|DD Poker is our flagship product.|
Donohoe Digital has created a software framework specifically designed for building computer versions of poker, strategy and other types of turn-based board games. The main features of the framework are:
Online Game Play - Players connect to each other in a peer-to-peer manner but coordinate through a centralized server.
AI - Donohoe Digital has created AI engines that are flexible and able to create competitive computer players that expert players can enjoy and beginners can learn from.
Tools - The Donohoe Digital GDF includes tools for easily and quickly encoding maps, game boards, and other game elements into computer-readable formats.
Standards - Donohoe Digital uses XML, properties files and other industry standards for configuration file formats
Donohoe Digital's games are built using the cross-platform Java programming language. Currently, Donohoe Digital uses Java 5 (aka JDK 1.5) and will move to Java 6 (aka JDK 1.6) as soon as Apple releases it for the Mac. Our games are released simultaneously for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux platforms.
