C++ programming language
Coded in C++, a superset of C programming language, slowly diverging from its roots.
The first video game about C++ programming language was released in 1988.
Development started in 1979, name changed to C++ from C with Classes in 1983. No actual standard was established before 1998, though.
Some instances of the use of C++ language can be detected on Windows by noting the presence of msvcp##.dll (Microsoft C++ Runtime Library) in the game directories. These are very often accompanied by regular C runtime as well, but this is simply because C can be used fluidly in C++ and already offers functionality for which there's no reason to create pure C++ alternative.
