Making games takes a lot of time and effort - but with the tools available in 2015, it’s never been easier. DANIEL HINDES tells you everything you need to know to start thinking about games not as a player, but as a creator.
Interested in making a PC game? That’s cool. So am I! In fact, I started doing so a little over a year ago, with absolutely no experience whatsoever. If you’re in the same position and have no idea where to start, this is the guide for you. But don’t raise your expectations just yet: reading this won’t give you the power to make an entire game right away. It is a long, arduous and often tedious process. But you can do it. I believe in you.
What can you expect to do after reading this, then? You’ll have a starting point. You’ll be set up and ready to go with all the tools you need to begin. You’ll understand on a conceptual level all the elements that make up a basic game, and how they interact with one another. And you’ll get to this point without even having to write a single line of code.
