#5016836 Not sure where to start

Thanks for the replies, guys!

 

All the languages in the world wont help you make a game, it you dont know how to use them correctly. Study up on the fundamentals of game developing. Its basically a load of different methods of doing certain things which are required in games: movement, collision, physics, database, ext... Very usefull stuff. I must admitt its tempting to skip over this stuff but it is extremely useful.

 

I've already studied the theoretical part of games, but I agree with you, it's very useful!

 

What I did when I first started out was to think of a few simple games I like (like pong or snake) and then write down the elements I like most.

 

For example instead of making a direct copy of snake or tetris you could have a snake which you can use to form shapes then when pressing a button have the snake drop down like a tetris block. Its not really about the complexity of games but more about having fun and creating unique gameplay. Which I personally think is most important.

 

With kind regards,
