What do i need to know to make this game?
I want to make a game. Its not a huge project. Its EXTREMLY short, and i mean really short.
And i was hoping i could get directions on what i need to know to make this game.
Its a project i want to finish fast. Its relatively short so i hope its not a problem asking for "shortcuts" on what i need to read/research about to put to make this project a reality.
First just info: i got basic java knowledge. Methods, classes. Pretty decent. Just that there are things i dont know.
"You need to know this interface
"You need to know this class"
"You need to know this method"
1. Game start
Here i want to display the text + the background will be a image
i also want a audio file to play in the background¨¨
"press x" must flash
2. If you press X (any key)
Your then sent to character select menu
You toggle characters with mouseclick, and when a char is selected the background goes yellow + character description text appears
3. Quest begins
After confirm character with mouseclick the quest begins.
Here i want to play a audio in the background as well + possible have a image background
The idea is to move the character from point A (where you begin) to point B (the castle). You move using left or right arrow keys. While "walking" (pressing arrow keys) i want a walking sound to be played.
4. Quest finished, game over!
If you reach the castle (point B), youve finished the quest, a audio file plays for few seconds and then this final menu appears after audio is finished
So anyone who can point me in right directions? Image and audio programming, putting all of this into a GUI, how to animate the stick figure to walk and other tips will be great.
Ill do research myself ofc. But again i am in a rush hence i ask here.
