How hard is it to make games?

Postby bob_the_unicorn » Thu Aug 20, 2009 10:04 am

Is it hard to make video games? I mean, I guess it must be time consuming considering that it takes so long for them to be released. How long does it take to make a simple game like JemQuest. Don't get me wrong, just because it's simple dosn't mean it isn't fun. But i'm still curious? Could anyone do it or do you need some special skill?

Well, I doubt anyone could do it. I don't think game maker or rpg make count. I think if you write them from scratch it would be a lot of work.

Everyone has the potential to program games, but few have the interest. Most people prefer to play them then make them.

If really want to make games, then you need to learn to program. I'd recommend something easy like java.

I'm sure it would involve a lot of math. Think about it, you've got plane velocity, wind, etc. all that math to be done in 3d space.

I'm glad I'm not a developer. Math scares me...

Math really isn't all that bad (once you understand it).
