I'm New Here........

Postby DeadManReedeeemed » Mon Jul 16, 2012 7:59 am

Hey, everyone. I'm sort of new here, so please someone help me out if you can.... :oops:

....so, I've been thinking about creating Christian fighting games, shooting games, and action RPGs. However, I have one little problem.....All I have is Flash and the only probable thing I can do with that is make soundless cartoons. I may remember how to make buttons, but......

Moreover, I have no video game coding skills or the money to purchase the program(s) needed, my website coding skills need work, and I have ADHD so if you know what that is it is hard for me to finish what I started (like the Christian comic book I was working on.....)

Can someone help me? I may plan on going to Pratt Institute, or some other college after I graduate from The Art Institute of New York City. But I'm kinda lost right now. :|

I have some skills with GarageBand on my MacBook so I can make music.... and I have Photoshop, too. I made avatars for Christ Centered Gamer. And maybe there is more I can do....

Well, well, fancy meeting you here. :P

Welcome to CDN.

If you want to start with some game development, GameMaker is a great place to start. Good general platform to make all sorts of games and no coding experience needed (but it will teach you some essentials, too). Oh, and the free version is perfectly fine and they have a version for Mac.

But the free version doesn't have everything does it? :|

Nope, stuff like particles are not included, but it has most of the functionality and is perfectly fine for many applications.

Hmmmmm......like what? :|

Also, is it true I can use it to make games for PSP?

And can I make Christian fighting games with it?

You can make all sorts of games with it; and I'm not sure if you can make PSP games with it. Systems like the PSP like keeping their stuff under lock and key and it can take a significant amount of money to get a dev kit.

For Mortal Combat/Street Fighters, you might want to look for a specialized engine that will be built towards fighting games.

But I thought that Game Maker allowed people to make games that ends up as Playstation Minis. That's what I read..... :o

Nope, PC and Mac. They have a version that can do mobile and web games, however.

Okay, downloaded it. So, where do I start? I know I have to have it planned out, but how do I use this thing? (It's the Lite version)

Ha, that was so funny!

That is especially for me. I always go on to make questions from much harder places when i could have simply googled it first and find the answer right away. I just dont seem to integrate to internet time.

DOUBLE POSTING ALERT

DOUBLE POSTING ALERT


Anyway, is it possible to upload .aif files here? You know, since this forum allows you to post your stuff?


If so, how do I do it? I use GarageBand sometimes, so I can show you some music if I can.

DMR, let the mods handle the double posting.

As for hosting, you'll have to get your own hosting solution. The simplest way is using dropbox.

To DeadmanRedeemed:

Take the time to learn a bit of coding. Trust me, it opens up your possibilities and frees up a lot of limitations that come from only knowing one aspect of game dev. A jack of all trades is favourable in this situation.

Also art. it's good to know a bit of art.


Good luck,
