Great attitude man! I'm sorry if my comment came accross as being rough, but I just wanted to make people aware that free engines aren't always bad :) Anyways, good luck again on the project and hopefully you'll make alot of money xD

thanks for the advice I prefer having advice and having people suggest ideas over praise anyday it makes the game way better

Hey buddy,

Sounds like you've got a nice idea, but it also sounds like you're "all talk". The reason I say this is because you say you are a game designer and you use other "technical" programs. You say Unity and GameMaker use "no/lite coding", yet both have their own languages (G.M.L & UnityScript (practically JavaScript with its own added libraries) ). Unity also supports C# and Boo (A Python variation). So before you say you use more "technical" programs than some of the greatest free game engines, you should atleast read up on them.

I'm not trying to rant or burst any bubbles, but I'm tired of people who say they are going to produce this amazing idea, yet at the same time they pass around incorrect information on great free game making software and discourage others from making their dream because "Gamemaker is for kids" or "Unity doesn't use code".

Just read around and learn the facts then post, but good luck on your project man, and keep on coming up with ideas!

no i am really not sure what you said I told you im not good at pc the closest ive got to building a custom one is making a lego house when i was little
Fisty Mar 24, 2013 @ 9:53pm

Yes USA, but I am awake at night... My computer is all new stuff nothing older then 1 year... AMD FX-8350 8 core 4GHz (Overclocked to 5GHz on water cooling), 32GB 1866 RAM, and my 7870 Radeon HD GHz edition, Black edition Overclocked XFX (going to add a 2nd one I think since the 7980 is way too hot and loud for me) got a OCZ agility 128GB SSD (times two in RAID 0) I put the game (games) Im playing ATM on that drive if they need to load a lot but most of my games are on one of my 3TB drives I got 2 of them for games, media, and Torrents... I picked AMD because 1. Im a fanboy, and 2. BOTH the New XboX and PlayStation will have the AMD 8 core chip so games will be optimized of 8 core and people with Intel will be playing catch up... (Speed is not everything anymore)... I have so many games, but I keep downloading them cuz I want to see how they run... or I download old ones to have a little nostalgia....
Bowjo  [author] Mar 21, 2013 @ 1:22am 
do you live in america or something because when im awake your offline (im british)
Bowjo  [author] Mar 21, 2013 @ 1:21am 
Im embarrased to say what mine is other than I had to get someone to put a graphics card in because it would crash on minecraft.
Fisty Mar 20, 2013 @ 3:26pm 
LoL, im just the oppisate and people all think I can "Hack" or program... Im mainly hardware and not just computers... Just the other day I rewired the fish tank and my own WIFE was like "I didnt know you could do that.." I was like hun I am an electronics tech, if it has electricity goign though it I can fix it... LoL I never thought of it on the other side... So your PC isnt a custom monster like mine?
Bowjo  [author] Mar 20, 2013 @ 11:41am 
the thing I hate the most is that if your a game designer people think your good with pc specs but then the game designer is like "yeah im great at stuff like that" and then break the pc! Im not like them I know I dont know my pc specs from my circuit boards and im on it everyday I prefer to leave it to the pros and ill just mess with the kids lego instead.
Fisty Mar 20, 2013 @ 9:53am 
WoW I found a torrent of the studio one, even though its no coding you would still need to be able to draw and such... My dream of being some kind of big shot in the computer/electronics world is not gonna happen. The closest I get is doing computer repairs, upgrades, and custom builds from my home... I would enjoy doing that for the rest of my days but I don’t get steady customers... I blame it on the idiots that say they know computers. Same ones on YouTube who say building a computer is like adult Lego's but couldn't over clock or even find a jumper if their lives depended on it, these are the morons who let the Bios auto config and their RAM is running at half the speed it should and they don't know why their computer is bottleneckin If it sounds like I'm bitter it’s because I am, I get so close to living my dream and then fail. I think this is entirely too much Information but shit you were talking about hallucinating so I feel like I can rant a bit.
Bowjo  [author] Mar 19, 2013 @ 1:30am 
heres some websites I said I would give you just start from the top one and make your way down ok.

http://scratch.mit.edu/ no coding

http://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker/studio no coding

http://www.engine001.com/ no coding

http://unity3d.com/ some light coding

then theres some other technical ones im using.
Fisty Mar 18, 2013 @ 3:13pm 
that good shit huh?
Bowjo  [author] Mar 18, 2013 @ 1:25am 
updates when i release it not right now and I was halucinating (dont ask).
Fisty Mar 17, 2013 @ 10:14pm 
what does sheep have to do with spelling? and what updates are you talking about? Is there someone playing this game or are you posting updates on the first stages?
Bowjo  [author] Mar 17, 2013 @ 2:08am 
I cant spell at all can I...but some of the best inventors in the world (and game makers) had dislexia so couldn't spell that well the guy who made connect 4 had dislexia.
Bowjo  [author] Mar 17, 2013 @ 2:07am 
if you cant spell welll then have a dictionary at your side if your not sure of a word you can look in that now I need a quick break from making this game probably like a 10 min one because I swear I can here sheep...
Fisty Mar 15, 2013 @ 7:25pm 
My problem is I can not spell at all and I hear thats really bad for trying to code/run command lines. I want to do some hard core stuff, like running and coding things from an interface. Back in the day I used to run DOS with no problem (I still know a lot of commands) I hear the command line is really close to that. How would you make a game wihtout code? Use a sorce engein?
Bowjo  [author] Mar 15, 2013 @ 1:28am 
Illgive you websites to gamemakers that dont need coding if you want.
Bowjo  [author] Mar 15, 2013 @ 1:28am 
im not bored I like discussing stuff with people. I learnt to code and stuff on the internet I had A notebook which I jotted down stuff I started on the easier gamemakers first but they were to easy.Ive been working on games since I played crash bandicoot with drawing ideas and stuff.I played in order PS1 gameboy PS2 gamecube snes DS ps3 xbox xbox 360 and PC so yes I was a console gamer first.
Fisty Mar 14, 2013 @ 3:10pm 
How did you learn to code? How long have you been workign on games? were you a console gamer first? If your busy or get bored commenting back then feel free to stop I gab why too much online LoL
Bowjo  [author] Mar 14, 2013 @ 10:22am 
Ive worked on a handfull of things like a virtual cat AI and a tetris/pacman cross over but this is the biggest thing ive done so far Ive been wanting to do something like this before I even knew how to play on my PC so Ill go through with updating it and making it better untill I cant make it any better.
Fisty Mar 13, 2013 @ 9:26pm 
I'm 32 years old, I dont think Ill ever be able to do it... and the worst part is I wouldnt even know how to pitch a game if I did want to make one... what other work have you done? Ive beta tested only a handful for things from World of Warcraft to a few paid alpha/betas liek Arma3 but what im most proud of is my Wikipad this thing has never been relesed becuse of hardware issues so they skipped over the one I got and are going to sell the 7" version (I got the 10" one) and then make a whole NEW 10" at the end of the year, so I have a tablet that only a handfull of people actualy have... kind of cool... I like to gloat about it, but its never done anything cool for me liek getting me laid or paying my rent lol
Bowjo  [author] Mar 13, 2013 @ 1:36pm 
I know what you mean.
Fisty Mar 13, 2013 @ 12:29pm 
I really wish I knew ANYTHING about programing or developing... I got ideas for days for games that I never see on the market and I would think they would sell.... I would never trust anyone to do them becuse I have a certain vison and to let someone else do it, would be like letting another man screw my wife...

The problem these days is the lack of originality... BUT with things like kickstarter we are seeing these games that are original come to light that the companies would have never aproved or would have butchered for "Casual Gamers" I HATE what happens to good games these days for CG and I'm sick of them... they should stick to there consoules and GTFO of my PC games... (RANT OVER:)
Bowjo  [author] Mar 13, 2013 @ 10:15am 
dont worry theres no rush :)
Fisty Mar 13, 2013 @ 10:14am 
Ok thanks Ill do that later... no rush right? lol

if you want to know my group is bowjos clan with my profile picture as the logo
Bowjo  [author] Mar 13, 2013 @ 10:01am 
just ask...but beta will be a while send your email to wittygamestudios@hotmail.com and we will sort it out.
Fisty Mar 13, 2013 @ 9:53am 
I found this by mistake, I really want a game like this, what can I do to get into the beta if it ever happens?
Bowjo  [author] Mar 13, 2013 @ 8:53am 
there will be loads of ways to do things such as making a shelter finding a shelter or having no shelter and ive been watching alot of bear grylls lately so Ill add stuff he does on it. I was also thinking of boiling water to 'purifiy' it which me and the team thought would be cool and we will expand it untill there is no possible way to make it any better we would listen to ideas and stuff, I even thought of adding a way to craft a compass with cork and a needle. when I started this i didnt think we would have this many visitors (65 at time of typing) Its expanded more then we thought. Thank you !
Fisty Mar 12, 2013 @ 11:02pm 
I like the idea of this... some people play Minecraft and Arma just to survive and want to forgo the death matching and stuff, I wanted a survival sim that has no instructions and just drops me in the middle of nowhere. The ability to do almost ANYTHING so you can mess up, and mess up A LOT... like the ability to eat anything that you could chew IRL, and there has to be some sort of crafting system but nothing locked down like Mincraft. I bet it will be hard to make an physics engine that allows someone to make things that are not thought as the norm... like a trap... even though a pit trap has a basic design, there are many ways to go about building it, the term "many ways to skin a cat", totally works here since there are in fact many ways to skin an animal and many ways to kill said animal... how far are you going to go? Is it going to be ONE WAY to do things or are you going to put the thousands of ways to do each thing so you can rely on your wits instead of the games rules?

Well, at least that's a healthy attitude.
Bowjo  [author] Mar 10, 2013 @ 2:12pm 
ok Im sorry but theres no hud,plot or even tips its you,the island and the will to survive... thanks for giving your point to me and my company we think of people saying bad things as a good thing because then we can improve on it.

Your writing is terrible, I have no faith in your ability to make a decent story.
