This blog is a development-journal of our open-source Android game Splot Attacks. The game was created for an independent study course (COSI 98b) at Brandeis University. In this blog, you can read about why we chose the Android platform, how we conceptualized the game, what game development framework we chose, and the entire developmental process of Splot Attacks. Ultimately, we hope that this journal can serve as an introduction to writing Android games for amateur programmers.

Here is a short video demonstrating our progress so far:

    How much longer will you be developing this project and will you be making additional posts?

    • We will be developing this project indefinitely. This project is still in its early stages right now, more features and levels will be added; which also means that we will indeed be making additional posts.
