Steps on How to Become a game Developer

35 posts in this topic

yes, in part 7. that doesn't mean learning is ended, we will still have game designing parts too. no I think that good, most of the feedbacks are about "when we are going to learn how to become a game developer?" and they are right. I think this 6 parts , that are about 45 mins are enough for a quick start.

 

and please specify the problem that you have with that sentence , maybe I can explain to you in other ways.

thnx for feedback.

Morning all!

I don't think anyone has purposely been rude or negative, just tried to point out how you can improve your videos and teaching ability.

 

Maybe not deliberately rude or negative, but some if it came across that way I think. It is difficult in writing to always play the ball and not the man.

 

As I said above, try to keep criticism to something specific: this content is incorrect; that lighting is poor; too long; too short.

 

If you hate it utterly, easy, don't engage.

now the BASIC parts get over (6 parts) and From part 7 we are going trough engine. let me not say which game engine.

 

If each video is about 15 minutes long, then I'd say spending 6 videos talking about "basics" is much, much too long.  I guarantee you that you will lose your audience quickly.

 

I'd say that you can cover all the basics in 1 - 2 videos.  Any more than that without getting into specifics will be unwatchable.  

 

Even if you will be concentrating on one area of development, like programming, there is way too much ground to cover if you're moving at such a pace.  Especially if you want to get into actually writing a game engine... then you should be getting into stuff that involves actual code by the 3rd or 4th video.

I understand, but this might be a good point to seriously reconsider whether you want to continue on the same path, or start over differently.  I can almost guarantee you that no one will site through 60 minutes of "basic" stuff before they get to what they're actually there for.  Also, if you plan to cover so much stuff, including making an actual game engine, then you're talking a lot of videos.  Redoing the early ones wouldnt be that hard because you wouldnt be remaking 6 videos... you'd be making maybe 2.

 

I'll leave it at that, but maybe others can back me up here.

it is less, it is about 40,45 min.

and remember that this series is for the begginers, so it is essential. and you think that was easy. these 6 videos took about 6 months of work. don't judge it quickly.

to always play the ball and not the man.

 

That expression, when not on the basketball court or soccer pitch, is easily misconstrued. :)

Closed. For Beginners isn't the place to post your tutorials or video guides (it's for beginners to ask questions), nor is it your blog.
