Yeah, I re­al­ly liked minecraft back in the day. For some rea­son I want­ed to make a minecraft in­spired shoot­er, though.

If I re­call cor­rect­ly this idea orig­i­nat­ed on a Gym­na­si­um (think high­school) or­ches­tra re­treat that I (kind of se­cret­ly) brought my note­book to. I used ev­ery free minute to code those minecraft graph­ics. What a pas­sion­ate mu­si­cian I was!

High­ly am­bi­tious project, since I want­ed to make it mul­ti­play­er and what not, but ac­tu­al­ly just want­ed to fo­cus on OpenGL de­vel­op­ment, which was su­per fun.

          } mouse;

Mineshooter with SDL…

Al­most done with rewrit­ing Mi­neshoot­er to work with the Sim­ple Di­rect­Me­dia Lay­er Li­brary. Still have a few prob­lems with the mouselook, but I should be able to work out a so­lu­tion very soon.
