What does "LibGDX" mean ?

Postby Ark » Tue Oct 15, 2013 1:26 pm

Might be a stupid question but I've searched and I seriously couldn't find anything so far.


So, I'm curious, what does "LibGDX" actually mean ?

I guess Lib stands for Library.
But GDX ? I have no clue.

Is it even supposed to mean anything or is it just random letters that sound cool ?

I am not sure but thought it means - library for x(cross) plaform game development.

I think mario stated that it doesn't have a hidden meaning. :)

Mario has said he wanted something that wasn't a common term, so it could be searched. That said, he had to arrive at GDX somehow - imagnity's suggestion seems plausible. Library for Game Development - Xtreme works for me. We should see how many cool things we can come up with.

Xtreme sounds good -- I was going to go with LIBrary Game Development X-platform.

Because LibGDX is very heavy on the X-platform -- Windows/Mac/Linux/HTML/Android/iOS -- that's pretty competitive with other platforms!

It's also Xtreme though -- not a toy or something for newbs to crank out a crappy game. It gives you a lot of control and performance.
