Well, first things first. To get anywhere I need to get organized.
I don’t know what the game is going to be about yet….. but in the meantime, I need to learn how to use certain tools to help me get there.
I studied game development but mostly the theory, I have a degree in computer science and I been programming about 12 years. The last five years I been working as a freelance developer.
I been working mostly with c# and .net in various projects, but I know a little c++ and java and other languages.
Considering my skill, it should be fairly easy to get started. I have decided that for this project I’m going to use Unity 3d (free version), and blender 3d for modelling that is also free and open source.
So, I have a book that it been on my shelf for a very long time, it’s about game development in Unity and as I’d said I’m going to get through it and do all the exercises.
I guess it will give me a very good start and get me to the skill level I need to start developing games on my own.
I’ve been working a bit with blender , but I’m still in the beginner level so I will try to work up my skills in that as well.
But the most important tool is patience. I need to get into the right mindset to really free the time.
That means no more unnecessary tv time , and planning ahead. Don’t procrastinate and stick to the plan.
I’m really to start low, an hour a day it’s not that much but for me a family-man with a full time job it’s not that easy.
Well ….this is what I did the first day, I’m looking forward to this journey and see where I land in the future.
End day one….
