comment Is it reasonable to write a game engine in C?
@optician I believe Id Tech4 began life as Quake III? I would have to dig that code out again to confirm.

comment API agnostic bridges (ie. OpenGL/D3D/Whatever). Do you use them, how you make them. Pro's and Con's
Thanks! Well I would do it mostly the way Ogre did. I've used the Interface/Factory approach in a lot of cross platform development and I'm actually not sure how I would do it otherwise. I would say that you absolutely need to be working on multiple platforms at the same time though. Do not try and code everything on Windows and than try to port to Mac for instance.

comment What are some ways of sorting through zero-experience programming candidates?
I think what John C was getting at was that there are plenty of answers on SO for interview based programming tests. I also don't think that basing a decision on a programming test should be the final determination.

comment Cross Platform 2D Graphics Engines
It doesn't appear that they have a version 1.3 "stable" yet which is the version you will want for iphone support. You will probably need to grab the 1.3 version from their HG repo and build it yourself.
