Indroducing BASIC8
« on: 12. January 2018, 07:26:24 »
As MY-BASIC getting close to its first stable release, I've put my efforts on a MY-BASIC powered project for months. Which is called BASIC8. I'm using MY-BASIC as the language kernel for this software, with some extra extended syntax, such as bitwise operators, coroutine, linear algebra... and more libraries for game and other program development. The idea is similar to PICO-8, but BASIC8 is designed mostly from my own purpose and design. And it's BASIC, instead of Lua. This is something I'd been looking for to make quick prototype, and weekends projects. Hope it brings the straightforward enjoyable experience back again of retro programming and gaming, without tolerating inconvenience of vintage computers.

Aurel, there's no demo version, I just use github for archiving pages and issue tracker. Yes that's the minimum requirement.

It's patched with v1.2.3 p1, doesn't require GL3+ anymore to run BASIC8.

Do you except Google Pay (GPay) as a payment method? I wouldn't use it enough to go through becoming a Steam member.

If you send me a copy, I'll setup your own BASIC8 board on AllBASIC.info forum.  :)

Thanks for your kindness, but I don't use Google Pay, sorry John. And there's no plan to make more than Steam exclusive for the moment, mostly because Steam workshop is a requirement to get full experience.
