So how's it going?
I'm going to participate, even though I'm judging and thus will not be eligible to win in either category.
Anyway, I just woke up a little while ago, and have dedicated the day to this (although I really need to find some time to mow the lawn - I know you were dying to know that). But I'm just trying to figure out where to get started.
I plan on doing a 3D version of Pong. I can kind of see what I want in my head although I've never seen anything exactly like it before. I can even hear some of the sounds I want. But this will be a fairly huge undertaking for me and something that goes way beyond the minimum requirements or basic pong.
I've looked at some ideas on the Internet too.
Anyway, I thought it would be best to make something close to just basic old standard pong, to get started with. A prototype, in 2D, if you will. And make it so that it is a full game except for composing music. That way I'll be certain I have all the non-3D concepts figured out and get an idea of how to organize the game code. Plus, I may be able to do Proof Of Concept for ideas in the 2D version before I try and implement them in 3D.
So, today is going to be about getting the basic 2D game going.
How is your's coming along?
