Hello, this is gonna sound weird, but Im 14 and into game designing ^_^.... Okay, I have two ideas, and Im trying to get started with them. I have a few problems though ^ o o (_) __ The first problem is, which one first? (all game info will be listed later) Second- Should I network them? Third- What FREE products should I use to make it (ogre 3d is just a graphics program, not a whole game engine) Fourth- How much of Blood, Gore, Cussin, Nudity, etc. Fifth- Should I post demos and screen shots here? (stupid question, I know) And for a fact, yes, I do know C++, so dont think because I havent gone college that I havent learned!!!! THE GAME IDEAS Well for the first... An RPG I once played called Vampires was really fun, and I was thinking about basing the game off of my character Serra, and her story. Its long, and would probably be best single player to me, but I want your honest to god truthful answer...] The second... I want to make a game about an emptied (sorry if spelled wrong, Im forgetting right now..) world, and the only person on it is a Girl/Boy, you decide. (I will make the chick big breasted and hot for the guys hehehe), and spirits inhabit the world (not sure where to go from there on the spirit thing). It will be scary, and I will most likely try to use a mod I have to write it as an XBOX game, so I can play it on xbox (And Ill send copy to everyone that helps me, so post your email). I like the whole scary idea, (the other one is actiony). Though, another question in mind for this one is, what color of hair, outfit, all that junk. In fact, just post a drawing of yours of what you think and it will help (any style). Thank you very much, Kitsune/ Silver bananna Cat

Nope, It's not weird. Tons of people on this site are younger than fourteen, (I'm fourteen and I do everything: design, programming, art, and music).

First - That's entirely at your discretion, but neither idea is very complete. You may want to start with a clone (Tetris, Pong, etc.) first.
Second - That depends on if you've designed a multiplayer mode and someone you know (or you) can program this.
Third - Well, you could try Blender3d for modeling, the Torque game engine for the programming, and some Sound editor for uh...sound editing. Pixia is a free bitmapping program for art.
Fourth - That's also at your discretion, we don't have enough information about your games to make a judgement, though I would just be moderate. Cussing's fine for an urban, tough character. But it's a HUGE no-no for narration, etc. Go easy on the nudity or you may lose your audience (unless it's lonely middle-aged guys), but if it's not hardcore nobody will care. Wizardry 8 had nude characters in the inventory screens and no one cared, but be sure the difference between nudity and pornography is there. Gore is really cool for realistic dismemberment, but too much is just annoying *cough*Soldier of Fortune 2....
Fifth - Post in the 'Your announcements' forum.

1. How about you start with Pong, Tetris, Breakout, or tic tac toe first.

2. No learn to make a game first.

3. There is Irrlicht 3d engine and Oger is a 3d engine ;)

4. Blood and gore are awsome but do a simple game first. Oh and don't get focused on nudity most companies like to avoid that.

5. Make a web site with ss's and demos of the game and give us a link ;)

Oh and yes I beleive you can know c++ at age 14 lol I started programming when I was 12 ;) I am now 18 :D.

Hope that answers all of your questions :D

Okay, like I said, I know how to program, and I most definetly know how to make games (Ive made tetris before, when I started this hobby ^_^), and I already got the Irrlicht engine, thanks to your help, thank you very much! Ill give you more information later when I got more....hehe...and good tip on nudity, but I wasnt talking porn, Im not into that, only lonely hick losers are (wait a second, i live in colorado, I AM A HICK LOSER..not really) any who, thanks, and Ill go get hosted!! good thing I got dreamweaver X! Please put more input on this everyone!

-_-^

And also, if anyone here has fully developed a full game, please post here a website to look at, and learn hehe. I am a moderatly good artist by the way (anime is my absolute fav!)

No problem glad to help :D And good luck with learning. Irrlicht is a great engine. Very easy to use actually. However, it will take some time to learn to use it.

And if you can work in cussin and nudity into Tetris, that would be an interesting twist! Kind of like adding checking in golf - a long overdue addition to the game!

As far as Im aware theres no way to write an xbox game without the official development kit for professional setups. Its probably best to make it for the pc or the ps2 (using their linux dev kit).

Gentlemen, I am forty-five, following protocol where with a computer science class that I had dropped and was taking online where we had to read and respond to these forums, so here I am. I don't know programming, have extensive experience with probability, cognitive unification with the I Ching and a burgeoning martial artist at three years, Tai Chi and now integrating Shaolin White Crane essence, other chigong, Tai Chi classic sword, having had cultivated a way and now polishing a path. I have noticed that you have articulate abilities which is coming from the systematic approach to gameplay-those theories that is giving me the impetus to move forward, which is at where I figure I'll take on all three: Basic, Pascal and C/C++ and go for the "Tetris?" parameter, build my experience which has come from close to a couple a dozen scripts written in the vain that I had described above but of which was in the clouds where the big fish said "out of here," so I'll kick in a tv script, do all of that "a little at a time." I think that there should be some limit as to any form of communique, regarding vulgarity, nudity or violence, being that it should communicate a truth-progressive, rather that of a regressive self destruction, but then what is that? Maybe there is some truth to this nemesis? I can say from experience that there is a responsibility at a certain point, no matter what the truth actually is to be better, and I have had to uphold that rather I liked it or not, yet I am not a done deal. I like the provocative art, some hot action and shirk to any abuses.
That's my plug and I'll check in daily.

That was a confusing read. (The weird hyperlink I didn't see before...)

Cool stuff and welcome. I'm contemplating taking a Qigong class this fall with a friend.
