Hello all

I was playing around with a home built Hackvision (https://nootropicdesign.com/hackvision/) and became enamored with the idea of making a game on it.

I soon noticed that developing a game on Arduino is quite slow due to the fact, that debugging is so difficult. So, I ported the TVout library to run on SFML (simple and fast media library). Now, I can develop and debug on Code::Blocks with GCC and MinGW, and then take the code to Arduino. When developing a game, this greatly simplifies the development process because I can step through code and see how variables and memory locations change (very handy for debugging bitshifting algorithms) .

Here are work-in-progress videos of the project

1. Hackvision Asteroids running on SFML on Windows:



2. A taste of whats to come:





3. OutRunduino work-in-progress playlist:

4. Work in progress log at Nootropic Design forum:

I won't say anything about when the game will be ready, or if and when I will publish source code (I eventually will).
If anyone is interested in contributing sound effects / music drop me a line.
