    TicTacToe v.1 - Test and Feedback.

    It is working. I would like to say some things but you already mentioned them in known issues. So good luck.

    Web developer to Game Programmer

    Going to unity3D can help you. That game engine allows you to create full 3D games. And if you want free learning material then here's a gift for you http://answers.unity...-of-tutori.html http://answers.unity...xtures-mod.html Lists containing links to almost everthing you would need for self learning the game engine. There is a big unity community out there that can help you. http://forum.unity3d.com/ You need time, internet connection and will to make games. If that game engine seems a pretty big thing then you can try your hand at python. It is an easier programming language compared to C++ and there is book freely available "Invent your own computer games with python". The books teaches python as needed to make games. It can take some time but everything does. Best of luck.

    Logic Game

    If you haven't tried any programming language but want to make GUI easily then you can try Visual Basic. It is very easy to make GUI in VB. For using VB you can download Visual Studio 2010 express edition. It is free. Then there is Microsoft's MSDN library which contains a lot of material for VB. There is even a tutorial about how to make a maze game in MSDN library. Do all design programs have a logic funtion[/QUOTE]What does that mean? All programming languages have enough methods to make games. You need to use special libraries. If you don't want to use Visual Basic then you can use Python also. It is very easy for a begineer to learn and there is good book available on internet "Invent your own computer Games with Python". That book can also help you. But I would suggest that you try VB before python. Making GUI is easier in Visual Studio. Good day and enjoy coding
  4. Unity wouldn't limit your options. You can make a 2D game in unity. There is actually a tutorial on unity's website regarding creating a complete 2D game. A complete tutorial. Unity supports scripts in C# so while making the game you will be able to learn C# also. And you will be able to convert the 2D into 3D if you ever decided to. Making your engine isn't something I would suggest unless you have good amount of time, good programming skills and will to stick to it.

    Creating a game with programming

    C++ is good. But making a game with it will take time. Much higher than the game engines Working with C++ gives you more control as compared to a game engine. You have to decide whether you want control of a game that you can make in a longer time or lesser control of a game that you can make in much shorter time. The difference in the control is not that great for a beginner game programmer

    Creating a game with programming

    Try out python. It is a very easy programming language, much easier than C and C#. Also there is a free pdf available for it "invent your own computer games with python" online. The book makes it possible to learn python as well as make small games while learning. You know Visual Basic well? I worked with VB2010 and made some small games. You can also try that out. There is a game tutorial available on MSDN library for making a simple maze in VB. If you have the complete visual studio then there is a sample tetris type game made in it. You can look up that. By "just programming" I hope that you don't mean that you won't use anything else. Because if that is true then you will miss out on the greatest opportunity. Game engines. I recently found out about game engines and am using Unity3D game engine. It is great. I can make games easily in it. Of course it will take some time and learning but there are lot of tutorials available online. Look up on internet about these 3 options. After that if there are questions just ask. Enjoy Happy Game Development
  7. Python is a good choice. Much easier than C++ to learn and use. Who said that it will take time to make games? Big games like World of Warcraft may take time but small games you can make in lesser time. If you are using python to learn programming then I would say that you use the book "invent your own computer games with python". It is good learning material and if you keep at it you will learn both python as well as make some games. Enjoy
  8. So you are starting and want to make a command & conquer clone. Great. If you can keep at it then you may be able to do this. Your main requirement is being cross-platform? Making a game of that size with the three you mentioned will take a lot of time. Why not try some game engine? I am also starting with 3D games and am using Unity3D engine. It has a lot of tutorials present.
