Everyone needs a hobby

Like the title says everyone needs a hobby to keep them out of mischief.

To that end I’ve decided to try my hand at writing a simple game, nothing fancy mind you.
Now I’ve not thought this out so as they say “Fail to plan, plan to fail”, so I’d expect this to ever go anywhere. But its about the journey and the journeys outline is as follows:

  • Support multiple users, I’m aiming for say 32 concurrent players.
  • Either first or third person perspective.
  • RPG, role-playing games are what I play so I guess that’s what I’ll try to do.

There are quite a number of game engine frameworks such as Unity, Unreal Engine and CryEngine for example which are what any sane individual would use. But in this case I think I’m going to veer towards Ogre, its not as complete a solution as the others but for my purposes that’s a plus.

So with kernel of an idea I better get started.
