Thank you :)

That helped me a lot. I think I will finish reading on C++ and then go to game programming from there. Text based game would be nice.

Hello everyone, I am learning C++ (reading books right now), and I will be going to school majoring in Computer Science, to learn more programming, but at the moment, I want to make a small basic game in C++.

I've looked around, and I heard isometric games are the easiest to start off with, so I think I want to take that approach (unless it isn't the easiest to start with). Now I am having trouble finding an engine that is "beginner friendly", and I can use to create my first game. I was looking around, and I couldn't find any isometric game engines, that are free. As a beginner, I don't want to pay for a game engine, since I don't know a lot about C++ yet.

Again, I am reading books, and tutorials to help increase my C++ knowledge, but I do want to make a small free game, that I can share online, and stuff like that. It's my first game, so I don't plan on making any money from the game.

Anyways... If anyone can offer some knowledge on what engine I should use, then please inform me. Also, if there are any source codes I can learn from, then please tell me about those as well. And if anyone knows where I can find some pixel assets, or game assets (characters, objects, etc.) for free, please tell me.

GAMES I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE:

Simulation (Sims, Tycoon Games, Etc.)
RPG (Final Fantasy, etc.)
Platform Games
Shooters


Like gsamour, I'd like ro start with what you actyally want to do. I see your above goals are to make games, but would it be to decide the game mechanics, or to develop the parts of a game yoursrlf?

As for the simplest game; no it is not an isometric game. I's simpler. With less graphics. None, pergaps.
Maybe a few text inputs. Integers. And an interesting output.

Pergaps "guess a number" would be good, or a short text adventure?
If you were good at using the console, you could do tetris in it, or maybe a roguelike.
But i advice to start without graphics. They add steepness to the learning curve...


You have no idea how happy it makes me that you can quote :) Care to say anything else...? Haha.


Lol sorry, I was on this site from my phone, and I clicked reply, and it just replied the quotes :P

But I want to make a basic game, to learn the basics of C++ game programming. Right now I am reading C++ from the GROUND UP, and learning some C++, but I also want to learn the game programming side of C++. So perhaps a small basic game to learn the ropes of C++.
