Newbie game developer

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

i am a newbie game developer, i've finished a unity 2D study and i'm studying Unity 3D and Virtual Reality. I like so much classic video games and i 've done a game like "space invaders"  (at least the first levels). 

I'm visiting this forum to find answers to my problems, good programming advices and assets (if it's legal in this forum)

Thank you!

      Hi all,
      I have written a nice(ish) looking game of solitaire in Windows Forms, using VB.NET and Visual Studio 2015. It allows the player to play the game, and if their score is in the top 10, it saves the username and score o a leaderboard (saved in a text file so it is non-volatile). My next goal is to let the user know if the hand they are dealt is playable, but I'm not sure on the most efficient way of achieving this. I'm working on time complexity over space complexity! It's a simple game to code, but not an easy one to find the solution.
      Do you know of any algorithms that may achieve this goal that I would be able to look at?

      Hello,  I am researcher from University of Phoenix. I have received permission from this site to post about permission to recruit subjects for participation in a study entitled Cyber Threats to Online Gaming and Education: A Delphi Study. The purpose of the study is to find out what current and future measures might be taken to eliminate or reduce organizational risks when using MMORPGs while still allowing organizations to use this powerful tool.
       I need a minimum of  10, maximum of 20 participants/game developers to contribute to my study. I need the expert opinion of game developers on what they think needs to be done to make MMORPG's secure. The game developers do not need to be MMORPG game developers, just game developers. The study will be completely anonymous, no identifying information will be used in the study. The participants will have to sign a permission slip and an informed consent slip which I will be the only one that will have access to. If anyone is interested in this PLEASE send me a message ASAP as time is of the essence. The study should not take up much of your time each day (maybe 10 15 mins max depending on you) and should not last too long ( maybe a week or two depending on how long it takes all participants to send me their data). As stated above the study will be a Delphi study, which means that all participants will answer a series of questions on a questionnaire for three rounds, those answers will then be sent to me, I will analyze the answers/data and send out the next round of questions and repeat the process until round three is finished.  I will start out with 5 of the 20 participants to conduct a pilot study, this will be used to construct the questionnaire that all of the participants will answer. once the Pilot study is finished the actual study will start. all communication for the study will be via email of SurveyMonkey website.

      Thank you for your time

      A big game project contains a lot of runtime data like
      List of all world objects List of all players Game states Viewport ... I have to pass a lot of these data to most of my classes. So I have a huge list of parameters in every constructor.
      What's the best practice to avoid this mass of parameters? Is it recommended to summarize all data to one class (something like "GameData") and pass this container to all methods and classes? Is there a common name for this container in game development? I'm a bit worried, because if I pass this class to all classes and methods, I get something like a global variable.
      Thanks a lot for your advice!

      Hey I am writing a research paper on why games are considered art.  I need a couple of interviews with game designers to get their perspective.  Anyone know some designers that would be available to take 5 or 6 questions?

      This blog was originally posted on Level Up Translation's blog. As the developer or publisher of a title that took a considerable amount of time and money to develop, the localization of your game is clearly a point you should not neglect. Localization strategies differ from one platform to another though. Here are a few tips to help you decide what languages to localize your Steam game into.
      7 languages cover 65% of Steam users
      Your game is going to hit Steam and you don't even know where to start with its localization? Don't worry, we've got you covered! Here are the 7 languages (including English) you should absolutely consider localizing your game into: 1 - Russian 10.88% of Steam users are Russian. They make up the second largest gaming population on Steam after the US. Russian players also own a whopping 8,66% of the total games owned on Steam, and PC is by far their favourite gaming platform. Don't think twice, localize your game in Russian! 2 - German 4.93% of Steam users are German and they account for 6.23% of the games owned on the platform (31.87 per user on average, against 20.09 for Russian players). Germany is also the first European country in terms of game revenue, so localizing your game in German is not only a safe bet, it's a must. 3 - Brazilian Portuguese The share of Steam users from Brazil keeps on increasing. 4.72% of Steam users are Brazilian and they account for 3.55% of the total games owned on the platform. Brazil is the most important market in South America and English proficiency is relatively low. Still hesitating to localize your game in Brazilian Portuguese? Think again! 4 - French 3.61% of Steam users are from France and they account for 3.49% of the games owned. Localizing your title in French also gives you access to Quebec as well as French-speaking countries in North and West Africa. However, if you are specifically targeting French-speaking gamers located in Canada, we do recommend that you localize your game into Quebecois as well. 5 - Chinese Chinese gamers mostly play on PC (57% of the Chinese gaming population) and with 4.86% of Steam users coming from China, your game definitely has to be localized for that market. Chinese users own relatively few games (2.46% of total games owned on Steam) but this is probably due to the relatively low number of games available in Chinese on the platform at the moment. Who said niche? If your game has the potential to find an audience in China, you know what to do next. 6. Spanish, but... Although "only" 1.43% of Steam users are from Spain, as much as about 6% of Steam users come from Spanish-speaking countries. Spanish is a pretty special case though. Should you decide to tackle the Latin American market (the second fastest growing region in terms of game revenues), we highly recommend that you go for specific locale versions. Localizing your game in the above 6 languages will have more than 35% of Steam users covered. Providing your game was developed in English (an additional 30%), this makes your game available to 65% of Steam users! Raise your hand if you would like to miss 65% of the Steam market! Anyone? No? Good... Other languages worth considering for Steam
      Italian Looking at the numbers, the Italian gaming market is far from its days of glory. However, one could hardly recommend to ignore the "I" in the traditional FIGS (French, Italian, German, Spanish). Not only has Italy a relatively low English proficiency, but choosing not to localize your title in Italian might expose you to negative criticism for not living up to the expectations of Italian gamers. Many consider the lack of Italian localization an eliminatory criteria for playing a game, and just like many French and Spanish players, Italian gamers tend to swiftly uninstall a game if it is not available in their native tongue. Polish, Ukrainian Given the share of Steam users speaking these two languages (respectively 9th and 11th population of Steam users), localizing your game in Polish and Ukrainian is a pretty smart move. They are also cheaper than French, German, Italian or Spanish, so if you have the budget, go for it! Turkish 2.04% of Steam users speak Turkish. For comparison, Swedish players represent 1.54% of Steam's audience. On the other hand, translating from English to Turkish takes nearly 50% longer than translating into FIGS. Turkish is therefore relatively expensive when it comes to localization, and we only recommend it if your budget can handle it.
