I would like to program games for online use, and so I'll probably choose Flash as my programming application, except for iPhone, where I'd like to learn to program native to iPhone (which could be super useful when the iTablet comes out). I have previous experience sending data from flash to mysql databases to save/retrieve information, so I feel this should make a good combination for a variety of game types.
Here's a short list of what I'm interested in programming:
- A game like Adventure for the Atari 2600, except instead of the Adventure mazes and dungeons, the game would use the characters settings, and quest from Tolkien's Tale of Beren and Luthien.
- A version fo StarFleet Deluxe that allows users to log on to a website to track the prograes of themselves against other user members of the fleet.
- A text adventure game like the old Zork! games, but based in a Harry Potter-like setting. Don't you think it appropriate for the HP games, which were books, to be text adventure games?
- An iPhone app. But I don't want to reveal the idea just yet. For now, I'm just learning the language. Hello world!
