In October we had the great opportunity to give a talk at Haskell eXchange 2019, where we followed up on the discussion of maintaining mobiles games in Haskell. Thanks a lot to the Haskell eXchange organizers for making this possible, and we are looking forward to future editions of Haskell eXchange! ...

Mobile Game Programming in Haskell - FARM 2019 [Talk]

At the end of August we were delighted to talk at FARM in Berlin about creating pure functional mobile games in Haskell. We explained the minimization of IO in our games, our compositional app/game structure, and how we can focus on creating games while not bothering about technical details like input devices, backends and platforms. ...

Haskell on Android and iOS

We strongly believe that Haskell is one of the best choices for game and app programming. It’s declarative, it’s portable and it’s robust. However, turning your Haskell code into an app that can be published on the App Store or Google Play for Android has always been painful. ...

Magic Cookies released on Google Play

We are pleased to announce that Magic Cookies! is now available on Google Play. The rules are simple: your objective is to remove all the cookies from the tray, but be careful: touching any position on the tray will toggle it, and also the one above, below, to the left and to the right. ...

Par thy Android - A short followup on "60 FPS to 500"

Last week we published a blog post briefly outlining several steps of optimization of a Haskell game. In the article, the last two steps, which referred to parallelism and concurrency respectively, were inverted, making it sound like the Android version was using the parallel library. ...

From 60 Frames per Second to 500 in Haskell

Haskell is often advertised as fast, easy to parallelize and to optimize. But how much of that is really true? We are going to demonstrate it using a game we are building, including how many changes we had to introduce to increase the game speed by 700% on desktop, how we managed to go from increasing memory consumption in the order of hundreds of megabytes down to constant memory consumption of only 3MB. We’ll also see the impact it had on Android. ...
