at Github (https://github.com/Cooler2/ApusGameEngine).

    Now there are 2 game versions, both built from the same source code:

    • Windows - 32-bit, built with Delphi Community Edition.
    • Linux (64-bit, built with Lazarus 2.11 / FPC 3.3).


    The game project's source code is available for all my patrons at Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/ApusGameEngine) ...
  4. Apus Game Engine is now open source

    I've published my game engine (used in games like "Spectromancer" or "Astral Heroes") under the BSD-3 license at https://github.com/Cooler2/ApusGameEngine

    Many thanks to all the people who supported me on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/ApusGameEngine) as this was the 1-st goal.
    There are more cool goals there, so you're welcome to support this development too :-)
