Anyhow, in other news I'm supposed to turn in a summary and schedule for a 4-week project in my programming studio class. I'm looking at it as a good way to actually develop a game for once, even if its pretty small. I'm going to relook at the little space shooter demo I did over winter break and make it into a full fledged space shooter.
Right now I'm having trouble deciding what to use for a graphics library, I don't want to have to be writing the low level functionality when I only have 4 weeks. Ideally I'd like to already have:
- Basic animated sprites with collision
- Simple particle engine (for explosions, weapons etc)
- Sound & Music Support
- Input support
I think that so far SxDL looks the most promising, but I've never used it before so theres always a chance it may take more time to rampup to than I expect. I used Ravuya's Propane Injector for the original demo and I'm tempted to stick with that - we'll see.
Anyway you can expect some more frequent journal entries in the near future as I'll have some game development related things to write about :)
