YAPC - Yet Another Pong Clone
Welcome everyone, I bring to all of you... yet another pong clone!
I hope you guys enjoy this small game. It took me 10 years to finally finish my first game.
"What? 10 years?!" you ask in shock. Well yes, it was 10 years ago when I first felt the desire to make a video game... and then I never did because I had too big of an ambition and all my projects were crazy big for me to make alone, especially as my first project. Even after accepting that I had to start "small" I'd still come up with games too big for me. Turns out I didn't know what small actually meant.
But finally after many years of unfinished project after unfinished project, and about three years of listening to Chris DeLeon from Gamkedo talk about hobby gamedev, and more recently Tim Roswick from Gamedev Underground talking about starting with Pong and all the advice he gives out daily, I finally managed to finish my first game — heck, to finish a game.
Yes is not as polished as it could be, and yes the AI could be smarter, and yes there could be more game options, and yes there probably are many bugs that I didn't catch, but all that doesn't matter. I set out to make a complete game and that's what I did and I'm damn proud about it. Not Perfect but Complete. This was my mantra during development (which by the way lasted two rather than one month as projected and also took me an extra month and a half to finally post it).
I know, you just want the download links but first I'll take just three more lines to thank the Godot development team who made this great tool accessible to everyone and to the Godot community who's members are always very open and friendly. Thank you.
You can also checkout the source code at https://github.com/paolobb4/YAPC. Maybe it'll be of help to someone
I hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think of it.
In the mean time I've already started working on my next project. I hope I'll have it ready for you soon.
Have fun and good dev to all!
