    I noticed there isn't really a general game development thread around, so here's one.
    Are you making anything? Let's see it!

    https://jackdandy.itch.io/deus-vault
    I've been making a game called Deus Vault. It's my first one, but I'm gonna see it to completion no matter what.
    Might look dopey but I already put in too many hours to give up now.

    Anyway, it's a simple Roguelite, which is real-time BUT all the characters are fixed to a grid. (Think Megaman Battle Network).
    You play as a crusader going into an ancient temple, fighting a host of enemies.

    Tried to make the focus on timing, and stamina\cooldown management.

    I reached the point where I can finally say the game is kind of content-complete, and all that's left to add is a final boss and then a shitload of polishing.
    And sound effects.
    And music.
    And animated sprites.
    :shredder:


    I might still have to do a lot of work, but I won't give up! (Mainly because I want to ditch this fucking Love2D engine and try Gamemaker and Unity instead.)
    Will post a video of some gameplay once I get a computer which isn't garbage.

    I'd love to be able to design games, but I wouldn't know where to start. :negative:

    It can be fun! Having a creative outlet is nice.

    With all the tools & tutorials nowdays, it's really easy. Just grab Gamemaker, some assets from https://opengameart.org/ and you're pretty much good to go.
    There's also www.beepbox.co for music, and http://labbed.net/software/labchirp/ for simple sound effects!
