Yeah for the C++ side, it's just a library, so you can do whatever you want. It doesn't even include the Lua bindings in it, much less a player. And the IDE has a Unity-style export thing that just makes a self-contained application.

Ivan: can you confirm this works on ios? There is more than just rendering to think of, e.g. touch/multi-touch support.

Is this "yeah if you edit the source yourself you can kinda get it limping along on the latest iphone" or "this is supported and tested in ios and here are 10 example programs running at 60fps showing multi-touch and tilting support on iphone 3gs"?

Adding support for mobile platforms is NOT like supporting mac or linux, it likely requires significant amounts of work! Is this a major priority for you or an afterthought (both are legitimate but I'd need to know that before making an informed decision)?

There is currently no mobile support at all. iOS support is planned in the near future, but not until everything else is stable. That said, it's designed to be easily portable, so it should be pretty trivial to do (mostly writing an ES2 version of the GL renderer and making barebones CocoaTouch core, everything else should compile and run out of the box).

Ok thanks!

I hope you'll also think of adding android support eventually (the input extensions can probably be handled by one of the existing open source cross-platform mobile libs).

Hi Ivan, this is looking really cool.  Regarding the IDE, will it be possible for users to extend the editor with their own customisations?

As it is open-source you can do whatever you want with it...

Hi Ivan, this is looking really cool.  Regarding the IDE, will it be possible for users to extend the editor with their own customisations?

It's designed in an extendible way, so you make a class that handles a particular extension(s) and gets access to an entity anchored inside the IDE, and register a factory for it, and it will be created automatically when the file for that extension is selected in the project manager. You just handle file loading/saving and whatever goes on the screen.

Right now it's all C++, but the plan is to have Lua based editors at some point, so you can quickly add editors without recompiling the IDE or dealing with plugins.

That's great! One of the best features about Unity (in my opinion) is the super clean/easy interface for extending the editor windows and property inspectors to make them work however you like. It's great for adding sweet workflow solutions for yourself or your own games in particular and personalizing the editor for projects.

This is looking good man, looking forward to playing with the editor and building some more Polycode prototypes.

Completely agree with you ChevyRay, that's why I asked  Smiley.

Ivan, did you change the release date from 12/12/12?
I was so holding my hopes on tomorrow.

I'm really keen to have a play with Polycode.

I did some searching around before and found this video with Ivan talking about Polycode. It was uploaded about a week ago.

3D's all there code-wise, but no editors for it yet. Actually, there's a material editor in the IDE, but thats about it. The idea is to get the 2D stuff polished up and then bang out the 3d editors. There is a lot of code that will be reused from the 2d editors, so the hope is that it will go pretty fast.

I read your tweet over at Twitter : https://twitter.com/Polycode/status/289101433851219968

Do you have any mid-term or long-term plans for deployment to mobile devices?
In particular Android and Windows Phone 8.

There are very immediate plans for iOS and Android and basically no plans for Windows phones, though it all being opensource i'm sure it would be easy enough to port Smiley

The iOS and Android ports will being development proper at some point next month. I also have an OUYA dev kit coming, so if all goes nicely by end of spring it should have full Android/OUYA support.

I don't know if everyone else is still waiting on binaries, but some guy on the forums has a pre-complied version for mac you can run.

and his git repo is here
