Write games in Ruby with Gosu

Today I've created my first graphical game ever! And it was very easy because I did it in Ruby!

Do you wanna try it, or check the source code? Then check it on github.

Why did I do it? Because I saw this video last week and I definitely wanted to try it (to get it out of my head ;).

I've used gosu and hasu and I can tell you that it is very easy to write a game in Ruby. And it is also fast, because gosu is written in C++. So you have expressiveness of Ruby and speed of C++. Awesome.
