Actually, Minecraft is a "clone" itself. Read more about it here: minecraft.gamepedia.com/Infiniminer Also, games like Terraria sell pretty well.

comment AAA quality game UI kit
Luke San Antonio: I'm guessing he asks whether there are websites which provide PSDs of UI layouts, the same way some websites provide PSDs for web layouts. He's looking for UI templates.

comment Why don't C++ Game Developers use the boost library?
@Leif Andersen if i'm not mistaken stdlib.h used to be the C standard library header before C++ was standardized. Now it's cstdlib ( without .h ). cplusplus.com/reference/cstdlib

@Tetrad STL is not boost, and STL is heavily used in gamedev.

comment PHP Browser Game Question - Pretty General Language Suitability and Approach Question
@JimBadger Having expressive code ( eg well named functions that only perform what their name suggests ) is much better than cluttering code with ( soon to be outdated ) comments.

comment 3D Character Development
The blender game engine isn't all that good, and I haven't seen anyone using it. There are plenty of free graphics and game engines out there like Unity, Unreal, Cryengine, etc.

comment Transfering a game from Python to C
You are right, sorry. I remembered them being for C so I didn't double check. It seems the first 8 tutorials are only using C though, so they should be enough to help you get started.

comment Transfering a game from Python to C
First of all, all the libraries you mentioned, and the OpenGL implementation are written in C. Second, he didn't say C was better he said hew knew C better. Third, answering with "is wrong because that doesn't sound right" is not an answer.

comment A* mouse movement javascript top-down game
You can decouple the rendering from the path-finding entirely, so there's no need for a javascript canvas A* tutorial. Just find one for javascript, one for html5 canvas and one for A*. You must be able to piece them together.
