Game Creation Thread
auxien posted a topic in General BanterSo for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle. I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...) Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game. Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).
The Humble Indie Bundle -- Pay what you want (donate) for 5 sweet Indie games.
Guest posted a topic in General Banterhttps://www.humblebundle.com/ There's 8 days left to donate. It's cool because you can choose where your money goes to, whether it be EFF or all to the dudes that did Amnesia. You however have to pay above the average donation to get Bastion. The average right now is $7.86. I picked this up the other day and have just been absolutely hooked on Bastion. I've played Amnesia before but didn't finish it because I got too scared , Psychonauts is a classic from what I've heard but I know nothing about it, Limbo was cool, and Superbrothers is...interesting. Anyway, thought you lot might be interested in this deal.
