    My first sandbox

    I’m a little late with my final post. I finished early yesterday, I didn’t know what to do with my sandbox program. I went for a swim, thinking I might get a good idea, sadly that wasn’t the case. So this morning I decided to post this unfinished game area thingy.

    linux build

    windows build

    source

    The linux build need SDL and SDL_image libraries.

    I tried making a windows build, but I only tested it in wine, so I am not sure it will work.

    The source is all in one file, only ~500 line of code.

    Maybe make a sand castle or two and post the pictures. :P

      Cool ideas. This game is begging for simple water mechanics and puzzle game level design (dams, ‘save the town’, whatever).
      Still fun to make sandcastles!

      I like how the button with a picture of a house on it is actually the “quit game” button. Made me feel like I was coming home from a day of playing.

      Good job! This one has really potential to more….

      ah, it works well.

      though, at some point, the icon reversed itself for me (when it was full and i clicked it would dig up sand).

      the graphical style i like. generally, i like it, yep :)

      Thanks. My game dev skills seem to be evolving, although slowly. :D I knew about the pointer mismatch bug, forgot to fix it. :(
