Inspired by a Reddit post I figured I should take a crack at writing no less than 12 games in 2011. Luckily, the OP’s post had more than 12 games listed so I had the option of picking my own choices.
I tried to balance the genres and have 12 titles that each of them will help me learn a new thing.
- Racing Game
- Scorched Earth
Some games are rather easy to implement, while some will require a bit more effort than just a few days’ worth of coding. I will probably create the art myself.
I am not sure of the definitive order in which they will be completed, but I will start with Hangman for the time being and see how it goes.
The games will be oriented for mobiles and will be written in Objective C using Cocos2D. I will however try and see how will Cocos2D-x evolve and if things go well I will attempt to launch the Android versions as well.
I will try to keep detailed logs of my work and efforts and, where possible, will publish the source code as well.
