XNA Essentials

Game Programming for Xbox 360, PC + Windows Phone


[WIP] XTyped

My first game which im speccing at the moment is Xtyped a side scrolling shooter, using 3D art ssets (Models etc). Im at the design stage at the moment, but im giving myself 6 months worth of coding to get it done.

Im still learning using Chads book, so i will stop and start as i go through the book. I aim to complete the book and game together - i HOPE!


If you are interested, my DRAFT design spec can be found on my blog:




Please leave comments against the thread on my blog if you want :)


PS - Im using XNA 4.0 though.

Re: [WIP] XTyped

This forum had gone on a while with no updates so I missed this!

The document you created is great and I like your approach of trying to design as much as you can up front in a methodical approach. Have you continued to make progress on your game design?
