Okay, so I have finished reading Beginning C++ Through Game Programming - Second Edition. Great book, I really like the way it is put together. Although I didn't learn many new concepts, the book was a great refresher and has gotten me all fired up to start on a game. I have been thinking about it for a while and I think I am going to make a 2D side scrolling almost shooter like. I am still playing with some names for the game and the story line a bit. I would like to say that I would like to do something where you play a mage who is betrayed and out for revenge. I wouldn't expect anything too fancy. I have not programmed much of anything in the past few years and this will be a bit of a challenge. The reason for the challenge. I am going to learn DirectX while programming this game and use it in the game. Previous games were in ASCII or OpenGL. This game is going to be a little bit more advanced than some of my previous games because I would like to have a nice polished product when I am done.
I do not have much done at the moment. I started creating some basic classes to get started so I don't really have any code or concept art to post. I hope to have at least something soon.
