I’ve learned a new couple of things the last few days, including how to create new functions, and I wanted to implement what I’ve learned into a new version of Treasure of Algarath. This new version (v0.1.2) includes a brand new main menu, credits and a nice little license. Also, the first chapter has been finished and there is some new math to calculate some values. If you’re interested in the new version of Treasure of Algarath, then click here to download it. The source code of the game is also included in the package.
What to expect from future releases:
- Vectors and complex algorithms
- Items and an inventory
- Some randomness here and there
- Maybe a critter, who knows
Note that this project is being used purely to learn. There are no intentions to ever release it as a product.
I’m still studying C++ on a daily basis and just wanted to show off some new stuff I wrote in the last couple of days. First of all, I worked some more on the Treasure of Algarath code and implemented the ability for the player to select a gender, which manipulates the output text in the story. There is also some more story and formulas that determine the amount of bandits and followers deaths. If you’re interested in the new version, then click here to download it.
Aside from this, I used some new (very basic) knowledge to build a little program that asks for your first and surname. It then uses this information to determine the first and last character of the name, shows what will happen if you change the first character, and calculates the exact middle character and shows this character and its position to the user.

Today I’ve been screwing around with the C++ code that I’ve learned in the last couple of days. I wrote the beginning of a text-adventure game, Treasure of Algarath, that works like a console program. This game puts you in the shoes of a young but powerful leader who must guide his or her followers to incredible wealth.
This “game” is still very basic and it can be over in less than 10 seconds. I will ask you to not judge it as it is now, but just see it as something I worked on for a short time and wanted to show to the outside world.
