-Intro to Game Development at MHacks VI
What it does
-Shape Strife is a simple game in which the player is a large sphere being chased by rectangles. The player can destroy the rectangles by firing smaller spheres at the enemies.
How I built it
-After going to my first tech talk on video games I built off of the concept. During the tech talk we learned about basic functions of unity and created a game where a sphere moves left, right, up or down while shooting mini spheres at moving rectangles.
Challenges I ran into
-The main challenge was using Unity and MonoDevelop to program in C# as this is my first time using either system.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
-Having taken a class in C++ I am proud of the fact that I understand how some of the code works. However when I complete this project I will proudly be able to state that I created my first 3D game.
What I learned
-I learned how to program in C# as well as how the Unity and MonoDevelop systems work
What's next for Shape Strife
-I want to integrate the EA API into my program. With the EA API fully integrated I will be able to use a phone device as the controller for game.
