It goes without saying that we at Gamnesia love games. Chances are that you, given the fact that you're reading this, also love games. Some of us however, myself included, have always wondered just how the hell these damn things get made. I know countless programmers and designers who got to their chosen profession with that question at heart and I am happy to include myself among them. Not content with simply making games for a living, I've decided to share it all with you fine folks.
With that introduction I am proud to announce that Gamnesia will be getting a new article series focusing entirely on game development and news from the game development front. These will include mostly tutorials, tips & tricks, Q&A's and anything else that I (and you) can think of. That last bit is very important, so let me emphasize it - the majority of the stuff that will be shown, presented and analyzed in these articles will be influenced by you, the readers. Whether you want more tutorials, finished code assets, Q&A's or just plain old dev logs, you'll get it.
A few things to note:
- No previous experience in any game development related segment will be needed to follow along
- The engines this will center on most are the Unreal Engine 4 and Unity, being that I'm proficient in those.
- Reviews of different engines will be here, more than likely upon request
- I expect tutorial series to take up the bulk of the content
These articles will be focused on people aspiring to become game developers regardless of the role they want to perform, and to kick it off from the very beginning we're going to have a beginner's tutorial series for either the Unreal Engine or Unity, the specific choice depending on the outcome of the embedded poll. Once the poll closes, you'll start seeing these articles pop up twice per week.
And that's about it, I believe this covers everything you fine folks need to know about this new endeavor and I hope you're as excited as I am. Happy voting!
