I have really wanted to make an RPG in c++ for a while, but never thought i could do it. It could just be text-based, but I would prefer the game to be graphical using SDL, or any other library. Would anyone care to making the game with me? It would be good to have someone to work with, thankyou!
Ahhh sounds interesting. At the moment I have tried a couuple of time and have some projects, but haven't got much.
I really dont like good art, i was thinking we could just have like colloured 2d squares for the characters and buildings. I just want to make a game where stats can be trained and money can be collected and monsters can be killed at will. A simple game where one trains up a character in a world. Similar to... runescape if you will.
I have relatively limited knowledge too, but enough to create a simple game. It will be fun using the knowledge I/we have.
Some tips, you can utilize public domain media (art and audio) (and open source media if your not going to commercialize your program). With little knowledge, it's probably better to work on something yourself slowly and build up your knowledge.
SDL is a great way to go as it wets your feet in the domain of graphical programming, and is compatible with opengl.
Thanks for replying guys, Roger I will take those notes on board thankyou :)
I have successfully, independently made like 2d platformers and such with c++, SDL and opengl, and i really feel like just getting right into a simple RPG. Like a platformer but just store data about the player's money and such, but I dont think I will structure it right.
I am just am struggling trying to implement it or figure out which class to make. I just need some help in the OOP side of things, thankyou!
I really want to do thisand would appreciate some help :)
