Objective: To recreate an updated version of the old graphical text based DND
game. This time instead of using only the alphabet character text, this
version will try to also use the ASCII control characters to construct the
game environment. There will also be some extra features and a different
character build system.
Note: Once there is a semblance of playability I plan to post this game on
sites in order to get some feedback from those interested. Also this is mostly
a learning tool for me, since I haven't touched any programming language for
nearly 15 years.
System info: Any PC OS should be able to run this program and I do fully
intend to support Linux, Mac, and Windows. I'm looking for full portability
with this program. I plan to write this using only C++ and will share the
Contact info: SourceForge.net. Comments are welcome, but please keep it based
on constructive input. This is not intended to be a fancy game and at this time
I am very much a beginner to the C++ language. If this actually works like I
intend for it to I'll be impressed myself just for that fact.
