fife-like engine consideration

Post by pezr »

Hi
Did you considered use an engine like fife (https://github.com/fifengine/fifengine)?
And if you did, why decided go from scratch?

I did, I even considered fife specifically.
In the end I decided to go for a homebrew engine for two reasons - 1 that it would be a pain in the ass to get diablo assets working with a pebuilt engine. If I were making a new game from scratch It would definitely have made sense.
The other reason is that a homebrew engine is more fun :p

And welcome to the forum btw!
