#4950975 Help! Being a game programmer

Posted by Fallenrat on 20 June 2012 - 08:44 AM

C++ is a dieing language. Even Unreal is abandoning it. C# is the newer one.

I have wrote an article on starting game development, it explains each game engine and has links to each ones tutorials, the Top 5 starter game engines so if your interested
go to http://niverse.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/5-best-ways-to-start-in-game-development/

Lastly is you love C++ and have to stay with it http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/topic/42855-creating-a-game-in-c/


PS. C++ stands for C and ++ in programming means +1 so C++ = C+1 aka C version 2 lol

#4949506 UDK or Unity? The best game engine for beginners?

Posted by Fallenrat on 15 June 2012 - 05:48 AM

I think Unity is best as there are massive amounts of tutorials ranging from Tornado Twins which is complete beginner no programming history, to Design 3 Scripting tutorials. UDK has little to no tutorials for beginners and it a dieing C++ language. C# and Java and UnityScript are way more user friendly, also drag-and-drop in Unity works very well and is easy to learn.
