I am planning to make some good material related to how to make a game. I thought that before releasing that I could probably share with everyone some of my experiences about how to make a game.
Some of you may thing whether this post will tell you “Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python
Microsoft’s Tutorial for making a maze game
I used this tutorial to make the maze. Here’s a picture.
Compared to the maze given in the tutorial I made it much bigger. You can use the tutorial to understand how to make and perhaps add some other things. Like shaking the walls once in a while? Try it and tell me about your experiments.
I used Visual Studio (express edition) as the software needed to make the game. Visual Studio is free to download and easy to learn.
Another way I found was easier for a beginner to start making games is to use python. Python is a easy programming language.

Some of the people who have no experience in programming may be thinking this
“Programming? That is tough. I won’t be able to make the game”
If you are one of the people thinking this then I say there is nothing to worry about. Python is easy. Very easy to learn. You can try this book out.
“Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python”
The book is free to download and it teaches python by teaching how to make games.
Finally I want to tell you about something that I am going to make games. I am learning Unity3D to make games. Unity3D is a game engine. It can be used to make 3D games. Just wait and see. I will add content about unity3D soon.
For those who don’t want to wait here are some useful links.
Unity Forum to discuss about the game engine and a list of tutorials to help you to learn unity game engine.
