Top 5 Game Development Software /  Game Nacho Game Development Software is one of the most crucial elements for Game Developers. It’s also known as a Game Engine. A Game Engine is a tool that eliminates a lot of the technical aspects of making a game. The Game Engine allows you to just focus on building your game. Although not all games require game engines, and some developers even create their own, it is a very popular choice as it provides all the basics plus a lot of time-saving tools to build your game. Unity3d: This is hands down one of the greatest game engines. Game Maker is a neat little tool to mess around with if you’re just starting game development. So what game engines do you use?

Getting Started in Android Game Development | Robert Green's DIY If you're interested in developing a game for the Android platform, there is a lot you need to know. I'm the developer of Light Racer, Light Racer 3D, Antigen, Deadly Chambers and Wixel, which are currently available on the Android Market. I've also been involved with the development of about 5 other games for Android and iOS and am co-author of Beginning Android Games 2nd Edition. I've developed games before but the original Light Racer was my first Android application and I learned quite a bit about writing Android games that I'd like to share with everyone. I even wrote an online book detailing the development of Light Racer 3D, which is full of how-tos and useful code snippets. Android is a Java-based environment. Get the SDK The first step in getting started with the Android platform is to get the Android SDK (Software Development Kit). Learn the application architecture Learn the activity lifecycle The activity lifecycle is managed by the Android OS. The main loop 3D or 2D?

Beginners Games Programming So you want to be a games developer? One of the only things better than playing games in my opinion is creating them! Whilst it can be hard work learning to write computer games, it is also incredibly rewarding. How far you go obviously depends on your skills and motivation. You can write games just as a hobby or you can work full time in the games industry. This page explores the options and gives you lots of advice based on my experience of working in the industry and latterly as lecturer teaching games programming. Is a job in the games industry for me? Here are a few quick questions to see if you are right to work in games development: Do you love playing games? Also some definite reasons not to enter games: For the money - games developers earn a reasonable salary but it is no better than in other industries. Which role is right for me? First of all you need to determine if your desire is to design game play, create the graphics or to program games. Are there many jobs available?

I want to be a game developer... now what? With people looking to get into game development the same questions come up over and over, so I’ve opted to put my thoughts on the subject in one place and to compile a list of resources for new developers. Those questions? “I want to learn game programming, what language should I use?” “Should I use an engine, or create my own?” “What library/tools should I use"?” “Now what?” I will try to address all of these questions and more in the following post. For those of you that like skipping ahead to the last page in a novel, these links are for you! … the C++ question. Let me get the 800lb gorilla out of the way first of all. Alright, back to the whole C++ question. Don’t get me wrong, I totally understand why you want to go with C++, I’m just as guilty. Again, these are just my opinions ( and those of the vast majority of people that went down this road themselves! Now, if you did in fact make the decision to go ahead with C++, for the love of all that is holy, DO NOT USE DevC++. Do something.
