[Help] Getting into game programing

08 January 2013 - 10:04 AM

Hello everyone, I recently joined gamedev.net, my name is Rokas, I'm 16years old. I am willing to study C++ or any other programming science thats required to do game programming.

To start off my adventure I wanted to ask a few questions:

1) I watch Bucky (youtube it: thenewboston) on youtube and his c++ tutorials, they are simple, how good you would rate his tutorials? Are they worth watching? I think yes, but maybe you can offer better learning materials to start off?

2) Where to find tutorials on how to build my own game engine? (Since obviously if i want to become a good programmer - I would much better prefer to do it myself!) Where I can find more information about functions that are required to make games (most popular ones, etc) Ofc, I know If statement is the most important in making games, but i mean what else i need? Is there any simple websites, that could provide me superb useful info?

3) How long the process of learning should take, before I can build my very first 2D indie rpg-type game? I mean, sure I'm not a genious, but post how long you took, to become "good" and "confident" to create games from scratch (engine, etc.)

Thanks and sorry for Imperfect English. My main language isn't English :)
