    My new project~ Evolve

    Last August I got bored, so I decided to learn C++, I know random. But I decided to apply this to stuff I already know, Biology. Which is why I'm creating a game called evolve. This game is my attempt to make a game resembling evolution, and so far its been going pretty well. I have a prokaryote level up and working and a eukaryote level getting started, as well as beginning code for the multicellular level. The best part of this project it the fact that it's constantly evolving as I work on it. In fact I made a website for it, if you want to check it out the link is:

    Evolve - Home

    In fact here's a screenshot

    If you're interested in helping out I have some tasks that I could use some help out on. On a pro bono (a.k.a. no pay, just for fun) basis you can help me with coding, promotions/marketing, website design. And I would be happy to take any Ideas you have and incorporate them into the game.

    So check it out and tell me what you think.
    Just remember its a work in progress that will keep getting better.

    See, everything C++ people do ends up as a game

    Just kidding. Looks neat. I bet it would be a great thing to translate into SDL, as an initial SDL project, since it is 2D. This probably has a lot of educational potential, to state the very obvious, but the kids really are gonna want a fancier interface before they trust the authority of the thing
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Is "H20" supposed to be "H2O"?

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    the idea is awesome, but these symbols and the type of graphics and input is confusing and annoying :S
    Currently research OpenGL

    I second that. The console application really limits the scope of the game design.

    MilkyJoe, have you looked into Allegro for a game programming library? The library is easily portable to C++ and contains very simple functions you should have no trouble picking up on the fly.
