It was an amazing 24 hours that I learned alot from. The Houghton game jam started at 1 o'clock due to weather on Saturday afternoon. That's when I started my game called "Fight Space". In 24 hours I made a full 3D game for the first time. I've done a lot of 3D stuff with Managed DirectX and XNA but I had never actually made a game in 3D.

So with that in mind, I set out to make my first 3D game in under 24 hours. I don't think it turned out to bad. All the textures, models, and code were done by me, so...

Code :


I know the code isn't very clean, but I did my best in my limited time.


Norm Nazaroff also used XNA for his game "Spatial Magic". The games aren't listed on yet but they will be released this week along with some follow up posts on the event.


I want to give thanks to people now.

First of all to Norm for getting the game jam up and going. It was a fantastic event and he put it all together fantastically.

Next I want to thank Reimers Tutorials. He does an amazing job explaining things, and has some amazing tutorials on XNA. With out these tutorials I might not have gotten as far as I did.

Finally, Ziggyware. There's always new articles and links all over this site. I got a lot of useful information from here.


Until my next post, cya around.
