Actually i'm a developer in the SDL4FreePascal project, which as the name 
sugest, is a port of SDL headers to FreePascal. So far they work good and we 
will realease a new version soon.


Aditionally to SDL, we are also porting other useful libraries like SDL_Image 
and SDL_ttf. We could port SDL_Net too if there's interest.

I'm myself creating a game in FreePascal, but there's nothing to show yet. And 
there's already some good games written in FreePascal, just have to look a 
little hard.

It would be cool if we could create a comunity of game creation in 

Hoping to see your FPC games soon.
