First post so be gentle.
I am a junior seeking a Comp Sci major and was looking into making a mobile game. I wanted to use this for my thesis project next year, and possibly a way to pay back college loans. I do know how to make android apps since I have done some for a class.
My idea is to make a shuffle board game using my own physics engine in C++. Obviously this is a huge undertaking, but I think it will look pretty good on my resume.
I need help understanding how to connect my C++ engine to an android application. Should I code the whole app in C++, or how do I use the Android SDK to import this?
How would I go about making graphics for the game? Any good programs? I might have this covered since YouTube is a good starting point; just looking for some suggestions. This is my weakest point since I am not heavily invested in graphic design, but I have dabbled in some photoshop before.
Since I want to use c++ for the engine, would this be pretty easy to port over to iOS?
Also, would I rather make a physics or game engine in this circumstance? And what would be my first step.
Thanks for any help!
