Welcome to Dabooda Gaming

The DaBooda Gaming Site is dedicated to 2D game playing and developing. You will not find any 3d games here, so if that is your thing, we apologize.

The goal behind only producing 2D games is to keep the artform alive. We realize that 2D has almost been erased from the gaming scene, and we don't really have anything against 3D. This is for the old-schoolers out there, the ones that grew up with 8-bit Nintendo and the Sega Mastersystem. For those who remember popping all their quarters into standups or even those that remember games that came on diskettes. Please, if you are a game developer, keep or begin again to code games in 2D today.

I have strictly dedicated myself to one language: FreeBasic. This is perhaps the greatest language ever developed, especially for those old school Q-Basic fans. The DBOS libray and the Gemini Project both where created in this.

The Forum
The forum is under construction. However, as I am the only one working on DBG currently, it may take some time or may never come to fruition at all. Apologies in advance.

Viewing This Page
This site is best viewed with a resolution of 1024x768. It uses Javascript, so make sure you have that enabled or it will be a huge mess all over you screen. Also if you like this site and want the source, just contact me and I will send it to you.
If you hover over something and it lights up, click it. I installed a system that will collapse windows. This keeps you from having to scroll through large amounts of information to get to something. Just know that it doesn't work in non-compliant browsers.
I tried my best to make this page completely viewable within Internet Explorer and Chrome (most popular browsers among visitors), but there are a few elements that simply won't work. If using a non-compliant browser do not by any means collapse the windows, the content will completely disappear. You can still navigate the site, it just won't look as good as it is supposed to. If you accidently collapse a window, simply refresh.
I could have totally made this page compliant for the non-compliant browsers by removing some of the effects. But honestly the new versions of Explorer are compliant now (should have been from the get go) so is isn't too much of an issue anymore. This is in no way a slam against Microsoft, for I use window's only, it's just their Explorer that isn't that great.

Our associates:



This is just the site breakdown, a brief explanation of each section. I just put this here honestly to make the home page bigger.


This is the directory of all the games we have created. Soon I hope there will be other developers games added to this list. Right now there is one sad little game in the list, but trust me there will be some coming.

As of now, it is only a criteria as we are preparing to announce all our supported games in a small group rather than individually,

If you are a game developer looking for libraries to make that task easier, this is the section. This list will grow faster than the game list, because honestly I love developing libraries.

Curious to know what is being currently worked on or even soon to be release. Please check out this section, and do it often.

The Gemini Project
This project is currently halted, but the first machine is still being offered. For the morbidly curious or the developer looking to make there own language and/or faux machine. Then get it now.

You can get our contact information here as well as a brief synopsis of who we are and what we do. Sorry for it being a "post" page and looking much weirder than other "About" pages. Our coding messed up and it's frustrating to fix so we will deal with it for now.

On this page are many links for your viewing pleasure. The links include those for developing, other libraries, and even good old nastalgia of old school systems.
