I haven't gotten any done or even close to started past a very loose framework, but when I finally do this is how I'll do it: C++ (I. NEED. MORE. SPEED.) SFML (On Windows, Mac, and Linux) Home brewed. (Because the little men who live in my toes tell me to.) RPG (Because the little men who live in my toes are the only friends I'll ever need.)
Think I'll answer it myself to get some more traffic here :)
Favorite language: Java.. I really like Java when it comes to making games. Favorite game engine: Hmm this takes some thinking. I really like making my own and using openGL for graphics.
Favorite genre: I have to say it's RTS.. Without hesitation :)
Make me a new Command and Conquer game then hehe
I would LOVE to program games but I've got waaaaay too much on my plate for such an endeavor. However, I would love to work with a development team (even if it were just some friends or small indie developer group) to convert some of my short stories (and not-so-short ones) into story lines for games.
Check out Stratagus and SpringRTS (both easily Googled) Get a content-creation team together and see what you can add to it. Once you've gotten "modding" down, then go for the big stuff. Programming is a bear, but the real slow down is content creation.
If anyone would be seriously interested I'd do what I could for development. I am a hell of a writer and I can do character design in either text description or crudely drawn sketches which themselves could never be used but can help someone with the design abilities to bring them to life. I could potentially get into coding aspects but that is dependent upon time. And if a team can't be conjured up...then I'll just keep daydreaming about it haha
haha @weekendrockstar, I'm a good programmer tho I'm a novice when it come to game development. Though I've a talent for learning :-) Lemme know if you decide to start a team or find one that need more ppl :-)
I use Engine001 its for beginners. I created a small game which updates every time I have holiday or free time. It's easy for me to create a game with since its just my stuff to do when i feel boring & better than playing game. Playing your own game is best thing in the world.
