Hi to everybody!
This is my first topic.
I'm currently at the very beginning of game development.
With almost 0% experience.
Have some basic in C/C++ and also a little bit in WPF C#.
Mainly working with mainframe computers, that is pretty old technologies there... COBOL... )
Now, what I want to start is a board game (for mobile devices).
I have an idea for what the game should be and how it should be played.
Basically, the board will be a grid with cells that should respond to player input.
grid example: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8655042/grid.bmp
when the player hold finger on cell (hover mouse), cell's background need to be changed to indicate this cell:
(touchDown at cell 1,1)
when the player will mark for example 4 cells, the polygon will be created by connecting cell's dots and the resulting area will be filled by some color:
Can you please advise me a way to implement this functionality and the framework that will fit it most (targeting to mobile).
p.s. don't have an option to insert images directly into the topic, so i post them as a links.
