Gomba 0.1 September 20, 2014Posted by Andor Saga in Game Development, Open Source, Processing, Processing.js.
I was reading the Processing book Nature of Code by Daniel Shiffman and I came up to a section dealing with physics. I hadn’t written many sketches that use physics calculations, so I figured it would be fun to implement a simple runner/platformer game that uses forces, acceleration, velocity, etc. in Processing.
I decided to use a component-based architecture and I found it surprisingly fun to create components and tack them on to game objects. So far, I only have a preliminary amount of functionality done and I still need to sort out most of the collision code, but progress is good.
I got bunch of inspiration from Pomax. He’s already created a Processing.js game engine you can check out here
BTW “gomba” in Hungarian is mushroom 🙂
