You need to download Unity. It's a program that's free for personal use. Search "Unity" in google and download it. If you can get a programmer to help you or have some experience in C++ or C# you can make a game no problem with this program. It's a great one to use and one of the most popular

Unreal can be great to use too. Depending on the type of game that @CVB115 is building.

Do you know how much Unreal Engine costs? I'd love to check it out. I've heard great things about it but I haven't really checked it out yet. And I'm interested in the fact that your learning C++. I plan to also learn it too. I got a program called CLion I can use to get started and lots of books

Unreal Engine is 100% free.. The only thing you have to pay is royalties and marketplace items (if you chose to buy some). Unreal Engine had been used to create the most popular game in the world.. Fortnite. Yeah, C++ is very interesting, learned lots so far. Hopefully, we can teach other one day. I'll need help with PHP one day hahah :D

Do you buy books for learning code?

Yeah I usually get my books off of Amazon for coding. I recommend getting an extended book for all the extended details and also a quick scripting reference (some good ones are by a company called Apress) for understanding the syntax portion of it. Scripting references seem to help me understand the majority of the code better and then afterwords reading the bigger books to get more understanding. I will check out unreal engine. I didn't know it was also free like Unity as well. Might be a fun project to mess around with learning C++

Any books you recommend? I currently own two coding books, HTML/CSS and JavaScript & jQuery by Jon Duckett.

Try out some Unreal/Unity development courses on Udemy, you may be interested in those.

I recommend any Apress quick scripting references. Also the Bible series of programming books as well as the Missing Manual series of programming books. All of those seem to be great books. I learned a lot from them. I wouldn't know CSS to this day if I hadn't read up on "CSS the Missing Manual" and currently I've been reading "PHP 7 quick scripting reference". Helps a lot. Other good books for C++ you might want to check out is "C++ standard library quick reference" and "C++ quick syntax Reference". If you already have bigger books on it those 2 would lend a hand in fully understanding how it works

You can also make games with the RPG Maker series if you're into that kind of game. I used to be very talented when i had the RPGMaker 2003 in my hands.

I remember that it was around US$50-60 on Steam the VX version, Enterbrain is an awesome company.

Ooo cool cool! I’ve heard of it but never actually tried it. I might give it a try.

I was using GameMaker for sometime, then stopped but thinking I should get back into it. I paid about $60 I think...?

What's awesome on RPGMaker is that you can use Ruby to program your game engines all by yourself or not use it at all and build up with simple algorithms. Also you can draw your own sprite set and put in your own animation. It was really fun to make one.

I have an IDE for Ruby called RubyMine. I might have to check out RPG maker one day when I'm trying to learn Ruby on Rails. Would be great practice. Nice tip

i've made couple of games in rpg maker for school use since if i can do those projects they will up my scores on design technology and alot of people really enjoyed it so maybe i'll make some more.

usually i take around 2 hours or 6 hours o a quick game but the creative ones needs like a month to make a really fun mechanics and designs.

later on like a mont i'll learn music producing and animating so sh me luck then i'll just learn coding for unity.

I had a community back in 2009 that was about RPGMaking. We held a contest for alternatives endings for famous videogames.


You can check the other games alternate endings which has been uploaded in the channel. It's in spanish though.

Tell me if you liked them or not!

If you're interested in game development i can give you some interesting data. You can learn by doing simple games on Android too!
