Does anyone know of some game making software that is reliable, cheap or even better free. I'm just trying to put myself out there to see what I can do and or learn from it.

Unity has a pretty powerful free version.

I just got that. Ill try it out. Thanks for the help

Visual Studio Express is also free, combined with OpenGL(using something like GLEW) or the DirectX SDK, you can do a lot with that... Reliable, yes... but perhaps not the easiest route... Though, you might wanna double check the license before you sell any games made with it.

All right. I tried the free version of GameMaker: Studio, but from some reason my computer doesn't recognise certain files, and I am also having trouble finding sprites
Shiroe Jan 13, 2013 @ 5:50pm 
you can probably find sprite sheets on google if you need temporary art
Cameron25 Jan 13, 2013 @ 5:54pm 
Allright thanks.

've seen/heard a few prominent developer being asked how to get into the industry and they all say the same thing do mods.

I've been hearing many mixed things. Some have told me get into testing, some have said make something... Its very confusing. They all want different things, so I guess I will have to do as many different things as I can, centered around my interests.

I believe that UDK is one of the top game making software tool. And if you're looking to make a game why not join me my crew we have very few people right now and are in need of assistence to make our extremly large games

Im down. Let me friend you real quick. Do you have any samples out right now that I could look at?

The best free tools for game development (IMO of course):

^ These are all pretty good.^ Also, you'll need something like FRAPS for vid capturing. Also, you probably have a free copy of SDK in your library, and Game Maker Studio is free in the Software store (it's a great way to get started and have something to show and evaluate in an afternoon)

Whichever option you choose, start by ordering up a copy of [whichever one you choose] for Dummies. If nothing else those pull out reference cards are very handy.

well no i dont im in the middle of being taught all the mechanics of this but keep in mind u have to find a model making software i dont know of any free ones just yet
Shiroe Jan 15, 2013 @ 5:52pm 
Blender is a free open source modeling tool, but its not widely used in the industry proper, though some people swear by it.
