We will probably not be developing our games in Java, so why are we learning it?
We are learning Java to increase our knowledge of programming languages and using it as a gateway to C++ and lua where we can really create good games. Learning Java will be a useful experience and hopefully should improve the quality of our future games. The Darkness development is temporarily on hold while the developers get to grips with learning Java however we are so close to releasing the demo so don't worry it will come out soon!
