Question about Game Development for kids

30 May 2013 - 04:47 PM

My 8 year old son is interested in learning to making games but I'm not sure as to what tools/programs I should get for him that won't be overwhelming and will be fun for him to use. I'm doing some searching right now to see what I come up with but will like any advice and suggestions I can get to help make sure I get him on the right path. I appreciate any help you all can give me.


Any beginner Windows Store tutorials?

11 May 2013 - 04:00 PM

I was wondering if anyone knows of any good Windows Store tutorials that goes into detail on making a game with DirectX and doesn't assume the user has any knowledge of DirectX. So far I only found the ones by Microsoft which expect the user has knowledge of DirectX and don't go into any good detail as to what is going on in the program. I appreciate any help I can get.


What Framework/Engine for Windows Store/WP8

09 May 2013 - 04:54 PM

I was wondering what is the suggested framework/engine for creating games for Windows Store/WP8 that is also able to port to other devices as well. I want to try to find something that uses C++ which I have looked at Cocos2D-X and have been unsuccessful in getting their beta to work and haven't got any feedback yet on their forums. Is there something just as equally as good for C++? C# is also another option which right now I'm waiting for Synapse Gaming to release their next version of their SunBurn engine as it will be platform independent. Anyways, I'd like to hear what suggestions you all might have and will appreciate any feedback.


Flowcharts

02 May 2013 - 11:47 PM

I was wondering if anyone knows of any good free flowchart software. I did a little bit of searching but haven't found any yet so thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has any recommendations. I apologize if this isn't the right forum to post this but figure it will be as creating flowcharts is a part of game design.


Where to begin

21 March 2013 - 09:47 AM

I was wondering what should I use to make games an engine or a library? I'm still fairly new to programming due to never having a lot of spare time between work and school. Right now my friends and I are planning on using Unity to make mobile games as I'm the only one that has some programming knowledge. So would that be the best tool for us to use for starting out or will it be be better to find a library that targets android, iOS, windows phone, and windows rt. In case it helps I have taken some courses in C++ and have learned some C# on my own. I appreciate any advice you all can give me that can help us get started.
