Better late than never

Hi all! This is my first post. I woke up at about 8:15 AM to check the theme and realized that it didn’t really appeal to me that much. So I slept over it a couple of hours more, it’s now 11:26 AM, and I decided to toss away my high ambitions and just make something for the sake of being able to enter in this frenzy at all. So, a little board game/RTS hybrid is my current crappy idea.

Just made myself a cup of green tea to get me started. My tools:

  • the D programming language
  • SDL
  • OpenGL
  • a couple of homebrew classes I regularly use for game programming; vector math, font rendering, that kind of stuff. No time to post that now, but it’s online in a couple of places, so may link to it later.

First step: read up on hex grids and implement one.

Playing right now: De Stijl by the White Stripes to power me for the day. This is exciting, let’s get started.
