  1. Before I ask my questions, I should give some info on my background.  I'm a Senior in High School I'm in AP Computer Science A (Java based) I take Digital Interactive Media, which gave me extensive experience with Photoshop and editing programs So, I want to make games. But how? Like what would be some pointers to push me in the right direction? Is Java beneficial to the industry? I really have no prior experience other than making a couple tutorial games with game maker back in 6th grade, haha.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!     
  2. Hey guys, if I'm trying to develop a game, what software should be used? Also, is programming a need to know?
  3. So I've always wanted to work in the video game industry, but I have no clue what jobs there are. I'm 15 years old and have no experience with programming at all. I just have a couple questions: 1. What different kinds of jobs are there in the industry? I'm trying programming and I have good experience with photoshop. 2. I plan on majoring in computer science once i get into college, can that be applied to other jobs as well if I can't make it? 3. If I tried becoming an indie dev, how much would software cost? 4. How big is programming in the industry? I'm sorry if I sound a little out there, I just don't know where to start, any help would be greatful!

  4. New to game development; Where do I start?

    Oh, and when the term programming is used in game development, what parts of an engine actually use the code you create?
  5. New to game development; Where do I start?

    Is it possible to learn java for a fundamental of programming and then move on to another more complex language? And also, what languages do UDK and Unity base off of?
  6. New to game development; Where do I start?

    Thanks for all the replys! The class I'm taking teaches Java, but after I learn a language, how can it be applied to developing a game? Like, does it get used as a backbone in an engine, or could you make a game completely off of language?

    Thank you! [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img] So, would you recommend that I just go learn C++ first? and when should I begin to use engines at that point?

  9. So, I'm kinda new to game developing, also, I'm new to programming and everything in general, so I don't really know how to start learning. I'm currently in high school, and I'm about to take my first computer science class this year, but I want to learn beforehand so that I can get a better understanding. Eventually I want to develop games, but where should I start? Should I start by learning a language first? If so, what? Or using a game engine like UDK or Unity? If someone could please help me I would be thankful!! [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img] -- John Ryan
