Have you ever wanted to make a videogame? Well here’s your chance!

by Ben Dawson on February 13, 2010 · 29 comments


I’m sure some of you have the brilliant idea of making a videogame. Something along the lines of “well if they would’ve done that, the game would be better”. Well I had the brilliant idea of sharing my knowledge with you.
Basically, this is going to be about a 12-week “course” and I won’t continue if there aren’t enough people who leave comments back. Yes, I know 12 weeks is a long ass time but if you have the patience and the will to go on with it, great things will come from your time. So if your interested, leave a comment saying that you are and I will expect you to leave comments on ALL of the other posts as well(just to know your still listening). I’m planning on starting at around Tuesday or Wednesday so that should give you a few days to decide whether or not you want to do this. So yeah, hope to hear from someone soon.

i don’t know man, this sounds a lot like school…

If what I would say if I were lame.

Ive played with Alice, and the RPG maker on PC but never anything from the ground up.

Go for Mr. Lucha

macfirst February 15, 2010 at 12:43 am

Yo Yo February 15, 2010 at 12:49 am

Let’s try it, but can you elaborate a little more? I don’t have many skillz.

Mr. Lucha February 15, 2010 at 9:47 am

Ben Dawson February 15, 2010 at 10:21 am

Ok. cool, 4 people. Yo Yo don’t worry you don’t need any skills in order to do this you just need to download one thing and we’ll start from there

Is this like a flash game? Or a game for a console? I’ll do it too.

Micah Haughey February 15, 2010 at 12:58 pm

While I can’t commit to a 12 week time period, I think this is a good idea and can’t wait to see what comes out of it.

DuneM February 15, 2010 at 5:19 pm

I want to make a me some a video gamez!!! Sign me ups!

Ben Dawson February 15, 2010 at 6:28 pm

xb0xer, to be more specific, we’re going to be focusing around the C# code which people say is out-dated, but really isn’t. If you were planning on making a PS2/PS3 game you can use this code for those consoles, but my main focus is using it for XBOX 360.

Ben Dawson February 15, 2010 at 6:30 pm

wow we’re down to only one more person. This should be easy by Thursday!

Ben Dawson February 18, 2010 at 7:12 pm

For all of you who don’t know, we reached our seventh member today!!!! YAYYY! which means I will continue with the progression of this project ok everyone. Get ready for school all over again…or double-school if you haven’t already finished. I will be (hopefully) posting new assignments every Thursday and every Monday. Now don’t think that because the class has started that there isn’t a way that people can “join” the group now they just have to read things like this so the course staaarrttss….NOW!

I have 2 game ideas. 1. 1st person whitewater rafting/kayaking game would be awesome because you could “run” different the classes of rapids at home.
2. World Traveler would use the sandbox style play of GTA4 to just go exploring different places. Possibly even be based on Google Earth. “Drive from New York City to Los Angeles” or drive on the Autobahn. Basically smooching the Flight Simulator world into a GTA4 style play, using Google Earth. Plus tons of walking places to visit like in Saints Row 2, such as museums, trails, etc…

That is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO freakin’ awesome. I have a 3 game ideas that will be on the top 3 games on every website. 1st is a game where there are hundeds of mythical beasts fighting over who could colonize a new country. 2nd is a first-person shooter game where you are in a modern war, where you can level up to command up to 200 cpu men and your one yourself. There are also dozens of vehicles, flares if you need an airstrike, hounds for finding enemy and a whole lot more. 3rd is an rpg game where you are in New York and you have special weapons and powers and you are figthting against demons that are trying to destroy the city to build a hell on Earth. I can give you more info on all of them. See yah soon !
