This is the start of a series of small posts about my game development endeavors using Rust. I have been using Rust more and more in my free time projects but never used it in a larger project.
This will be my first larger project using Rust, and I will talk about my learnings here. So what I am making?
Going to make a simple “Match 3” game from scratch.
My goals for the final project result are
- Implement full game-flow (Menus, Options, Loading, Gameplay, Pause screen, etc.)
- Multiple levels
- Save game system
- Audio (Music and Sound Effects)
- Windows only
- fixed resolution
- D3D11 renderer
- using no external crates at runtime, besides winapi
Tools might be using some crates, but I want to keep the game itself free from external dependencies as much as possible.
