2D, Online, Multiplayer, Board Games

Postby denizen » Tue Aug 07, 2018 5:16 am

Over the course of three weeks in my spare time, I've ported 40% of my game (from javascript and server side java beans) to Libgdx with a server backed by Postgres.

It seems that most libgdx games are physics based or make use of the 3D side of the gaming world. Honestly, those games bore me. I enjoy slow paced strategy games.

My game is called Grand Strategy. It's an online only multiplayer version of the board game Risk. The old web version had thousands of people playing at one time.

Are there any similar projects out there?

Any chess clients and servers? Or have any other board games been written in Libgdx?

This is what my game looks like so far. I've only spent about 20 minutes of coding on the actual game screen.

Libgdx makes things so easy. It's almost too easy. Sometimes I think to myself when I'm writing the libgdx version of my game:

"There's gotta be some kind of trick. How can this library make game development this easy?"

I have like 1/2 of the lines of the code as my old swing java version. And 1/10 of the code of the html and javascript version.

After one more week: the game is almost playable:

Very interesting, I will try this game if will be out the libgdx version. :)

Currently I'm working on a historical turn based (grand?) strategy game. I hope the release will be on summer in the next year.

Believe it or not after three months of development, the game is actually playable!

I welcome anyone who would like to play Risk online to give it a try.

The Windows and Linux clients are downloadable here:
