Sugar Cube Releases Cocoa Sprite Kit
1:40 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
Sugar Cube Software has released the first public beta of its Cocoa Sprite Kit, a 2D game development tool for Mac OS X:
Built from ground up using Objective-C and Mac OS X's Quartz Compositing Engine, Cocoa Sprite Kit is a framework designed to make powerful 2D graphics applications with ease. Although mainly designed for 2D games, developers are encouraged to find more creative uses.Sugar Cube Software welcomes feedback from interested developers and invites them to contribute to the open-source project as well.
The Cocoa Sprite Kit (CSK) was inspired by Cocoa, valuing ease of development and rich high level frameworks and functionality. Developers can write Cocoa applications and get features such as transparency, scaling, rotation, and other graphics transformations, collision detection and graphics layering with a minimum of programming effort. CSK is designed for both new and experienced programmers who want to focus on program logic/game-play instead of low level blitters and other graphics problems.
