    What's your opinion on story centric games?

    Personally, I think they're enjoyable to play, but watching someone else play one would bore the heck out of me.

    Then you still need to read that article. And/or read this one.

    new ideas for video games.

    This article tells you how to do that. That's unclear. Can you try saying it again with different words? Money IS a problem. Or are you saying you're wealthy? Because if you're wealthy, all you have to do is hire a game development company - preferably one in your country, where they speak your native language. And if you're wealthy, you can ignore the article I mentioned above.

    Sorry, bug, it doesn't work that way. Game ideas are not patentable. Read this article about intellectual property.

    What else does your game need?

    new ideas for video games.

    Sorry, bug. It doesn't work that way. Read this article, then start learning how to make games yourself.

    Clueless on what to do?

    1. You can make your games yourself, as physical games (board game, card game, paper RPG, etc.). That's a good way to go for non-programmer designers. The game's concept can then be demonstrated convincingly to potential partners. You'll need to figure out how to deal with people, given your autism. 2. I hope you can make good use of the time to get better at dealing with people. Going to another country can be eye-opening and also claustrophobic; like a wise man once said, "everywhere you go, there you are." Your surroundings may be different, but you're still you.
  8. Thanks! FAQ 10 talks a bit about the process, from the point of view of a producer of console games at Activision in the past. The indie process involves different concerns (funding, for starters).

    What are some of the things you like in games?

    Moving to appropriate forum.

    And what is that problem?
  11. Tom Sloper

    Is this game a 2d or a 3D game?

    Not a Game Design question. Moving to the appropriate forum.

    Does it work now, Phil? If not, what have you tried (besides posting here)?

    Books and articles on game dev

    Maybe something in this list will be useful for you.

    Standard Window Size and Tile Size for a 2D Game

    Moved to the correct forum.
  15. I forgot to mention acceleration/deceleration, and the way tires interact with various surfaces. And the physics of flight (airfoils, rigid wings versus flapping wings). All depending, of course, on what kind of games you might work on.
