    Whats the Best Software for Game Development

    Hi, as a web developer, you could also look for one of the Javascript and HTML5 game frameworks. For small games, HTML5/Javascript is really surprisingly fast nowadays. A friend of mine who is a veteran game developer recommends Pixi JS. I have never tried it personally but it looks very impressive. I personally use Game Maker but I am not sure I would recommend it to you due to its peculiar programming language. However, if you are willing to learn a custom programming language that you probably won't use anywhere else, one good side of Game Maker is that it lets you write nice 2D games without having to learn a huge amount of things. In a way, it's the best engine I found that lets you code games how they were developed 30 years ago and that is a very good thing to get started in my opinion. You can move to Unity or even to c/c++ later when you are more experienced. Oh, I was forgetting... if you wanted to learn how to make c/c++ games one great resource is handmade hero. Look it up on youtube ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck

    Lawyer Simulator

    Hi Kommissar, Does the book you are referring to talk specifically about how to create menus and buttons? Does it show you how to install a development environment and start programming? I am asking this because c# is just a language and so a book about it does not necessarily explain how to do what you want to do. Generally speaking, if you want to learn programming, reading a book and grasping the concepts is not enough. You have to sit in front of the computer and write some programs, understand them and change them until you have learnt to the level that you need. My advice is to google up some tutorials ( there should be many about c# ), find a ( probably free ) development environment for your computer, install it and just get started. The way it can work is that if you do not understand a specific bit of code you may look somewhere else or ask in a forum for an explanation. I like the idea of the Lawyer simulator by the way. Bear in mind that it may take a while to program it, especially if you are a beginner. Another option is that you focus on the game design and team with a programmer to build it. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Hi all, I am yawmoo and I am new to the game development scene. I have a lot of experience in the software industry and I always wanted to create my own game. I started doing it in my spare time and I got to the point where I have something that I find cool, even if very small. One issue I get is, I find it cool but the people I personally know who are gamers tend to dismiss it because it's nothing like the current triple A title. I mean, it's just the work of a single programmer with limited art skills, a sound effect generator and not much spare time. What is a good way to get in touch with the community so that they start playing your game and give you real feedback? How do people do it?
