So recently I have been working on a 2D vertical shmup game in C++ and SFML with a buddy of mine. The project isn't nothing real serious I started it because after 3 or 4 mini games I finally wanted to see if I could create a fully featured game that people might enjoy playing. But unfortunately some things came up with my buddy's personal life and he won't be able to commit to the project anymore.
So was looking for someone else looking to do a nice learning project and maybe release a nice little game for people to play.
I have completed most of the basic framework for the game already and am just about ready to start on the actual game play mechanics.
Here is a short video that shows what has been completed on the game so far http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3lef1WOIno
It's nothing special right now and still has a lot of work and polishing but it's getting there. Also all the graphics are just placeholders from the internet.
As I said above most of the basic framework is done like Entity Management, Collision detection, Different states and state management, Event Handling System, Resource Manager, Shader Support (1 Shader implemented), very basic GUI management, dynamic key bindings, basic particle system, animation, Music and Sound Effects(<-About half done) ect.
There is a few bugs to work out in the framework and a few things to implement still like sounds but otherwise most of the work will be polishing, improving performance and creating game play.
So if you are looking for a project to work on I would be glad to have someone to work with. All I ask is a few things.
One is that you be willing to commit to the project. I don't really mind how much time you have to put into it since I don't really have a deadline and have just been working on it for fun, but I have to know that you won't drop out halfway through the development. So to sum it up I don't mind if you have only a few hours a week to work on it I just need to know you won't bail out on the project.
Two is that you be familiar with C++ and SFML (Also preferably C++11). You don't need to know everything about SFML but I would prefer if you at least understand how it or similar libraries work.
That is about it, though if you have artistic abilities for creating sprites and graphics that would be a great bonus ;p.
Anyways if anyone is interested in joining this little learning project of mine just shoot me a pm or post on here. And if you want more information or want to check out the code just let me know.
