Regarding my new XNA project

In the beginning we create the fundamentals of the future!


I am currently in the making of a new game that is going under the working title "The Slaughter". I'm just in the beginning phase of this new game engine that will be based on James Silvias book "Building XNA 2. 0 Games A Practical Guide for Independent Game Development"(2008).

About the game

The story of the game is going to be like this: You are a hero! There are enemies that hate you! Slaughter them!
That's basicly all you need to know. And since it is built in a similar way to The Dishwasher(by James Silvia), this to will be a side scrolling 2D game with Epic gameplay! Altough I really suck at drawing so we'll see how that works out.

Anyway I did some concept art for the game and this image is of our hero that is so much hated by the enemies:




































Well that's it for now, I will post again when I've updated the project.

Sounds good! Keep us updated as to how it's going - it would make for an interesting blog.

Cool, XNA developers on GiantBomb.

I saw the picture before I read the text and I was like "... Silva?"

Then I read the post. I didn't know he had published a book. I might check it out. Dishwasher is fucking great.

Lol yeah I kind of felt like since I'm building the game with the engine in the book I might as well keep the stylish graphics that Silva uses.  Can't wait to play The dishwasher :D

HOLY SHYET! James Silvia already has a book? Dishwasher: Dead Samurai is EASILY my most anticipated 2D and indie game.

Well anyway, it's great to see a XNA developer here. I hope to make some games with it some day.
