A Look Back At My First Proper Game – C# Guitar Hero Clone

So, those of you who read my last post Diary of an Irish Student Game Developer you will know that I am currently building a portfolio website to frame some of my past and current game development projects like College Projects – C++ OpenGL & OGRE 3D, as in 5 months time I will be seeking a 6 month internship in the Games Industry.


So I’ve been looking though my first year college projects to find something to put in from first year and I came across my Guitar hero clone which I called Rock Revolt. It was my first proper game I made besides the countless strings of text based dungeon games I made for a year before coming to college, and the usual tick tac toe projects given in the first week of college. It was written in C# with .NET. The basic premise  for the project was to create a game with music in it and it was meant to teach the user musical notes. I thought that was pretty lame so I said I would make a guitar hero clone. There were also other requirements such as XML highscore database, reading the notes for the song from a file and stuff like that.
