If you are interested in making video games and have no idea as for where to start from, keep reading. By the end of this article you will have a round view of how a certain game is made and or how you can begin making games on your own. This article is a part of my personal performance report since I am also in the learning phase of game development. I did my research on various methods of game development, made a few small demo games which were pretty lame and now I am moving forward to develop better games.
2. Game development Software and the Internet of course.
Let’s cover every thing point by point.
2. Game Development Software.
This is where most of the confusion starts. Why? It’s because there are just way too many different kinds of game development IDEs out there, This tend to confuse a mere beginner for what is right for them and what is easy. Let me clear the confusion out for you. There is no such thing as easy in Game Development. Easy would be to make a lame game with little to no objective in it. But is that what you really want to make in the long run? Of course for a beginner it is okay to make some lame game but if you really want to learn making some cool games you have to be prepared for brain block puzzles and learn to code. This is absolute necessity. If you cannot code, you atleast need somebody to guide you through when it hits you. My advice is to stick with Unity. It has the capablity to handle 2D games as well now. It’s way too extensive and you can easily find tutorials for it.
