I recently completed my junior year in computer science and I've been meaning to do a project on my own. Something that I can call my own masterpiece you know, apart from all the grueling school projects.
Of course, I'm interested in game developing and I would like to develop my game no matter how good or bad. I also want to increase my proficiency in coding while doing this, so basically I want to do everything by myself, except maybe the (necessary?) artwork.
I know that the most popular small/browser games are developed with Flash or Unity but I don't have any experience with them. I'm better equipped in Java, C and C++.
I've made some games with Java in the past but especially the GUI looks so funny (like its made in Paint), it doesn't have the slightest professional feel. I wish to make something more serious and I'm willing to spend a lot of time on it.
It feels like there are so many options and I'm kinda lost. I have some ideas about the game I want to make but I don't feel myself that proficient to just start translating those ideas to code right away. Can any of you guys point me in the right direction?
Sorry that I'm a bit wordy lol, happens when I get excited about stuff. Also please forgive me if I had any errors in my sentences, English is not my native language.
