Dot World Maker => After 1 year

Postby a_bertrand » Thu May 04, 2017 3:40 am

Hi,

I thought it would be time to post some updates on my latest engine: Dot World Maker. Last year (around April) I started this huge (for me) project and while I relatively quickly had a fully working engine, it took a lot of efforts to have something I was actually happy to share as usable engine. If I check back my log, I would say it took around 6 months before you was able to create a fully playable game.

Fast forward 1 year time after the creation, and we now have an engine which is around 40.000 lines of code, all of which is written in Typescript. I do now have somebody starting to help me on the code, and some others writing their games or modules. It is certainly not the best well known engine out there but it has its fair amount of features and tricks, while having a still relatively accessible learning curve (I hope at least).

The list of features is still growing and the engine design still seems to cope well with all the goodies we throw at.

For example, we now have an usable DB system from within the scripting language or even the possibility to modify the map directly with draw functions within your own scripts. You can have maps which reacts to events and change over time for example.

On the dark side of the story, the guy which started the project with me simply disappeared and stopped talking to me. Maybe he lost the faith in the project or he did have the quick turn over he was expecting, or simply he stopped liking the project. I must say the lack of collaboration with him cooled me down at the beginning of the year, but thanks to hallsofvallhalla I got the little kick which restarted my own faith ;)

Long story short => have a ride and tell me what you think about it:

1 year is crazy! This engine feels like it has been around for 5. I love the engine and it is only getting better. I am currently working on mods for it and building a game as well and will support it in any way I can.

If you have not checked this engine out you definitely need to! This engine will be big!
