The question I'd like to ask (no, did not ask it yet) is regarding searching a technlogy which:

  • Lets you program with OOP (actual OOP, i.e. code with abstraction, classes, methods, inheritance, information hiding, and stuff defined to be in OOP theory).
  • Has an assets management system (images, sounds, particles, interacting objects and, perhaps, even level editor).
  • Is actually maintained (an active community, at least one release each year).
  • Has Android/iPhone deployment options (included or by plug-ins).

This question has a specific description and has no place for subjectivity (no place for best technologies here). Is somehow this question suitable as Community Wiki?

    \$\begingroup\$ When you say "regarding searching a technology" do you mean you're looking for recommendations for some technology that fit those provided criteria? That's not (currently) a thing we consider on-topic. \$\endgroup\$ – user1430 Dec 28 '15 at 16:06

Found it.

Searching a technology is on-topic on Software Recommendations. Making sure the appropriate purpose is stated (in this case: game development), and appropriate constraints are stated as well.


I would say no, because it's still a technology-recommendation question which we don't currently consider on-topic.

I think a better place to ask this question would be the chat or (as the chat is relatively low-population) a site like GDNet, which is a more general discussion forum and not hampered by SE's "Q&A" rules and policies.

    \$\begingroup\$ Already found that as on-topic on Software Recomendations. But Chat is a /dev/null for such kind of topics. \$\endgroup\$ – Luis Masuelli Jan 4 '16 at 17:50
  • \$\begingroup\$ Several people have come into the chat to ask about technology recommendations over the lifetime of the site, it's seemed to have worked for most of them, but YMMV of course. The Software Recommendations site sounds like an excellent place as well. \$\endgroup\$ – user1430 Jan 4 '16 at 17:58
