About Me

Horizon

Interested in working on a project with me? I recently started Horizon, a game intended to procedurally generate interesting agents and AI instead of fancy terrain. It's a big undertaking, but I feel it is the future in games. Many games have beautiful and complex worlds, but very, very few have interesting inhabitants.

 

With my current design, agents are based on Maslow's hierarchy of needs. This makes it quite easy to have diverse behaviours and emergent results - for example, if you build a wall around a town full of people and burn their crops, they will eventually start starving and might even resort to cannibalism!

 

I've designed the system to be extremely modular - entirely new species and paths (e.g. plant grain for food is a path, so is looking for someone to chow down on) can be created via text files, making modding extremely easy.

 

After considering using C++, Go, Javascript, Python, or Java, I have decided to use C++. I have extensive experience with the language and already have a large library for games implemented.

 

If you know C++ and would like to help on the project, check out the repository. I intend on keeping everything open source for the time being.

 

BIO

I am a young game developer who has been programming for 5 years.  I mostly code in C++ using SFML for graphics. I love studying about game coding structures, game design, and innovation. I'm learning OpenGL now.

My primary machine is an MSI CX61 with 6 GB ram, i5, Nvidia 645m, and Ubuntu 14.04.
 
All of my code is open source and available on GitHub.
 
I made Au 79 Games, which is my main website.
You can learn more about me, read some of my game concept designs, and see the projects I'm working on here.

 

If you live in Idaho or Utah and want to meet up & talk about game development, I'd be open to that! I'm very lonely smile.png. Just PM me.
