'Sup, forum.
Some of you may know that I've been learning programming in C++ and SFML for quite some time. Well, I managed to get a friend into it(ErikPetrov's his username here), as well, and we spent the last 3 hours(yeah, I know it isn't that much, but it's a first) making this simple game.

The plot: Coming soon

The goal: Collect as many gold pieces as you can. Currently the game has no end but we'll think of something :P .

Graphics by: Erik Petrov(made with GIMP and a Mouse)
Coding by: Iliya Manolov(me) and Erik Petrov (done on Code::Blocks and SFML)
Music by: No music yet

Changelog:
Alpha v0.1 - First Release

Future features:
A main and ingame menu
A shop for other skins
Some mobs to make the game less boring
and much more.

Download from: greedytruck.tk/download

Asking donations for your 3H project is cool  8)

But good job, keep improving it :D

I know, right?  ;D
That's why I linked it directly to the download page. Once it's in a little bit more bearable state, we'll make donations more visible. Of course, nobody's gonna donate now.  :D

I wonder why people don't post screenshots when they introduce their game. ???
What kind of game is this?

Sorry 'bout that. Will upload a couple of screenshots tomorrow.
Basically, you are a truck that goes around the screen and collects a piece of gold.
Every time you touch said piece, it respawns in another place and your "Gold" counter goes up. That is...pretty much it.

Well not much to see (yet). ;)



Btw your link to the download section doesn't work for me, I still end up on the home-page. Maybe you should start using something else than those "hundred" year old HTML frames? :D

Also there's kind of a bug, when you move diagonally the animation sticks to either "up" or "down". You'll need one for diagonal movement as well.

Will be interesting to see where this is going!

I'll re-do all textures in a couple of days. The current ones are just placeholders.
Also, I'll be lowering the diagonal speed since the truck has twice the speed then. Might even add basic acceleration.
The font on the upper-left was a bad choice by the other dev. We'll be using something cleaner and less transparent.
And I really like how the other dev put a house door instead of a normal car door. :D
