Hi all. I am new here. i have a graphic design background, i use corel x16 and photoshop and other programs. My son and i would like to start building / making a small video game. But we don't know what programs are available or what to start with. I have heard of Blender and C++, but don't know what's a good program for beginners. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks For Your Time.
Hi there, welcome aboard:
In answer too your question, I'd recommend starting with Gamemaker which is pretty much geared towards those seeking a soft entry into gamesdev. So really no need learning how too code or learn DCC (Digital Content Creation) workflows for now, cos everything is bundled in this one app. Also comes wiith it's own visual logic system (GML) just the first step creating fun interactive experiences. Anyway have a look, see what you think, perhaps even download the free trial if you like and test it for yourself.
