So I decided to open source my dungeon crawler game that I made a while ago. My original plan was to develop it further and make it into yet another Xbox indie game available for download.
However time was always a problem while I was at university so I never got around to completing it. I hopefully one day however will return to complete a similar like game but I wont be making it in C# or reusing any of that code. (Except maybe the level generator, that was pretty incredible if do say so myself).
Feel free to use any of the code or any of the art.
This day two years ago I released my very first game and i’m quite happy to that two years on it still manages to rake a good amount of downloads and sales.
Which Is why I have decided to release it on windows phone. I have learned a lot during the past two years and It will be noticeable in StormGate for windows phone. The new version was completely rebuilt from scratch, I wanted to build something that would be extremely expandable, so that it will be very easy to update in the future if becomes popular.
Windows Phone – The way it is meant to be played
StormGate on a mobile device just feels more natural, the games is seamless with touch and gesture controls. It allows you to jump quickly in the game and manage your town on the fly.
I had some free time so I decided to fix up my old XNA laser system a bit. It looks much nicer than before and the collisions are much faster. I also added in proper light reflection instead of the old system which was just the mirrors angle.
