I know lots of people on here play games, but does anyone else here make games? I think I've talked on here before about wanting to make some music-based games, but never got any of those ideas off the ground. I'm starting a new project, not music related at all, but I'm actually making some progress this time, and I figure having some game-dev-centric conversation will keep me motivated to continue. Unfortunately, forums for game-dev tend to be not even close to as active as this forum is soooo... here I am. For anyone who's interested, I've decided to go the long way around this time- no Unity or Unreal or anything- just OpenGL and WinAPI. I haven't decided on what to use for audio, but I'd like to come up with a way to at least partially generate the audio on the fly- or at least modify/mix the audio in game depending on context. Gonna make a weird game that basically amounts to "just the side-quests". Basically it would all take place in a small town where there are a whole bunch of side-quest-style story lines you can follow, but a bunch of them conflict with eachother in terms of goals and timeline, so committing to certain stories means you won't be able to complete others in that playthrough. I have some ideas of how to tie each story/sidequest to a particular goal or need the player might have, so the collection of quests sort of ends up representing the players attempt at living in a balanced way. No idea if I can make that "fun", but we'll see what happens. Anyone else here make some games? Would like to hear what people are working on, or what cool ideas people might think would make for a good game.
