Using LaTeX as a graphics generation language for games?
by aetherspoon on Mon 6th Jun 2005 18:36 UTC

There has been speculation at GameFAQs that LaTeX could be used to develop the graphical front ends for text-heavy games. Ie. the modern ports of nethack to Windows and the newly released Intel Mac OS X could benefit from the layout and formatting benefits offered by LaTeX. Combined with OpenGL accelerated rendering, the speculators state that this could be the comination necessary overcome the lack of innovation in modern day games.
