Hello,

This is my first postsmile.png !

Well,

I've programmed a lot in C++, apps, programs...
And I got interested in Game Development, and I learned Allegro and some SDL.
I have maked 6 games: ( 2D )
-Cat Invaders ( pretty much like sapace invaders)
-Remake of PacMan
-Gravity
-Shot 'N Win!
-Pong ( Remake )
-Lost ( Current Developing )

I have experience in 2D Games, and, lots of time.
They are good games, you know, they are little games.

But I've heard about game engine, but don't really get it.

I think I'm looking for a GUI, in where you create 3D models and then you program.

Thank You!

It sounds like you have a decent grasp of the general game development process. Before you jump straight into 3d games, I would suggest that you check out OpenGL. This allows you to do 3d graphics. There are some good tutorials online.

After you get that, you can try making a 2d game with 3d graphics. This means that all the logic is the same, but how you render it is different.

Then, all you need to do is add another dimension. You might need to do some refreshing on basic trigonometry and a bit of vector math. For your first game, if you keep it simple enough, you won't need either of these, but as you progress you will need more and more geometry and math skills.

Good luck!
