From Zero to a Game: Press Start

Hey, I’m Hiroya from Lincoln High School. You might remember me from my previous column, Preschool Philosophy, but this time, I’m going on a completely different tangent, and delving into game development! I’ve always loved playing games, particularly RPGs. When I learned to program, it was only natural that I gravitated toward game developing. Throughout this column, I’m going to be developing using C++, and hopefully create an interesting game. I’ll be documenting all my progress, including the coding, the creation of sprites, the storytelling and anything else that comes up. One more heads up: all my code will be up on GitHub, so if you’re interested, you can go look at my full code here. Once I’m done creating the game, you’ll also be able to download and play the game as well.

See you next post!
