About the project
Inspired by Jonathan Blow's live streams and Casey Muratori's Handmade Hero, I decided to start a project while streaming the whole process. It was a small game and the original intent was to release it on Itch.io
, but as it happens it was released on Steam!
There are three main goals with this project:
1 - Learn
2 - Teach
3 - Have fun
All the decisions of the project were be based on these criteria.
"Why write from scratch?" - To learn more
"Why make it such a small game?" - To more easily teach people the whole project (Handmade Hero, for example, fills the gap of live streaming the creating of a more complex and longer game; but there is a lack of smaller games for people to learn)
"Why C and not C++?" - Because I think C is more fun! :)
