In Topic: Junior Dev Job Interview: Which shirt do you think would be best?

05 October 2016 - 01:29 AM

I always wear my suit for interviews but that's mostly because it's one of the only times I get to wear my suit (the others being weddings and funerals).


But as others have said the games industry is normally quite relaxed so as long as you look smart and neat you should be good.


Out of your options I would go for the plain black shirt. Being well presented goes a long way in any industry.

In Topic: Game Idea: can be done in one month?

28 November 2015 - 05:00 AM

Whether you can do it in a month or not is hard to say, it depends on a lot of factors.

Is this a month working full time? Or part time? Or a few hours a week?

Are you writing it from scratch or using existing software.

Are you doing all the artwork yourself? Do you have much digital art experience?

For the type of game it looks like you want to make you will spend most of the time on artwork I think. For the software side I would recommend you take a look at the Unity engine and have a look at Fungus (http://fungusgames.com) on the asset store. It's free and makes it very easy to make an interactive story type game.

Good luck.

In Topic: Game creation software for kids?

The ones you mentioned are all pretty good. I've heard good things about scratch. It might also be worth taking a look at some Lua based ones which can be quite easy to get into, like Gideros which recently became free to use, Love2D and Moai. These all allow easy building for ios I believe.

In Topic: NULL vs nullptr

06 December 2014 - 06:25 PM

I don't really see a reason not to use nullptr all the time even if for most cases it's not needed. Overloads aside, it's there and it makes it more obvious what the code is doing in my opinion.

You should check out -
cocos2d - http://www.cocos2d-x.org/
