What kind of game do you wish to develop?

With your skill-set, there are two types of games you should try to develop:

 

1. Tic Tac Toe - Website using PHP and cookies.

or:

2. Pong using Javascript and HTML5 Canvas.

 

If you are going with 2, I suggest you learn how to use JavaScript really well. Doing games requires more knowledge than web-forms.

Here is a very simple link to something almost game-like: http://sixrevisions.com/html/bouncing-a-ball-around-with-html5-and-javascript/

 

Here is a more complicated link with user input: http://cssdeck.com/labs/ping-pong-game-tutorial-with-html5-canvas-and-sounds

 

Disclosure, I've never used these specific link, I just searched google for "HTML5 pong" and verified that the explanations seem legit.

 

The one problem with canvas though, is that it works kinda slow on Androids. So don't expect your first games to be multi-platform. Also, HTML renderers on all mobile platforms are weak relative to native code. But since you allready know HTML, it will be an easy landing for you.

We are making a game engine for the web.  It still in early beta but is quite stable. (It is free and only takes a minute to register.)

It is completely based on web technologies (Javascript, jQuery, HTML, & WebGL).

 

If you are a beginner and want to show off your work quickly without needing them to download installer and plugins, you may want

to take a look at our engine.

 

This is a sample 3D scene created using our platform using only 41 lines of javascript.(use mouse to rotate scene.)

 

Here is a few promo videos:

I've been in that course and I can't recommend it. It wasn't very good.

I agree with that. I went through it just a couple of months ago. Way too many errors in the lessons, the problems, and the automated solution checker.

It runs fine in Chrome and Firefox browsers.

Have tested on Windows 8 tablet and it runs fine.

Have not tested it on Android devices. But since Chrome browser is quite compatible cross devices. 

I do not anticipate any issue if you stick with chrome.

 

Safari on iPad is another target that we will work on, but currently we are targeting IE 9- 10.

 

On your mobile device, you can always check to see if the following links work:

 

https://www.otakhi.com/public/otakhi/Scenes/Mayan%20Ruin

https://www.otakhi.com/public/otakhi/Scenes/Ruins%20Entrance

https://www.otakhi.com/public/otakhi/Scenes/Old%20House

https://www.otakhi.com/public/otakhi/Scenes/Palm%20Trees

 

if they work, most likely the editor works as well.

 

And this is what you do to create an app and publish it to a link for public access (like above):

 

(1) register at https://www.otakhi.com/otakhi/_vault/_signon.php?type=enroll

(2) Log in

(3) create a folder

(4) drag all the models you want to use from the repository into that folder.

(5) merge them in Condenser and save it as index.html to the same folder.

(5a) delete all the droplets that you acquired in step (4), since they are now merged into your index.html formation.

(6) create a favicon.png (roughly 80x80px in size) and put it in the same folder.

(7) right click the folder and select 'Make App'.  The folder is now being treated as a web site.

(8) right click the folder and select 'Publish...'.  Fill in required info in the dialog and click 'Publish'.

(9) Your work will appear in the repository listed as an App.

(10) share its embed URL and invite friends to visit.

 

Your application embed URL has the following structure:

https://www.otakhi.com/public/your_user_id/local_path_to_your_app_folder

If you know JavaScript, then I'd highly recommend JawsJS. It's really straightforward for 2D games. If you end up making a fair bit of money, or have $99 to spend, check out impactJS. I've never used it, but it seems to be the way to go for serious web game development.

 

EDIT: I didn't realise this, but you can develop iOS Games in JavaScript using impact as well! The more you know...

This scene, a virtual desktop, takes only 17 lines of javascript to make by reusing 3D meshes, materials, and lights ... most work went into object placement.
