hope you have fun.
Hi guys and welcome to this article , it will be helping you to get further step or look on the game design world which may really interest you but you cant run before you walk and you cant walk before you stand.
so what is game design all about?
Good question but if i want to go deep in it , it may take about 10 articles so i will make it short and easy , game design is a huge endless world , with so much imagination and fun on doing it , where you create a world full of stuff that can interact with each other , there are mainly roles for creating a game and it is :
now i will be explaining each one of those and what they do
Coder is the most important job on making a game were a coder give information and command to the object or the behaviour to do a specific thing … for example : lets say we got a cube which is only a static object by using code you need to tell everything, first you need to tell it to go to the object (which is the cube) to move its transform and from its transform to its position and from position to its place and that way you can do it.
well modeler is also important where you do the graphic thing , the better the modeler , the better the graphic, the graphic is also important which makes the player enjoy the game by looking to it scene.
i think you have heard battlefield 3 which is an awsome game you know why because its graphic , it has some really good graphics in it.
so how can i make a game
OK so your thinking “oh my god this is so amazing i will make assassin creed or call of duty” , but that ain’t easy i don’t mean to put your hopes down but that’s not going to happen too fast you need to go with some steps to understand some game concepts and how you can do it.
i really recommend that you use some easy softwares for a start , which i used too and its called :
scratch is a software that you can make some really basic basic game with it and its also easy to do it, just drag blocks and put it to the character and you have a game.
now when your done from scratch try using :
first person shooter creator
now that’s an amazing free software i love it so much that it is really easy to use than scratch but you will not learn allot from it except building some scenes.
you only have to do is to drags object to the scene and test it and then you have a really good fps 3d game.
have search on google to find it.
p.s : you can also buy fps creator x10 which is really amazing.
so the concept of stencyl works is like scratch but has so much more information and has alot of stuff in it , and you can do more effective things like pong game and shooter and rpg but its not going to be easy , so give it a search in google and you willl find it.
now for the hard ones
ok so now your done from these softwares its time to find a game engine, i use a specific engine called unity 3d which i liked alot but i used more than them like udk , and cry engine but the unity 3d is more organised and not that hard also you can build scenes easily.
so here is the name of the game engine if you want to see them :
- cry engine
but keep in mind my tutorials will be only on unity 3d so if this article gets published i will try my best to do the new article and it will be called :
by for now and see you later
