What’s this website about?
I’m going to teach you how to develop a game!
I’ll post a tutorial at least once a week. In each tutorial you’ll get information on how to create your own game(s) from scratch.
Yes, from scratch! No experience needed!
If you’re able to use a mouse in the way it was meant to be used, you’re on the right track.
We’ll be working with graphic programs, music programs and game development programs.
Most of them free, some of them require pulling your credit card, but I will always mention if the programs are free, if there are trial versions and what the limitations are and of course if they are paid versions.
As far as images are concerned: we’ll be working with Inkscape. Inkscape is a free and powerful design tool to create all kinds of vector graphics. I’ll teach you the basics and let you see how to get started.
Music: we will take a look at Mixtikl, a software tool with which anyone can create music, even if you don’t have any music background whatsoever.
We will also look at how to create sound effects with a simple and free online tool BFXR. Monsters, gunshots, power-ups, beeps, etc.
Then we have Ableton Live: this is a very powerful music sequencer and digital audio workstation for creating and producing music. We’ll be working with this software as well.
We will also use FL Studio, music software that will get you up and running in no time.
You can find some examples of my background music right here.
Last but not least, we’ll be putting things together in Construct 2 and you’ll be creating your first simple game. Construct 2 is a kind of game engine in which you don’t have to write any code. So no Java, no C+, no Swift…
I hope you will follow along with these series. It’s going to be a lot of work for me but I hope you’ll enjoy following them as much as I enjoy creating them!
