I’m interested in game development but I’m not quite sure what languages I have to learn to begin as a developer. Also, is game developing like game designing? I’m not quite sure which path is the way forward.
Could someone clear all this for me?
Thanks in advance.
Look into unity
developement is going to be lots of math/geometry/physics
Well if you do use Unity, Unity uses C# to create games, but it supports other languages too. C# and C++ are both similar, so if you have experience with C++, you should be able to understand C# concepts in game making within Unity, and the language is simpler.
But I’d mainly learn C++ since other game engines use it and it’s one of the most used languages in game development. Also, Codecademy teaches the language!
Also: Unity has lessons on their website that should help you out when beginning to use the software, so that’s nice too
I’m always mixing up unity and unreal!
Can’t really go wrong I suppose!
(CSS and HTML to give the website a look, like on transformice)
Here’s a game I made on the HTML canvas (move with A and D and space to shoot).
Hope this helps
Thanks for the advice! Your game was great!
