  • TexturePacker Pro: for bundling in-game textures into an efficient format
  • TapeMachine for Android: for recording audio effects and video voice over tracks
  • Audacity: for editing audio effects and voice over tracks
  • Go: I wrote my server-side crash report receiver in Go, and I wish I could write Android apps in Go
  • Inkscape: for designing and drawing my logos, and video title and credit screens
  • Windows Live Movie Maker: for editing the promotional video
  • Blogofile: for designing this website
  • OpenGL: OpenGL underlies libGDX and Android's graphics.

  • Linux: Linux underlies Android, and my servers
  • Windows 7: my desktop runs Windows 7
  • hosts of
  • YouTube: host of the promotional video
  • Emacs: all the Go and Blogofile development was done in Emacs
  • Cygwin: for making the Windows command line usable

An additional special thanks to Jahzzar for providing the music (the track is "Two Days") I used in the Freeform Backgammon promotional video.
