Hi!
I've seen a lot of tutorails on game programming on the Raspberry Pi and they all use python but can I use C++ and sdl?

Yes, you can.

Hmm, what kind of Android OS can you install on it, and can you install any apk or download from google play just like a normal phone?
Or does it use a modified Android OS?

Afaik there is no Android for it yet. You just run regular linux essentially. Raspbian is pretty much debian...

I think there is some version of Android for it, as I skimmed on the forums.
I also heard you can run Android on it a long time ago, it would be weird not to since it got the hardware for that...

You can also connect a touch screen to it. Does linux have touch screen support? (I guess it does).

It seems so after some googling. But the primary approach on the pi is still to just use raspbian or similar. That gives you essentially a regular linux distro including all the usual goodies like gcc/interpreters etc. So you can program it with pretty much whatever you want. For graphics i'd still use OpenGL ES though and not a cpu renderer. The main issue being that there is lots of OpenGL ES power but the ARM cpu is fairly weak.

What do you mean by primary approach? If I want to run Android games on RPi, I need to use Android, right?
I would also think there are more games for Android suitable for this specific hardware caps than on Linux.

RPi is not made for running Android. If you want Android, buy a smartphone or a tablet, it will be much easier for you. There may be some ROM which runs on it but I guess it won't be smooth. RPi is aimed at regular ARM distros. And there are some, like the Raspbian, which are specially optimized for RPi.

That sounds kind of cool, but how exactly would you manipulate things in the game world? Would you just create new procedural content generation algorithms? Or would it basically just be a version of minecraft that's easier to mod?

Althrough, don't expect it to run fast.  Tongue
It's going to run OK, but don't expect miracles.

I'm a bit disappointed, when I first heard of the rPi, I thought they would go back to simpler programming paradigms, with assembler and stuff like that, instead we get linux, openGL and C++ No No NO

Err, the whole point is that you get a complete OS instead of doing painful embedded programming.

It's for children by the way, the default OS is focused on providing a simple dev environnement using Python.

If you want lower kind of hardware, Arduino is your friend.
