New open source game engine released

I have now released a new game engine called Longford:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/longford/

You write the games in Lua and its for 2-D games only. Longford is cross platform and can easily be ported to any OS. Write once, run anywhere!

Longford currently exports for BlackBerry and Windows but I intend to add other platforms in future including iOS (or get involved as a dev and help me add them!)

Full documentation:

I'd be happy if people want to sign up as developers on this project. Or leave comments in the forum (on SourceForge) if you want more features etc.

Cheers,

John.
