Starting to create a simple game for Android - Day 0

Thumb war in Iraq

I’ve been stewing over a new game concept and have decide to log ideas, challenges, and progress on here.

The idea is pretty simple: Thumb War for Android

The primary challenges I see of creating this beast will be:

  1. game input - multi-touch with ability to track which user is touching the screen.
  2. game engine - I don’t know of any good base game engines out there that will give me a head start on this project. The few I’ve seen are probably too big for me needs.
  3. art work and sound - I’ll probably need to get some help on this one.
  4. time - I’m guessing I’ll only have a couple hours a week to spend, so there’s a chance this won’t get done till Android is dead.

More to come soon…
