XNA game day 1 + 2

Two posts ago I said something about making a game with XNA for school. I think it would be fun to make a series of progress posts about this little project. Also to be more active on the blog. 😛

Anyway, we (me and a classmate) now have some details now about our game. I’ll only describe the days we worked on it.

Day 1

We mostly discussed what kind of game we wanted to make. It shouldn’t be something too complicated (like an MMO) but not too easy. (like another pong clone)

We brainstormed a few game ideas. (Cave Story clone, platform game and a space shooter) Then we discussed the concepts of each idea. We decided we would make the 2D shooter. Something like Warblade.

Day 2

Now that we knew what we were going to make, we could start programming a prototype. Nothing too fancy, but you have to start somewhere. You can shoot bullets and move the spacefighter. This is what you see in the picture at the top of this post. We also started to gather some basic ideas.
