Any game designers here? I heard people make a lot of money with games. How do people get an idea of what kind of games work and what kind of games do not work
To be a games designer first you must learn a launguage such as C++ which i reccomend.
Then you will probably want some sort of 3d graphics designer e.g blender / 3ds max / maya.
Then you will need a game engine e.g torque.
Thanks a lot. can we create games with python card? (i am learning python since its easier to learn to start with)
Cool, I might check this program out...
I actually bought this software it is awsome, whoever after you get use to it and know what everything does it's pretty easy. I do recommend this for anyone who wants to make a simple game or for teens as a gift.
tried making a game with game maker some years back out of curiousity. there are loads of open source games availble for gamemaker.
have fun making games... as for me - lots of time wasted hehe
that is great been mumbling about making a game for ages thought i was going down the "C" route etc
gamemaker downloading now
Well its been a month now using Gamemaker
2 titles would be finished if i could just get over last couple of bugs
Anyone reading this thread should give it a go, you see games in a new light.
Was watching Skate 2 the other day and you realise just how much effort goes into the character and board, let alone anything else.
Eh, just a heads up. You may be too late for making good money in solo game making. Maybe a decade or more ago, solo game developers could do quite well on shareware, and even commercial games only had like teams of 20 devs. Today, those numbers are more multiplied by up to a 100. You can make great games solo, but the scope and the range you have available is somewhat limited. A lot of stuff requires a lot more manpower to develop. And the money is certainly harder to come by, given what the state of the art has become.
I have been using Game Maker 7.0 PRO for about 4 months now. I love it and it is very easy. There is two choices with Game Maker. You can use the drag and drop function or the GML (Game Maker Language) which is more advanced but not really hard.
