I'm a novelist. Interested in writing my own games, I'm also an amateur cartoonist. So this is where I'm coming from with my interest in game design. I used to write small pixelated games in BBC BASIC on an Archimedes BBC Micro emulator. After that I learned a bit of Logic in high school and got me a 98% in the algebra exam. Because I was able to learn it from books on high school certificate level. After that I moved away from maths and computers, spent more time learning filmmaking (4 years) got a degree in creative writing. And now my novel. But I'd like to get into game design and I've decided to attempt to learn Actionscript, Unity and Liberty BASIC. Because they are about my skill level at the moment. And I just want to get some ideas down and start to make them into something I can see. Unity is the main one I'm interested in (yes I know it's not a language.) Does anyone out there with some experience have any advice for a not-great programmer, but motivated guy with an aptitude for design, good work ethic and a great imagination?
