We’re proud to present Connect4, a free game for Android published by Benedikt Magnus and LanIstAn today!
The game is using Castle Game Engine, with our 2D user-interface rendering, and includes music, localization (English, Polish, German, Spain), and networking support. You can plan against a computer, or against a friend over the network. I believe this is the first game with networked play done using CGE.
I really like this part of developing Castle Game Engine — seeing how others are using it to create the coolest things. Congratulations and thank you!
We also have a ton of new features added to Castle Game Engine lately. In particular, thanks to Benedikt Magnus we now have:
- cross-platform support for networking using TCP,
- FreeType library available on Android, and
- we will have a custom localization system (in addition to being able to just use GetText for localization).
And I’ll be posting more about the new CGE features later.
