Ikey Doherty Launches Open-Source Focused Game/Software Development Company
Ikey shared with us that he left Intel back in May to begin his new adventure: Lispy Snake. Lispy Snake is a UK software development firm that at least initially is working on a game engine and games. Given Ikey's experience, the firm is focused on leveraging open-source technologies.
Lispy Snake's first game is being developed under the title "The Last Peacekeeper" as a bounty hunter type game. Powering the game is a "cross-platform gaming kit" or framework that is written in the D programming language. BGFX is currently being used for rendering with the Serpent gaming framework, Newton Dynamics for physics, OpenAL for audio, and other modern open-source libraries. The code is being developed in the open on GitHub.
