Sorry, I actually forgot about the freepascal port of
the SDL lib.  That said, I think that SDL is one of
the best tools out there for developing games and
deserved mentioning.  In any case, I can say for
myself, that I would be interested in and SDL_Image,
SDL_ttf and SDL_Net port.  But I would also like to
see some more examples/demos too.  So, I'll start
sending some demos to the project today.  I have a
few.  :)

Anyone with a FreePascal game please e-mail me a link,
description, hardware requirements, and target OS
information and I will link to it from 
http://www.astrodust.com.  I'll be resurrecting that
site and I would love to trade links.

I agree... And there are many tasks not related to
game play that someone could do even if they feel that
game development isn't an avenue they would like to
pursue.  And if you are the creative type, obviously
there is a lot of opportunity for you too.  Math,
database, art, music, beta/alpha testing, UI,
compression, encryption, are just some of the areas
you could be helpful in, even if you aren't interested
in creating a game.  Although, I hope that there are 4
people here interested in being the core of an indie
FreePascal game development team.  

If you are interested, please contact me and we can
all start planning a new game.
