Earlier this week, coder and game designer Jonathan Blow gave a presentation on his Twitch channel
outlining his thoughts on why and how programmers might go about building a new programming language specifically for game development.
Today he publicly uploaded a recording of the broadcast
to YouTube, and we've taken the liberty of embedding it above because it's worth watching -- especially if you're a game programmer ruminating on better ways to do your work.
"We are literally killing ourselves every project, deathmarching to get games done," said Blow, during a Q&A segment. "It just really doesn't have to be anywhere near that bad -- at least for programmers."
Throughout his talk, Blow takes pains to evaluate the values of alternative languages like Rust and Go before expressing interest in working on a new language and inviting interested parties to reach out and collaborate on the idea.
