  1. Where Do I Start?

    Sorry I didn't say this at first, I wasn't thinking. I am 17 and I live in Wayne, New Jersey. I would like to develop games rather than just a job in the industry.
  2. Where Do I Start?

    I respect everyone already involved in the gaming industry and I don't want to sound ignorant in anything I say! I just want advice, and am thankful for everyone who is willing to lend some.
  3. Where Do I Start?

    I appreciate all of the replies and I will most definitely make use of all of it. Ever since I was a kid I wanted to make a game, just something that everyone could enjoy. But, it was only recently that I looked at this dream as more than just a thought. I had an idea for a game and I just felt like "wow... people will like this, I know it!" I really want to make it a reality, I've been writing about it, drawing concept art. Of course, I'm still in high school and no little to none about the process of the creation of games. When Cup Head came out I watched tons of videos on the Moldenhauer brothers and they didn't have much expertise in the field either, they just wanted to make a game. If I am remembering correctly, I believe one of them did construction prior to their game launching. So it's just that thought of "well if they can do it why can't I?" I love art, although I am not good at drawing. I am slowly learning both hand-drawn and digital drawing. However, I also want to learn to program things and have a hands on approach in creating. I know it's very ignorant of me to say "I'm gonna create a game of the year game as my first game!" but that's not what I'm trying to say at all and I hope it doesn't come off as that. That is my end goal, and I know I need experience and years under my belt before I can even think on a grand scale, but I just want to know what path to go down to start to get to my end goal. I haven't even began to learn to code, to program, to be honest I don't even know If I'm using the right terms! But, just thinking of concepts and writing it down is just so much fun to me I don't wanna stop, I wanna keep creating it further and further.
  4. Where Do I Start?

    If I am an aspiring game developer, where do I start? I know that's kind of a broad topic, but I just don't know where I should focus my attention. Should I learn some sort of coding? If so, what specifically should I learn. This is a completely different world for me so I have no idea where to attack first. If there are books or videos that I could read I would appreciate that also.
  5. Hi! Ever since I was a kid I was always fascinated by games, I believe we all were and still are. There was a certain mystique while playing a game, something that helped us all in someway. I'll never forget playing the original super Mario bros and then going to super Mario 64 and wanting to collect all the stars just to see Yoshi! This is something I want to replicate, I want to make a game that people will enjoy. I know absolutely nothing about game design and I don't want to come off as ignorant when I say I want to make a large open world game. I understand it may be an insane amount of work, possibly unrealistic/impossible for a small team. But that's what I want to know, if anyone could be real with me and tell me the realistic amount of time, people, and money I would need to make a large open world game. I understand that it being my first game is unrealistic but that's my end goal and I just want to know the specifics of it. I greatly appreciate anyone who gives any tips or information. I'm grateful that such a community exists.
