In Topic: Getting into game development (Books, courses, etc)

21 January 2013 - 11:09 AM

A book I highly recommend is the Indie Game Development Survival Guide by David Michael. It's more aimed at planning, management, recruiting and funding than technical stuff, but it definitely belongs on any game developer's bookshelf.

In Topic: What coding do you do outside of video games?

Currently I'm also working on Android utility apps. In the past I have worked with Delphi a lot.

In Topic: Best Tool/ Game Engine for developing android games?

For making money, I would go for free apps with paid bonus content or other forms of in-app purchasing. A nice example is Sector Strike, a scrolling shooter. You earn money for upgrades in the game, but you can also buy in-game cash. Later on, the game becomes quite challenging and you can expect to play the same level 20 or more times to collect enough cash for a vital upgrade. Unless you're very patient, it becomes very tempting to spend some money!

In Topic: Activities or Layouts?

I think activities are better. If you use one activity and then load different layouts, your source code will become a mess. It's better to keep all functionality of a single screen in a single activity or your project will becode very confusing.

In Topic: server space for mobile game

if you don't need a realtime connection, an easy and cheap option is a PHP/MySQL server.
