  1. Great, I wish you the best of luck!
  2. Looking To Interact With Other Beginners

    Awesome, TJ just created a site for us beginners to get together and collaborate. Check us out! http://gamedev4beginners.webs.com/
  3. you could give this a read http://www.gamedev.net/page/resources/_/technical/game-programming/the-guide-to-implementing-2d-platformers-r2936 . For each section of the forums, there's usually a "Resources" tab with articles explaining a few things.If anyone would like to add anything else, go for it. P.S. Vector Math experience will be necessary 
  4. Looking To Interact With Other Beginners

    perhaps we should create a hobbyist group and provide a link here for other viewers / readers?
  5. Looking To Interact With Other Beginners

    I guess thats a notion to use skype to talk to people here, I would definitely like to collaborate with fellow beginners as well. My skype name is FeedMeLeaks
  6. Looking To Interact With Other Beginners

    I'm somewhat familiar with C++ and C#, I have some experience in other languages as well. I guess I'll send you a message about collaboration and whatnot
  7. Peer Groups

    wow, that's a great start. Thanks JB, I just bookmarked those links and I'll be looking through them thouroughly
  8. Peer Groups

    Thanks, I'll continue looking through the classifieds for projects that suit my skill level.
  9. Peer Groups

    This may be the wrong place, but I was wondering where I could collaborate with other beginners or create a group of beginner developers. I'm currently trying to learn pygame but am open to just about anything that's not C/C++. If there are user groups here, could someone point them out to me?
  10. I would like to join a project to build on my current skill set. Nothing too ambitious
  11. C# Tutorials - For Unity

    As everyone else has recommended, I would go with Javascript in Unityscript to get accustomed to programming. The Walker Boys Studio has extensive information on Unity Development, you would just have to fix a few things to work with Unity 4. Give it a try http://walkerboystudio.com/html/unity_training___free__.html
  12. OpenGL Quality of a sprite based game

    There are games out there that have very high definition sprites, take a look at the sprites from Skullgirls and Shank for example.   http://download.xbox.com/content/images/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802584111db/1033/screenlg5.jpg   or   http://www.2d-x.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Shank-2010-03-03-16-49-14-29.png   Both games use 2D sprites
