Card games are good, too. You can start to mess around with simple AI and grow it as you get better. Also, you can start with text-based then add in graphics.

My first game was a text based RPG too, it is very good for starting. What language will you be using?

Mine was QBasic in DOS. It is very good for starting because you can compile into a .exe file and distribute by itself! DL QBasic

I'd like to see your first version when you've finished it!

Whoa!!!! Thanks Nightwalk, I looked for Qbasic 4.5 for practically years before I just gave up, and made my qb programs distributed with my qb exec.

Text-based games are a great place to start off. Good luck.


+1. I was thinking of using one as the "goal project" when (if) I ever get around to writing a C++ tutorial.

Yeah QBasic 4.5 is really good for compiling games into .exe! have you played the games Gorilla and Nibbles? They are Classic Games, they come with QBasic, and are really cool!! and the souce code is very nice.

i want to use C to write a simple full screen DOS game with simple pixel graphics and some colors, how would i get graphics working? so I can draw things on the screen. Which libraries do i need? Can i use C or C++ or both?

I recently got a copy of Delphi. It is really good, just like VB only the .exe files are self-relient and run on any windows platform without runtimes! :) but slightly bigger .exe than vb

The best way to get started is to start right away without even jotting stuff down. Yes, many will argue my point, but I find that the best stuff I created when I was a beginner was done without any planning. You just have to think it through and stuff programming (for the simple stuff, that is).

As for text RPG? I think they are a great place to start off. They keep your options open to anything. Tic Tac Toe is also a good console game to create as it introduces arrays and simple text input. Good luck!
