I wanted to let all of my fellow LDers know about the turn-based strategy game for Windows Phone 7 that I developed recently, called Verterum. The game is designed to be easy to learn, but to have some interesting strategy too. Check it out, tell your friends! Here’s a screenshot of the game in action:
Developing the game with XNA and the other Windows Phone APIs was definitely a learning experience for me, as I had barely touched it before. Despite that, I’m happy to inform you that developing the game with XNA was very smooth. It’s geared very nicely toward getting started with some basic development, so it’s great for prototyping. Getting into more advanced graphics techniques gets a bit more complicated, but I can’t speak to that since I didn’t work with it much for this game. Overall, I had fun with it.
Also, if I have time, I might make something for the upcoming competition. I may have a few things going on over the weekend, but we’ll see. If I do, I’ll likely use my framework (OpenGL, SDL, C/C++), or possibly XNA. Go Ludum Dare!
