Ever wanted to make a game? Have you asked yourself should you learn to program code or use a game development program? Have you been involved in the game making process and want to help others in achieving their goals? Or are you a gamer who just wants to learn a little more about game making or want your voice heard? If you answered yes to even just one of these questions you are in the right place.
Making a game by yourself is not easy. Graphics/Sprites, Level Design, Programming/Scripting/Event Handling, etc. can take a lot of time. Getting the controls to feel intuitive and responsive can be tough if you are the only one testing your game. As a programmer/developer you tend to play your game over and over, eventually everything becomes second nature, resulting in the inability to be objective for player interaction and how easy the controls are for beginners.
Other complications can pop up as well that could be handled easier with a team or some collaboration. Different points of view can help us see things in a different light and inadvertently provide ideas you wouldn’t of had otherwise. Not all of us can be lucky enough to grow up with a bunch of friends willing to join our team and help create games. Collaboration solutions have grown within this day and age to the point that we can work together over great distances and in other countries.
Another problem you’ll have to face is money. Either you have it or don’t. Most of us simply cannot afford the professional software and other resources need to make our games. As a result, we’ll mostly be focused on free and inexpensive software for any budget type.
