    Im making a survival game!

    Hello, Im 14 and Im making a survival game in c++ with SDL. I guess im just an attention whore or something but i have a strange urge to tell people. So, I'm creating this game mostly to build my 2d game engine, which is about 1/3 done. The game is going to be real basic since im just making it to gain experience and build my engine, but its going to be you, your shotgun and pistol, and some badguys. Here is my progress so far.

    Update 1
    Update 2
    Update 3
    Update 4


    Version 0.4 of the game

    What has yet to by implemented
    - Death Animations
    - Ammo
    - Reloading
    - Random package drops
    - Shotgun and Uzi
    - a play again button
    - being able to close the window lol
    - maybe more i cant think of

    Here is an update. I changed the background images and made a monster that can follow you. In the next update you'll be able to kill the monster and be hurt by it.

    I don't know anything about programming, but this looks like it has potential I've made a few games on flash before, but that really doesn't count for anything. Keep going, I'd be thrilled if you made it complex and loaded with stats and rolls and shit, haha.

    EDIT: Nvm lol, you said it was going to be basic. Still, I'll be sure to check it out when it's done.

    Thanks! Here is another update. You can now be hurt, and shoot the zombie. And i did some other stuff you cant see like move images to sprite sheets and modify previous code but you cant see that XD

    sorry that camstudio screws up the picture in these videos lol.

    New update! If your thinking its kinda of ugly, i'm planning on fixing all the textures and stuff when the game is fully working.

    I'd personally use SFML instead of SDL or just use openGL for portability but it's still nice to see people doing something other than flash games.

    Could you post a playable preview of the game so far?

    Re: Im making a survival game!

    Sorry i havent been responding! The project was haulted about week and a half ago because my computer flipped out and wouldnt turn on, so we went to someguy to back up my precious files then we sent it to HP but i forgot to put the shipping label so they sent it back to my house lol.

    But, i sent it to HP again with the shipping label and it will probably be back in like, 2 weeks. The game probably would have been done by now too >.

    I'd personally use SFML instead of SDL or just use openGL for portability but it's still nice to see people doing something other than flash games.
    Yeah i found out about SFML when i was already pretty comfortable with SDL and when i tried to set up SFML i had a lot of problems so i just stuck with SDL. And i havent learned OpenGL yet but i plan to after i finish this game, and another game that will challenge me to make AI that actually looks intelligent.

    Could you post a playable preview of the game so far?
    The game right now is just you, and a couple zombies. Everything works but i haven't got a wave system working yet. The game isnt going to be that big, so I'm just going to wait and release it as complete as possible.


    The next update will most likely be the last before I release the game.
