For the purposes of my C++ training class, I am supposed to make a zombie horde game. However, I am not a horror fan, and I have 3 very young children. So, I decided to tone it down a bit and make it more comical and cartoon-ish. Thus enter: JelloStorm!
While hunting in the woods, an archer comes across a field filled with large living jello blobs that seek to encase you in gelatin! Find more arrows to keep the wiggly pests at bay, and eat wild grapes to keep your strength up!
At least, that’s the basic idea. I worked on the artwork and made it myself. All except for the outline of the jello blobs, which I modded from some free artwork. That’s probably why they look better than the archer and grapes. You can check out what I have so far at my GitLab.
I’m not 100% sure of the game mechanics yet, but I’m looking forward to learning some new things in the class. Also, I sorted through tons of great sound effects from https://bigsoundbank.com/, which hosts lots of quality sound effects that the author has made and released free and royalty free with some limitations. You can check out his about and rights page for more information. I picked out some good ones for the game.
In any event, I hope you enjoy our journey as I learn how to make this comical little game.
Linux – keep it simple.
