Well, for better or worse, it’s finally finished! That’s right, my first, from scratch, no tutorial, 3D dice game, “Ship, Captain, and Crew” is now in Beta stage! Be sure to give it a try!
You can find all the source code here:
And you can download the Windows, Linux, and Android versions here:
Be sure to let me know in the comments if you find any bugs or have any suggestions. The game is not really for playing by oneself, although there is a player vs computer setting. However, the key point of this game is a sort of paper/rock/scissors game with your friends when you need to decide something, like who’s buying, or who gets to pick where/what/etc. next.
You can also read the official rules on Wikipedia, which my game follows. I mention this, because some play where you must roll a 4,5, then 6 for ship, captain, and crew, and others play 6, 5, then 4 instead. Either way, the mechanics of the game are the same, just which order you must roll the dice. In this game, I set it to follow the official 6, 5, and 4 rule-set.
Let me know if you tried it out!
Linux – keep it simple.

A pleasant game. I played again against the computer. Constructive criticism: It would be nice if, when a round was completed, if you had an option to simply play again, rather than having to go back to the main menu. Keyboard control for rolling would also be nice, for those of us not playing on a phone.
