Started 2005, ended July 2012 LuaPlayer

Frank Buß: Lead developer

Collaboration with Frank Buß, bringing Lua together with a simple API for writing homebrew games on the Sony PlayStation Portable.

Frank started the project early '05. During summer '05, I spent my summer holiday adding sound support, rebuilding the API entirely to make it object oriented, and wrote a simple shell for launching games (called Lowser).

LuaPlayer became something of a phenomenon. I was invited to hold a session during EuroOSCON 2005 in Amsterdam. Since then LuaPlayer has unfortunately been pretty much dead in the water since both me and Frank have had our hands full. However, there is still a community of users writing games and utilities for it.
