The default subgame is now called “Minetest Game”, not “minetest_game”:
If you will officially
call the new Android game “android_game”, I will bang my head on the table, this is such an ugly name. :D But luckily, this is only a working title.
My ad-hoc suggestions for a name:
- Minetest Game Android
Also, did I understood you correctly? You seriously want the Android subgame to be more game-like than the PC version? In other words, the PC subgame (Minetest Game) will have LESS features? This sounds a little bit strange to me. As if you had the motto: “The real game for Android users, and the dumbed-down version for the PC users. They don't care about gameplay anyways.”.
I am a PC user. I do not use Android.
Also, I don't see why you even want to create a different subgame for Android in the first place. Is Minetest Game not feasible for PC? Do you have any data on how well it works on Android? If not, I think there should be first some data gathered. If Minetest Game works just fine on Android without performance problems, then I don't think it is neccessary to have 2 very similar subgames next to each other. Also: Have fun handling all the redundant code then. ;-) :P
Also, I think Minetest Game not being enough like an actual game is a general problem and not related to the platform at all. In fact, the developers could not even agree on what Minetest Game is supposed to be. A sandbox? A game (remember that for a game, you need some sort of goal, some sort of challenge, and, most importantly, meaningful (!) decisions)? A demonstration? Something else?
If you can't answer this simple question for Minetest Game, then I don't see why you would be able to answer it for the Android subgame. I see you do not even plan to make it from scratch, but just base it on Minetest Game. Pfff …
PS: I first thought this was a weird off-topic thread which oddly even became sticky, because I thought you were talking about a COMPLETE NEW video game for Android, unrelated to Minetest.
If you would have said “subgame”, I would have understood it immediately.
