I have been a gamer since the days of Qbert, Pong, and Centipede when the most advanced controller was a stick and a single red button. Even as I began learning coding the gaming industry seemed out of reach. Looking at the games that are on the market today, they seem so complex and difficult to create. They are. With so many moving parts, logic, graphics, etc., it could take months to years to develop a decent game.
What I have learned over the years on my journey, it all starts with one step. One line of code. One moving part. Each step you take you get closer to your goal. This is my first step into my new journey as a Game Developer:
This makes Pong look like COD, but it’s my first step onto this new platform. I have been working with this for only a few hours, with weeks of intense work ahead of me. Im excited and driven to make this the start of an amazing journey. I look forward to making mistakes, learning new concepts, creating fun games, and sharing this journey every step of the way.
