Journey into a 3D world

Sign in to follow this  


Call me Ishmael
Sorry, being my first Journal entry I just felt the urge to make that the first line for some reason.

I have long been a fan of 2D games and as much as I have struggled to continue developing 2D games, the time has come to move to 3D. I am still going to develop 2D games of course, such as Dawn of Daria (Shameless plug), but I am in need of learning 3D programming aswell if I plan to do this for a living. I have been programming since I was about 8, starting with GWBasic, and I moved to C++ about 6 years ago in 1999. I have also dabbled in x86 Assembly and ARM7 Assembly for the Game Boy Advance.

Since I started learning C++ I have made the usual steps in programming, Hello World, Console Game, MUD, Win32 Game, 2D DirectX, etc. I also experimented with several librarys before learning DirectX including Allegro and SDL. I plan to post my experiences and links to sites/documents that help me in this move from 2D to 3D. I hope that my journey to 3D will help others that make the same trip.

See you next entry.
