So on YouTube I follow the 8-Bit Guy, and he is currently making a video game for DOS. After watching the video he put out today, I really want to try my hand at making a small DOS game. Issue is, I can't find many resources on DOS. The only video's I found on YouTube that labeled themselves as "tutorials" for DOS games were all for text based games, and I want to make a game with visuals.

And yes, for testing and playing, I have DOSbox.

So back to my question: Is there any good online resource for programming in DOS?

Hey harrykane, as I am getting back to DOS game programming after a loong time, I searched for tutorials and various docs. There used to be heaps of them and you can still find many online. Browse these links, you will find plenty :-)
