Abstract

"Energy Crisis," a 3-D shooter, existed as a working prototype in C++ last semester. This semester it was converted to use the scripting language Lua (like World of Warcraft, Angry Birds, SimCity, and others) to handle movement, player abilities, and other existing functions integral to the game. In addition, entirely new scripts such as a player death scenario and a second enemy type are added. This makes it easier to modify the program with new characters.
