GSoC Project: A New Adventure
Greetings to all!
My name is Szabolcs Orbán, also known as belphegorr on IRC, I come from Romania (Transylvania more specifically) and I am one of the students who got a chance to work on the game.
I will be working on a new campaign for Hedgewars. At the moment, the only options for a player eager to play against the computer offline are quick game and some (training) missions. What I will try to achieve are introducing support for interrelated missions (campaigns) and creating an introductory campaign that would also teach newcomers how to play.
A result of my work would be that performance/decisions made on a mission will be able to affect the behavior of future levels, thus allowing the creation of somewhat more complex stories, with multiple endings, surprises and nigh infinite drama!
I'd like to thanks the developers for giving me the chance to improve the game and mikade for mentoring my work! I'd also like to apologize in advance to all the mentors I will be bugging as I chew my way through the source code!
