How I Taught Myself to Make Video Games

In this clip, I talk about how I learned how to make video games. It was a process of trial and error, and learning was done through web resources and books. It doesn’t take a genius, and anyone who tells you that is either trying to promote themselves or doesn’t understand the learning process. Truthfully, anyone can learn to build games if they really want to. If you want to learn to make your own games, I provide a 4 step process that will take you from start to finish… multiple times.

    Hello, I am curious to know how you got through learning the math and possible physics for making games. not great with those topics myself, been trying to improve but its taking a bit of time. how much did you need to learn or want to and have any tips for learning in a decent amount of time. what resources did you use?

    I think you should do comparisons between frameworks and other stuff like game engines and programming languages! 😉

    Hi guys, I attempted to remake this video using the same footage. 5 minutes isn't a long time to explain, so in the future when I do more game dev I will probably go back to long series 🙂
