There are quite a lot of games, unfinished libraries, and interested people out there - please gather links here and join us on #haskell-game !

- Possible Hackage categorisation guidelines: upload games to Game, engines and libs to Game Engine, or at least to some category beginning with Game, and check latest categories before uploading
Is hackage missing a useful data structure or library for some functionality that would benefit game programming? Suggestions for useful things can be added here as potential projects to hack on.
- Octtree, kd-tree, various space partitioning techniques (maybe start with spacepart).
- Binding to fmod
- Binding to enet for multiplayer games. (jeffz is working on this).
