I'm new to this forum, and read some interesting stickies (thx starstutter).
A few years ago I started to develope some skills in game development.
I don't mean coding, I'm talking about Sound, art, sprites, 3d modeling, animating 2d-3d, webdesign...
The programs I learned with are goldwave, sound pro, Photoshop, 3Ds max, Flash, Dreamweaver, After effect..
So as you can see I had made a step by step goals to reache higher and higher, from easy to difficult. I took my time enjoying to learn step by step how to create from game sounds to 3d animation..
To be honest it's been a while with 3d animation, last time I tried it again my character was walking backwards but my modeling skills are still good \\^\\^
I've been in two development mods, both sadly died because coder went MIA, and the other one lack of communication between the dev's.. One was a game based on bleach the other on naruto.
After that I thought I'm going to learn how to code, so I downloaded UDK development kit
And followed a tutorial on how to create a Level. After I completed that tutorial I found a tutorial how to create a pause menu... I SOOOOO felt in love with coding!!!! Most people who loves playing video games will never realize what I realized! a ''simple'' pauze menu is NOT so simple! seriously it was easier to create a level . But the satisfaction of finishing just that is undescribable!
So I had a ''taste'' of what coding is, in the end I didn't complete my project, not because of difficulties or lack of interest but back then I had trouble maintaining my own life let alone my project .
I also encountered some coding in creating a website from scratch and building a phpbb3 forum.
Now that you know a little of my past experiences I can tell you my new goal..
I'd like to make a MMORPG... just kidding probably someone already took a gun out
No, I would love to be able to set my first goal into something like Ninja Saga(facebook app)
Ofcourse I'm not planning to make the exact copy or even better, i'm not even planning to put it online or whatever, I would like in the end to have build a story based fighting game.
So is it good to use flash builder for this, or am I completly wrong
What software do you suggest? (what's the price?)
Is my goal impossible in your opinion (why?)
Did I bore you (I'm sorry )
Things to know:
- I wouldn't mind to start off with something like punch and kick game
as long as the things I learn can push me towards my goal..
- I'm very patient when it comes to learning something new.
- I don't give up easily
- And I'm definitly not taking this lightly
Somethimes all it takes is a little push to the right direction..
wich i'm hoping to get from here
