So, I had an epiphany moment...

Sign in to follow this  


So, 2 years ago I was 29 and came to a realization. Although I was working as a software developer and programming buisness software - I realized that I kind of lost sight of what got me interested in programming in the first place. Yeah, you got it - games.

Call it an epiphany.

So, I picked up some books on Managed DirectX development (thank you Tom Miller), discovered this site, and started coding, and refactoring, and coding...

Almost two years later I have something presentable. It's a multiplayer mech FPS shooter based upon a framework/engine that I designed. I wrote it using C#, .Net 2.0, and Managed DirectX 1.1.

Am I done? Heck no. There's so much that I still want to do! But for now here are some screenshots...

Very inspiring tale, and a very mean-looking mech game. Looking forward to hearing more about your progress, and the eventual finished product. [smile]

Nice woik! I'll definitely be keen to see how this ends up. Mech games are cool.

Awesome, what a great step to take! Being able to do that in your own time after spending all day programming business apps. That's great.

Welcome over to the dark-side ( or is it the light-side?). The game looks awesome, especially considering the time/learning curve... Keep at the awesome work man!!!
