Achievements tutorial

Thu, 2nd December 2021

One last tutorial for 2021 has been created! This one focuses on creating an in-game achievements system, like those found on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam. As PlayStation has trophies, and both Xbox and Steam have 'Achievements' we'll be calling our system 'Medals'. The tutorial will lead the user through how to implement these Medals, display an alert on screen, list them in-game, and also detail how to optionally sync them online using SDL Net.

The tutorial consists of 6 parts (including the two optional networking parts) and can be found on the tutorials page, or by following the link below:

The tutorial source code is also available to purchase from itch.io, from the following page:

Binary downloads (for x86 Linux and Windows) for the game itself can also be found on itch.io at the following page:
