There is a really good Qt/QML development SDK, being especially strong with supporting 2D game development and there is chance to get it ported to Sailfish. I've contacted lead developer of V-Play and you can see his words below. Please, pay special attention to "if there is enough demand for a V-Play integration"

There is real chance they port it to Sailfish if we show enough interest. It would be great help for developers. So, come and show your support/demand! Up-vote, share and/or leave an answer!

"I think you would also save weeks of development time using these components from V-Play

  1. V-Play Game Network for having a cross-platform leaderboard & achievement system fully compatible with QML
  2. V-Play level Editor for level creation & balancing
  3. and many more, like using TexturePacker for your sprites instead of the built-in Qt 5 sprites (it has a 20x better performance) and of course all the plugins for analytics, in-app purchases, ads, crash reporting, beta distribution etc.

Feel free to start a survey at Sailfish for a V-Play integration. If there is enough demand for a V-Play integration, we will prioritize it higher."

This would be great, Sailfish is lacking games!

Sailfish is lacking of basics. Copy and paste, systemwide, f.e. Games is not the focus, afaik.

@Moo-Crumpus: Sailfish may lack any basics but it lacks native apps for sure, games included... Not to mention this SDK is a fully fledged general purpose SDK - on top of regular Qt/QML SDK - that has quite nice add-ons for helping game development, especially 2D games. But it is usable for developing any kind of application, too...

Another benefit is they claim "write once deploy everywhere" - meaning if someone develops an app it can be released to iOS, Android, WP, desktop (Windows, Linux) etc...

C'mon sailors! It will not be enough to convince V-Play that there is interest in their SDK...:(
