In the history of computer games, there may be only one whose retail packaging boasted that it contained the power of LISP [via Mutiny on #infoanarchy].

LISP is fun

It's Abuse, of course.

'maybe you can revive the lisp used in the old "abuse" game? (i'd offer pointers, but i'm sort of afraid of typing "lisp abuse" into a search engine. :-)'
-- thi in comp.lang.lisp

Better be careful what you're looking for (-:

Eh, if anybody wants it, Abuse is GPL'ed. You can get the source ported to the http://www.libsdl.org/index.php SDL libraries (cross-platform multimedia) http://www.labyrinth.net.au/~trandor/abuse/ here.

Another prominent example of Lisp in games is everyone's favorite Naughty Dog Software. Although you can't make add-ons for their games, and they don't advertise Lisp on the packaging, they do brag about it on their http://www.naughtydog.com/jak_N_dax/team/team_05.htm#" webpage and in http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20020710/white_02.htm articles.

PS - can you give titles to links? The preview swallows my html if I do.
