I've started a very simple Mac game programming tutorial, using SDL and Xcode on Leopard/Snow Leopard.

Oldest articles are at the bottom, so start there! Any feedback is appreciated.

This is really nice! I didn't get a chance to go through it in depth but I like what I see so far. There are a lot of people who are not sure how to start making games and I think this would be a great help to them.

Thanks for this. I book marked the page so I can refer to it later. I have been wondering when I finish the programing book I am working with how to move forward from there, this will help.

Been working 16-hour days at my day job, so I haven't had any time to do a new article or even surf the web.

I have made a Dr. Mario clone that I will probably cover soon. I plan to do some stuff with the space ship as well.
