THE MOST IMPORTANT EXPERIENCE THAT I MADE AS A BEGINNER

Time

When I started game development there were so many things that were new to me. I drew a lot when I was younger. Then I had a phase where I started to program. And after a while, I had a phase where I loved it to write stories.

And last but not least after my graduation I started to listening music. Yes, that’s not a joke. I think I was 17 or 18 years old when I started to listen some music permanently. I never listen to music before, permanently.

By the way what I want to tell you with all this information about me is, when I combined all these activities then I realized that I could start with game development.

With games, you can tell stories in many ways but not only with words, music, pictures or something else. A combination of all of it gives me the possibility to create something. It gives me the possibility to create some art.

What I wanna do is to create some art that is interactive. Don’t misunderstand me, I want to create games that entertain you in any way. I want to catch your whole feelings. I want to create games that touch your innermost.

So as I said before I want to start with some easy game ideas. I want to know how to combine all the areas, programming, composing, designing and even drawing, how to tell stories in an interactive way and so on.

TIME IS EVERYWHERE

The first thing what I learned was that you can create any game that you want. But the more elaborate your idea is, the more time you need to finish it.

To create a game is like to create an artwork. You have to create all of these little things and at the end, there will be a big picture combined by all of these little things.

All the great things that exist have only come about because many little things make a big difference.

Here is an example.

The drawing of a character took not so much time. But after I finished it, I made a digital copy and the next step was to animate that character. And this part took a lot of time because the animation has to be very smooth.

And this was the most time waster that I had. I learned a lot and in the end, it looked so awesome.

So my first tip for you is, if you want to create an awesome game, then don’t take a look at the clock. Take all of you concentration and put it on your creative work.

And if you do this, then I promise you, you will develop and finish your game idea definitely.

Hope you enjoyed it, and thanks for reading.
