My first screenshot...

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody, After a long time lurking on the boards here I've finally re-started my game development efforts and wanted to post my first screenshot:
The first game screenshot from Crates DirectX 9 learning project.
Can you see what it is yet? This is 'Crates', my 3D Tetris clone project that I'm using to experiment and learn the DirectX 9 interface. As a motivating influence I'm also putting up a website (http://www.stellargames.co.uk) about my games and their progress. That way I can look at the site and see what I should have been doing over the previous couple of days or weeks, and maybe actually get on and do it. It also helps me practice interface design and layout as well as colours, etc.. It's not complete yet (not enough content) but the basic elements are set up. I'd appreciate any feedback, on either the game (from that one screenshot? I don't ask for much...) or the website. Thanks, Rancorb [edit: fixed links -SiCrane] [Edited by - Rancorb on November 11, 2005 7:56:27 AM]

That game looks really cool! A 3d tetris clone is going to be fun, lol. Good luck with it.

P.S. When you post a link, include the http:// with it, or else it thinks its on gamedev with wont work.

Thanks,

it should play the same as normal tetris, but I have to say that my productivity took a hit once I got the basic gameplay in place (falling, rotating, clearing rows, etc.)...I class it as 'testing', of course.

Thanks for the hint with the links, I thought I'd caught them all after spotting the screenshot and its link hadn't connected properly.
