Learn how to create an entire game from scratch with Kodu! This 4-part video will teach you how to make a Geometry Wars style twin-stick shooter. Kodu is only $5 on the indie games channel on Xbox live.
In this part we’ll learn about land tools, and setting up basic character controls.
In this part we’ll add walls, some enemies, AI, a path for a wisp. We learn how to use pages, and mess up the programming with a misplaced “random” tile.
In this part we’ll program a 60 sec clock on an invisible rock, add music, and bump some enemies.
In this final part we’ll add some lights, and put the finishing touches on our game. We learn how to add some text with a keyboard, add glyphs, and mention land types.
You can download the “Generic Wars Tutorial” game from the Kodu servers. Also look for my advanced version called “Generic Wars Infinity.”
