I got the new version of Hexagon pretty much stable last weekend, so I decided to take a little time off to do something else. 7dFPS! I’ve been really psyched up for this challenge since JW started talking about it on twitter months ago – I’ve had a very particular FPS game idea stuck in my head for years now, and I see this as an opportunity to finally get it out.
I’m not starting from scratch; I spent a lot of time this weekend struggling with a flash 3D library called Alternativa – which is pretty awesome, all things considered. I’ve got it to the point where I can walk around a simple 3D enviornment and have other entities hanging around, but that’s basically it so far. The actual game content, I’ll get started on tomorrow. I’ve still got a lot of tech work to do if this idea is going to work out…
The challenge starts tomorrow. Expect daily updates, and more details soon! 🙂
