Chess Wars (Chess themed Fire Emblem/Advanced Wars clone)
« on: December 10, 2014, 05:39:18 pm »
Hey everyone. Ludum Dare 31 was held last weekend, and I made an entry for it. I plan on continuing development of this project, so I figured I'd make a thread for it.

Here's a link to the Ludum Dare entry, if you wish to try it out: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-31/?action=preview&uid=34647

Chess Wars is a Fire Emblem/Advanced Wars style game themed on Chess. Game play is pretty straightforward if you've never played FE or AW. You play on a grid and each turn you move your units and try to destroy all opposing units on the map. Here's a pretty good video showing gameplay from Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Edit: Changed to URL, since video isn't showing for some reason

Right now, my game only has two modes: Hero and Army mode. In Hero mode, you control a couple powerful units to destroy the opposing army. In Army mode, you control an opposing army. Here's what it looks like as of this writing:



In the future I want to merge the two modes together, where you play mainly as the elite force (FE-style) with supporting army reinforcements (AW-style). I might also up the strategy part of the game where the campaign is dynamic, similar to Total War or Wargame campaigns.

Either way, I'll be updating this thread with progress that I make. Feedback and suggestions are very welcome.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Yes, it's programmed in C++ using SFML for the graphics and input handling and libnoise for the perlin noise generation.

I hope you made it able to cross-compile? :D

I could see something like this being pretty sweet on the TI-84+CSE as well... :)

So far I don't have any platform specific code, although I'll have to introduce some to ensure the window loads in focus. It should be real easy to make versions that do this for Mac and Linux, though.

So far I don't have the knowledge to port to calcs, but it's not too hard of a game to make so it could be a possibility. I would also strongly consider it if there was an easy way to develop programs in C++ for calcs, since from there it's just changing some library code to not depend on SFML and libnoise.

So I finally got some of my IRL commitments taken care of and had time to work on Chess Wars. I've implemented mouse controls. You now use the LMB to select and RMB to deselect. WASD and Space have been disabled since they are not needed currently.

Download: http://bit.ly/1xyNbQP

Next up will probably be either further balancing/making armies more manageable, or making larger tiles. I'll likely be working on increasing the tilesize from 32 to 64 once I start making some proper sprites for units and terrain.
