First game with SFML - A "Snake" clone
« on: August 31, 2019, 04:54:21 pm »
Hello, game developer hobbyists!  About a month ago, I started back on the game development train.  I began with a Pong game, and then moved along to a Snake game.  For the Snake game, I decided to try out SFML, and here I am!

As of this moment, the basic game is done and released -- available over on my GitHub account.  I've also been running a blog series for it over on gamedev.net.

I called it "The Garden of Eating".

I has a menu with various game options, background music, basic sound effects, and both window or full-screen mode:

And here's our snake getting himself into some trouble!

I'll be continuing to work on the game, with an upcoming story mode that I think will be kinda fun.

SFML has been great to work with.  It not only makes it easier to deal with managing the window and rendering, but also makes it a cinch to load and work with all the different game assets.  Thanks to the SFML dev team for putting this out there, and for all the years of work that must've went into it!  I'm super happy with the way my little game has turned out; and I feel like I'll be able to up my game with future projects.  This is my first, but definitely won't be my last ;)
