how do i make 2d pixel games from scratch

Recommended Posts

my goal is to create a small game like super mario just a platformer game, but small, and i thought if i do the game all with coding and not use unity or other legendary game engines, creating it from scratch would improve my programming skills even though i don't know any programming languages, but i will learn one and then will do a game from scratch and i will make all the assets for the game

this way i will no longer be a beginner and i will advance in making more small games or just challenge myself

you asked what my goal is, if you mean my main goal, i want to be a platform developer and i have a idea for making a 3d battle game but i wont think about this until i call myself a game developer

I think you can learn C# and OpenGL together. For example you can learn how "for" statement works. You can draw 100 squares instead of writing 100 numbers in the console. OpenGL is just API. I highly recommend to download my example GUI WinForms + OpenGL 3.1 and port examples from this book to C# OpenGL: 

It is excellent book for beginners. Authors explain basics of computer graphics very good. I do not know a book where shaders was explained so good.
