A work-in-progress game and associated engine for a puzzle platformer as a spiritual successor to a college project.
Written in C# using the MonoGame framework. A custom engine built off of MonoGame is being developed to handle the usual engine-ish bits (file I/O, drawing, user inputs, networking) as well to facilitate the game mechanics and logic.
Currently only a solo project.
Engine Custom game engine extension using MonoGame as the heavy-lifter.
Essence Actual MonoGame-derived Game class and current location for all game mechanics.
EssenceTools Sets of tools for creating and maintaining game content external to the MonoGame pipeline.
The initial project was written in C# using the XNA Game Studio 4.0 framework. Since the XNA framework is no longer being developed and supported, there is no reason to stay on that platform and MonoGame is the community driven replacement for XNA, thus the conversion and having to recreate many of the components to fit the MonoGame-way.
Since the initial project was created during a college semester and for a class, the design of the code was not very clean or efficient. The goal of the class was to create a minimum viable project. This project intends to create a stable engine that can be used to make a better and more expansive game in a cleaner, more efficient process with overall better code and design.
