View Full Version : Can LISP, Python and ASP be used to program computer games?

In any case are these sinuous languages useful for particular purposes?

Yes; Python can be used to make games (for 2D games have a look at pygame.org, for 3D games try panda3d.org). LISP and ASP, on the other hand, are not really suited to game-making.

Lisp and Python are both general purpose, Turing-complete languages, so you can do pretty much what you want with them.Python is interpreted, so may be too slow for some purposes. But check out pygame.org for a simple library and a bunch of free games written in Python. Pathological is great fun!Lisp is usually compiled to machine code and supports high-performance optimizations, so it would be a better choice for low level or performance sensitive code than Python.Many games these days use more than one programming language. For example, C or assembly language for the core engine which is scriptable via a higher level language like Python or Lisp.ASP is an API made by Microsoft, which is usually used to make dynamic web content (not Flash style movies/games though). It could be used to make online interactive games of some kinds.

They can be yes, it may not be as easy as with other languages but still you can.
