The '''#haskell-game''' [[IRC channel]] on irc.freenode.net is for everyone interested in game development in Haskell. This is the channel page and a starting point for haskell game development, subsuming the old Game Programming page. Please link all known games, libs, and useful resources here.

I am interested in learning how to program games. I created this wiki page for a discussion on game programming. I am interested in how to construct a game program. How does the the general game behave, which abstractions could be done in games, how is the gameplay, and what primitives could be used to construct such a game program?

This page and the #haskell-game IRC channel on irc.freenode.net is the starting point for everyone interested in doing game development with haskell. There is quite a lot of games, unfinished libraries, and interest out there - please gather links to all of it here!

I am interested in learning how to program games. I created this wiki page for a discussion on game programming. I am interested in how to construct a game program. How does the the general game behave, which abstractions could be done in games, how is the gameplay, and what primitives could be used to construct such a game program?
