Programming requires motivation, and motivation requires an idea that your interested in, and I’m interested in video games. Taking my interests into consideration and to fatten up my portfolio, I’m going to start a second project for 2011, 12 games in 12 months :)
Most of what I program doesn’t really interest me or make me want to pick up a new skill or challenge myself. It becomes mundane and everyday. In order to inspire myself and get those creative juices flowing I decided to start this project. The language that I have decided to use is Python 3 and most games will have a text-based gui, or be in 2D using pygame. The source code for the games will be available publicly on my git. One of my goals for is to make these games as casual and accessible as possible, with high replay value.
The games / genres / clones that I would like to make are listed below, I may change some of these around as time goes by removing the less challenging ones.
- Text Based Adventure
- Children’s Game
- Racing Game
- Scorched Earth
It’s a little more than 12 games but I’m bound to remove a few at a later date. The order might change as well but I’m going to start with the Text Based Adventure.
