I've been a member of this forum for a while and not really posted anything as I just like to browse and see what others were doing/asking etc.
However I have now decided that it's time that I should maybe start asking my own questions.
Like 1000's of other gamer's I too want to make a game, I'm not talking Call of Duty level game, but something small and fun that I can play and possibly share with others if I think it's any good. Now this motion has been sat in the back of my mind for about 10 years and I think now is a good a time as any to give it a go.
I've had a search for a similar thread but can't find what I'm looking for, which is:
Where do I go from here?
But I'm not sure what to do after that?
Do I sit down with a pad and paper and brain storm?
Do I just dive straight into coding if so, where's the best place to start?
Is there a rough guide of which order to work on different areas, eg.
1. brain storm,
2. build level,
3. add character + movement?
Any help links and advise would be great.
If you have gotten this far thank you for reading, and I appreciate any feedback and pointers you may provide.
