I am working on a hobby project a "2d, rpg, top down, tile based, real time, hack and slash".
I came to a point where i am supposed to add day and night cycle, but i am oblivious how to achieve that, adding light engine would allow to make torches/fire at night to glow which would be good so any suggestions?
What i want:
To pass time from day to night and repeat.
To have glow effect like torches.
Be usable with c++ and OpenGL.
