as some of you already know, I've started development of an Android trading card game made in Unity, using libpd and thus PD as the audio engine.
I'm not a programmer, but so far, our own coder managed to integrate PD in a way to easily prototype the audio keeping pd and unity open, using the [netreceive] object to pass numbers and messages from Unity to PD.
Indeed, building requires that libpd gets compiled via Xcode, instead of directly in Unity, but so far, things are running smoothly here. We're going to release this "bridge" we made soon as open source, and I'd be very happy to hear if someone is interested and has any advice/suggestions!
As a game composer, the thought of being able to utilize PD is like jumping from cave drawings to the latest graphic tablet :) I'm very excited about the opportunity.
Talk to you soon,
p.s. Hi Scott, good to see you're on the list, too! :)
