The Lone Hobo
A simple text-based adventure created as a showcase to my students in Game Programming & Design. My students will create their own text-based adventure game as their first game project of the year.
The primary things I learned in the creation of this game include:
- Variables in C#
- Branching Statements in C#
- Simple graphics and text manipulation in Unity3D
- Storytelling and the narrative experience
- The creation of a simple Game Design Document and storyboard
- How to create a simple game engine: the finite-state machine
- Accepting keyboard input from the user
Things I added:
- Glowing title
- Multiple scenes
- Sound effects
- Graphic Buttons
This story was two years in the making and describes the experience of one man and how a bunch of kids changed his life forever. The original game concept follows Ben Tristem's course "Learn to Code by Making Games: The Complete Unity Developer Course." Microsoft Edge will not display the hardware cursor. Use Chrome or Firefox, headphones, and full-screen for the best experience!
V1.3 Coming soon...
V1.21 Fixed several bugs, made improvements to sound mixing, text, grammar, etc.
V1.2: Music in the game, bugs squashed, more typos corrected and more secret level!
V1.1: Significant updates to the Apartment, Market, the Room, Credits, as well as the secret level.
V1.01: Exceptions caught, bugs fixed. Hardware mouse does not work correctly in Microsoft Edge. Use Firefox or Chrome for best results.
V1.0: Initial Game Release
