Maybe adding some kind of visual editor to LibGDX to make simple games- something the hipsters can do
Programming is hard for a reason.
If you can't do it, then you shouldn't be doing it.
LibGDX is a library.
Libraries make programming easier by combining complicated functions for practical usage.
LibGDX already makes programming with OpenGL really easy. (So I've heard)
Making a game with a Visual Editor is not programming.
Making a game with a Visual Editor is using a stencil to draw a picture and saying you are an artist.
Libraries != Making a game with a Visual Editor.
LibGDX != Making a game with a Visual Editor.
If you want a Visual Editor, use Unity or GameMaker.
I know what LibGDX is, I use it full time........
Guess why I threw in "hipsters" - not "hardcore experienced developers".
Programming IS hard- think there might be a reason for hipsters to pay money for development on a template engine, for simple games, powered by LibGDX?
Do a little research- one of the top searched for phrases is "game maker"- a lot of people want to make games, without putting in much work. They don't want to be professional programmers, or indie developers.
I was just suggesting it as something that could be used to generate attention + funds towards LibGDX development, since they don't get paid, and the work on it benefits a lot of people.
Not suggesting LibGDX is a magic MMO generating engine....
