So I started building my first game a text RPG over the Christmas holidays in Python:
I've decided to switch over to C++ for various reasons. I'm looking for other complete beginners since I feel chatting and sharing what is learnt is the best way to learn. I've decided to become serious about making games and not just thinking about making games. I'm tired of coming up with ideas for the "ultimate project" and then realizing a reasons it can't be done. I just want to program game after game and work my way up. I'm not really much for voice chat but there's always the messaging system on gamedev.net, Steam, e-mail, Facebook, whatever works.
I don't believe there's any sort of chat section on Gamedev.net if anyone has any other suggestions for beginner friendly chat areas on the web, let me know. Thanks!
Also comments on my code and how it could have been improved would be greatly appreciated.
