Sprite Animation Toolkit for OS X Reaches Alpha
8:56 AM | Alvaro Radigales | Comment on this story
After more than a year of development in carbonization, Sprite Animation Toolkit, a game programming library for the Macintosh platform, has reached first alpha status for OS X and is now available for public download.
The Sprite Animation Toolkit, commonly known as SAT, was developed by Ingemar Ragnemalm of Lysator, the Academic Computer Society of the Linköping University of Sweden.
In the late '90s, SAT became the tool of choice for many shareware developers because of its simplicity and free distribution, and it has helped the development of very popular games such as Pac the Man, Snood and even Escape Velocity. A comprehensive list of SAT-based titles can be found at the link provided below.
The carbonization of SAT does not only make a carbon developer's life easier, but also simplifies the port of old SAT-based games to Apple's OS X.
