I have started prototyping a new project, working name: MazeLab
The aim is to create an online Gauntlet game where you can team up with your friends and fight your way through dungeons. I will probably upload code here as we go so it will be sort of like a tutorial where I add new functionality in small steps. Great to follow if you're into flixel and smartfoxserver game development!
I was thinking of following this roadmap:
- First part will be a simple client where you can enter your name and connect to the server.
- Chatting with other players
- Load level from server and move around
- See other players moving around in level
- Mobs moving around
- Save player progress in database, login, authentication etc (might split this one up a bit)
- Pick up items, money. Inventory
- Random dungeons instead of premade levels
Hopefully I will get an artist helping out with tiles, sprites etc to make it look good too!
