A Mad Programmer's blog

A blog about programming, design patterns and horrible stuff I sometimes do in my projects

Game development - Part 1

Game Development

Today we’re finally talking about technical details of my game. There won’t be in-depth explainations or hardcore programming involved in this post though. We are only gonna lay down the structure, how I’m planning to realize the project and what has been done so far. The game I want to make an Action-RPG from scratch, in C++, without using a pre-made game-engine like Unreal or Unity. What I’m not making however is a game engine.

SpaceApps Challenge 2016 - Paris

Hackathon Space

Hello again, turns out I lied in my last post because I won’t talk about my game yet. An awesome event took place and I want to talk about it! The SpaceApps challenge is an worldwide event organized by NASA every year. I was in Paris when it happened so I went there, met awesome people and a great place to work. We worked on Asteroid Mining. We imagined how our not-so-distant future would look like, explained why we would mine asteroid and how we would do it.
