At the start of the year I decided to start making a new game–one that I’ve been wanting to make for a little while. I’m not going to disclose much information about it yet, since it’s early in development, but I will say that it is a free GPS based game for the web and iOS devices called Geo Command.
UPDATE: Geo Command development has been discontinued. Sorry folks.
You probably know by now I’m a fan of time-lapse video, so in the coming weeks I’ll be posting time-lapse videos of my screen while coding the game. I’ve seen other game developers do this and I think it’s great. Alongside the videos, I’ll mention any cool stuff I’ve had to do and features implemented.
UPDATE! Here is the time-lapse video.
The plan so far is:
- Create design document (done!)
- Create the server in Python
a prototypethe intitial game in Python with pygameHTML5 and WebGL
- Once the game is balanced and fun, write it for the iPhone and iPad
- Release to App Store!
I will be releasing the Python client to anyone interested in playing the development version of the game. There is a Twitter account called @geocmd for the game, if you want to get some super secret information about it.
