Playing a computer game is one thing, but have you ever wondered how these games are produced?
Do you want to learn how to make your own computer games?
Is it really a 'dark art' practised by gurus working in secret for large companies?
Do you want the satisfaction of showing your friends cool games that you have created?
4D Systems would like to introduce the PoGa, a Portable Game Development console and 4DGL (4D Graphics Language), a cost effective way for you to be able to learn all about game development and programming.
PoGa incorporates a 128xRGBx128 pixel full colour TFT display, 'standard' game console push button layout for controlling the game flow, a small loudspeaker for sound effects, and a micro SD card for storing images and game data. It is driven by the tiny yet powerful GOLDELOX-PoGa custom graphics processor from 4D Labs. Graphics, text, image, animation and countless more features are built right inside the chip. For portability the PoGa can be powered for many hours on standard 3xAAA batteries.
The 4D Graphics language provides enough power and flexibility to make some really cool games and learn the 'art of programming' with a leisurely learning curve. The 4D Workshop incorporates a text editor, graphics tools, compiler and program down-loader in a neat and easy to use package. You can have your first demo game running within minutes and then start to understand how to modify and improve existing games or use 'building blocks' of code to create your very own games!
