Making a video game

I am attempting to make a video game (I wonder how many people have said that before). I am not a very good idea person, but I may have something. I could make an open world marble platformer. I don't think thats been done before. However, I am not a programmer, I know my way around BGEs logic bricks very well but I don't know python. If anyone knows python or has any other ideas please post. Also tell me what you think of my idea. If anyone wants to write scripts for me pm me. (I cant pay as I have no budget, but I will credit you and I will contact you for my next project, which I will pay for.) thanks

Game Console

I was just wondering how easy it would be to make your own simple game console to hook up to tvs. dosent have to have 3d graphics but it would be a plus. i just kinda want something to play around with and make my own games for it. price isnt really a problem but even a computer that can run .exes from a cd, and plug into a tv, and posibly even play through a online server with other people. edit: ok i meant like using microcontrolers now. i want to make a gamboy like system and possibly even wireless. i know you can play games using micro comtrolers, but no idea what i would need. anyone with any idea about this please comment. oh, and a lcd screen too, so that would prolly ne a little work, but im up for it

Game Help

I need help. I've wanted to make a good 3D game for a long time now, and I don't know what to do next. I've downloaded the latest version of Blender on my computer, but my computer is very laggy, has an inconsiderate graphics card, and I have no idea how I'll be able to play it other than on the blender game engine. I took careful notes, I already have a pretty good idea what I want to make, but the idea is so huge, that I don't think my computer (or any computer) could handle it. I have excellent artistic skills, and I've made a lot of thumbnail drawings, conceptual artwork, and details. But I have absolutely no skills at programming, and I've never made a game before. What should I do now? I'm working on learning how to use blender, but since I just got it today, I might be a couple of decades...If I can't make this game, is there a company that I could sell my plans to in some hope that a game might be made? If I can't make a game, I suppose a good 3D movie would work as well...... But I just don't know yet.

what game is this?

I don't have much information about this game aside from a vague description, but if anyone recognizes this, please speak up. So... What I know about this game, is that it is a multiplayer "rail shooter" type game for the original playstation.  I remember that each player controlled a crosshair  and each crosshair had a special attack.  I remember the setting looking almost post-apocalyptic with destroyed buildings and tall skyscrapers.  If anyone has the remotest idea of what I'm talking about, speak up please. I'll make sure to check all of the games in this genre.

Help make a video game

This is for all of you who want to (or already do) make video games for a living. Right now me and some other people are in the process of making a video game. We don't really know much about what it's gonna be. I don't even know if my coworkers know what they're gonna do to help make the game. All i know is that we need more people to help us. If you're interested, then just email me at benyamin135@gmail.com. Include in your email what you can do, previous work ( you don't really need to be experienced), and for 3D modellers, i'll need to see some of your work. I'm in charge of the 3D modelling so make sure you know how to make models because i'm not just gonna take someone who can't do the job in. we're only excepting people who have a good understanding of how to do what you want to do. You can also email me if you have any game ideas. We will include you in the credits and such.

Making a personal game system

So everyone and their grandma has posted and made articles for how to make a "universal game system" that emulates the actual hardware of a console on something like a raspberry pi. But my question is this: is it plausible/possible to create your own, unique, personal gaming console? I mean something that doesn't emulate, but rather is an entirely different system (not an NES or Sega, it's a "You-console"!). I understand some criticisms for this: "Why re-invent the wheel? Or at least the console...", "This is too complicated...", "You're stupid" and etc. etc. My reasoning for this is this: Why not? Heck, what a niffty thing to have under your belt to say "Hey, I developed my own game system and make my own games for it! I'm cool!" So what do you guys think? Is it possible? Has someone done it? If not, you guys have any pointers on what to do? I'd like to do it, but I'm not too electronically edj-imukated. Maybe it'll be something I tackle in the future, but I'd like your input first! :)

Can you make this game?

I am working on a game last 7 years. I need coders for making this game. I will just give you game idea, you will do the job and you will gain the money. I am played all of games and watching game videos everyday. So game designing is my job, you just read my idea. This game will be a turn based strategy, MMO, open world, crafting, starving, pvp, pve, dungeon blah blah game. I cant make this game as a board game bcause it is too complex and requires calculations. So it cant be funny as a board game bcause causes headache. This game has an unique combat system and strange classes and races like turtle, rhino, ninja, runner, mantis...... So you can play as everything. Some characters can fly, swim, run; depends on what you are playing as. Every turn everybody moves at same time. After that everybody attacks to each other at same time. And cycle repeats. You can order to your character "be that much near to target" and it always tries to be that much near to enemy. Server does this calculation automaticly. Lets see what i designed: CYBER Cyber is a robot looks like human but its made all of steel. So its metalic gray colored. Its dark. It is a serial killer. Hates everything, even itself. He is male but he have no gender. His strongest attack is COMET CANNON. Causes a explosion which will kill the target and damage the who arounds it. Cyber can kill its friends while shooting stuff. ZERO POINT is stronger than Comet Cannon and if you shoot it you will lose all of your HP so this spell consumes HP; its deals same damage to everyone in explosion and this spell always deals damage but enemies will divide damage with their FLE so enemies with high FLE will take less damage. After Zero Point; damaged tiles will damage to who stay on them with heat. GATLING GUN spell deals damage with bullets. Damage will be increased every turn but its MP cost will also increase. You cant move while shooting with Gatling Gun. Also nothing will miss you while you using this spell but %100 of your FLE will become DMG. And your movespeed will become your HIT but only half of it. Also while using this noisy spells your hiding will decrease so enemies can see you from even more faraway. Cyber uses bullets and rockets while using its spells and it gets out of ammo. Ammo will refill 10 turns after an empty turn(nothing attacks you and you attack to nothing). Gatling Gun deals area damage so you can shoot many targets at same time. PAILDRAMON GUNS: If you still didnt mention all of Cyber spells are stolen from digimon and gunslinger of Ragnarök online so this skill is same. So he takes rifles from inside of his calfs and shoot the enemy. You cant use this spell if you moved this turn so you cant move. You can shoot the target until miss it so this spell can be used again after you used it if it hits target. It has more hit than Gatling Gun and it can only shoot 1 target. TWIN STINGERS: you shoot 2 stingers from your nipples. Its a divided attack but stingers must be locked to same target. If they miss target, next turn they will try to hit it again. Enemy can attack to stingers for destroying them but stingers have 0 HP and %500 of your FLE also you must destroy stingers 1 by 1. ROCKET RAIN: using this spell causes you to use all of your ammo. You release all of your firepower as mini stingers. They will randomly attack every enemy they can reach. Missed stingers will hit each other and get destroyed. This attack have high HIT but low DMG. ROCKET STRIKE: you shoot a giant rocket from your arm. Its most basic attack of cyber but it costs too much MP and ammo and have low HIT, but still great for dealing damage to 1 enemy and killing full damage build noobies. PUNCH CANNON: cyber can longer his arms for punching enemy. Really stupid but requires no ammo; also it is ranged. JET BLOW: cyber flies really fast by using his jets and punches enemy from its belly. Bcause of he is so badass, blood comes out from enemy’s body. This spell gets used for reaching enemy and starts melee fight. PUNCH: you punch the enemy. If you dont miss, you can punch next turn. You can only punch three times in a combo, so after that Punch goes cooldown. Bcause of his Punches reducing targets FLE for next turn and dealing massive damage and also dealing damage to targets MP; its Punches consumes too much MP. If you can Punch enemy 3 times after each other; 3rd punch will make enemy unable to move. ENERGY SHIELD: the robot creates an energy field like every mechs doing in Sci-Fi movies so why not? When enemy attacks you it will hit your MP with multiplied by %150 damage. If you turn off your shield you will lose all of your MP and MPR, HPR for next turn and you will gain +%50 HIT, +%50 FLE. The turn after that turn your MP will comeback so you can use your spells again. Also shield will turn off when you reach 0 MP. Than next 2 turns you cant turn on your shield. LIGHTNING JOLT: if you use this spell after turning off Energy Shield you will deal +%50 more damage. And your unexist mana can be consumed for this skill. You shoot lightning which one deals damage to all enemies. If there is less enemy it will deal more damage. This lightning will firstly damage enemy’s FLE for next turn and if it can make FLE 0, than will deal damage HP. LIGHTNING CHARGE: It can only destroy both players MP when it used turn after when Energy Shield turned off manually. You rush to the enemy and punch it. Punch throws enemy to back based on your base speed. If you use same spell after shield off, it will not push enemy but will destroy enemy’s MP by destroying your MP. When one of you reach 0 MP, that event ends. This spell also will deal damage. METAL FORM: you already made of metal but you still want to go in metal form. Metal form is a buff will affect you for next many turns. That buff increases your AMR. Its just that. Increases your AMR for many turns. WASTE: when you die, your remaining ammo will deal damage to enemies in range. All of enemies will take random amount of damage but total damage is always same. BURST SHOOT: you shoot the target with a flamming bullet. Its just that. ARM CANNON: You shoot something unkown but also this attack always missing. When it hits, it deals too much damage for its mana cost. It may hit another random target. Sometimes it causes an explosion and hits many targets. RAINBOW CANNON: you shoot your strongest cannon three times for shooting targets. If three of them hit, it is better than Comet but mostly 1 of them miss. Base values of Cyber(elements will be added when game ends): 3 DMG 1 HIT 0,5 FLE 3 AMR 15 HP 0,5 HPR 10 MP 1 MPR What elements Cyber use? Melee(MLE), Ranged(RNG), MAGnetic, EXPlosive, BuLLet, PLAsma BLoW, WAVe, WiND, HOT, FiRE Sense’s of Cyber: %100 SEE %200 hEAR %200 HEaT %200 MAGnetic Cyber cant fly or swim, bcause of that he has 4 times more attack range than his movement. Also machines are really great ranged units. But Cyber have no ability for escaping. Cyber’s hiding values are: %50 SML %50 MAG %50 HET %0 EAR %150 SEE %200 IDE %200 SUL Cyber is good for killing low FLE and high AMR and low speed units. Cyber is strong against high DMG units.

Game Gloves

I've been looking online recently for some sort of "glove" that you would wear for gaming, instead of having a keyboard. Didnt really find anything.. at least in my price range. So i am going to get the Makey Makey tomorrow from a trade with a friend, i figured this was my best bet. My idea for this glove would be that it have either foil on the tips or that sewing yarn that can be used as wire. There would be a thin Aluminum Sheet that you would tap with the appropriate finger. The aluminum sheet would act as the ground. My other idead would be instead of having the Aluminum Sheet have the tech yarn in the palm of your hand, but this would get uncomfortable after time. I want to make this so i could possibly in the future have two gloves one for each hand. Also, if i was to use the special yarn for electronics, i would have to wear to gloves since the yarn would weave in and out of the glove grounding to your finger. Most likely going to be working on this tomorrow or as soon as i can get some cheap gloves. I'll upload pictures then. any suggestions?

Ideas for a video game

I have been writing c# XNA games for Xbox 360, and I am currently working on a zombie game. Kind of a tower defense, with zombies. It is almost finished and I have been pondering what game I could make next. That is we're you come in. I was wondering if I could get some good ideas for an Xbox game. I would like a game that is fairly simple, and one that uses a random play environment. I am currently limited to 2d. I am planing to finish my previous game within about a month, so I would like to know what I am making next within about 4 weeks. Since today is January 30th 2012, let's say cut off is about February 30th. But the sooner the better. Of course, if I chose your game, you would get a free code for it if and when it is finished. Also keep in mind that I cannot make a game with copyrighted elements, like star wars or something. Try to be creative and come up with a good idea. Remember that i would prefer to make a game wih a random play environment  Thanks! This helps me a ton.

I'm looking for people who have those skills, and would like to help out. I live in Canada, but you don't have to live there. I'm good with Skype, or something else. I'm fine with any software. I don't have any money, but I was going to put the games on Kickstarter, and I could pay people off that profit. I have ideas about most genres, like RPG, or action, or even a simulation. One idea is this war game where you command a small army, and attack other people. I can't really explain much, other than you can upgrade your troops, and unlock special troops, like Motherships. Or maybe a tycoon game. I don't really know, I mostly come up with ideas on the spot... So that's all I think i should say. If you need more questions answered about me, just ask.

Video Game Idea

I have an idea for a video game which allows an opportunity  for the players to make money. The problem is that I do not know how to go about it. It would be a space flight\fighter were the players will be able to purchase spacecraft with the ability to customize them to their desire. Then dogfight against other players for cash rewards which they can use for upgrades or new ships. A leveling structure will be needed to allow for players to go against similarly skilled players. First, I would like to know if you would be interested in a game like this, Second, I am looking for people who would able to program, design ships and maps, etc. to get this going. Experience with Unity 3d would be best.

LFG that wants to learn to make games together

*FOR LEARNING NOT FOR PROFIT* So, I've got a few game ideas floating around in my head that I'd like to make, or at least have a hand in developing. However, I do not have the knowledge or experience yet to make these games, so I'd like to make a team that wants to gain experience working on a project that they can add to their portfolios. Should help those who have ability but no guidance especially, or who just want to have fun and make a game. 1) Modern version of Chromehounds with a lot more single and multiplayer features. Idea for the name: Wolf Pack Relative Difficulty: Easy Shooter with overall simpler animations and modelling due to no soft models such as humans required. Can practice making a large variety of models, sounds, stats for items, and hit detection. Also play around with various textures and allowing for players to customize textures. I know M.A.V. is being made but so far that isn't quite what I'm looking for. I have my own ideas on squad mechanics to add. 2) Darker story RPG set in the Mediterranean. Combat similar to Dragon's Dogma. Idea for the name: Road to Retribution Story Prologue http://roadtoretribution.blogspot.com/ Relative Difficulty: Hard Dragon's Dogma has a very awesome combat system, but that also requires a lot of animation skill to pull off. Models are harder because they are organic and so is texturing. 3) Science Fiction Adventure/Shooter using NASA models as inspiration for human designs (look up NASA FTL ship) Relative Difficulty: Moderate Blend of the previous two in terms of how easy and hard for the same reasons. No story/lore behind this yet, figured if I can get a group of people together I can always make the lore based on suggestions. 4) A Total War style game on the Wii U. I do have an idea on how it'd play but... Relative Difficulty: Hahaha, no. For a fresh team to work on that I would have to say no. 5) Whatever the team decides. 1-3 are ordered according to which idea i want done first. #4 I'd love to make simply to prove that the idea would work, but I don't see me getting a group capable of pulling off Rome 1 essentially with the control system of the Wii U, especially since I'd need to get a Wii U myself to test out the capabilities of the touch controls. Still, I'd like to think it's viable for a larger company. I myself am learning Unity and Maya atm, have dabbled in Blender a bit as well, but I am not far enough to carry the modeling by myself. I can however write the stories and dialogue much better, have an idea on how to break down the design process to increase the efficiency, and will ensure we don't overextend ourselves. Remember, the entire point of all this is to get a team to work together, learn the problems that arise working in a team with people in different positions in this industry, and most importantly, get some experience making a game. All while having fun. If it seems the game is going really well, we could crowdfund it, but that isn't the point. This is to learn the game development process by experiencing it outside of a classroom. Positions wanted, but not exclusive Modelers Animators Concept Artists Texture Specialists Sound/Music Developers Programmers Level Designers

I cannot do update graphics (meaning whatever goes on the screen stays on the screen, unlike modern games today) so if I want to do hangman, Everytime I make them guess a letter it must print out the hangman letters. I need ideas for games, and if you had ideas, that'd be great. I did tic-tac-toe and hangman already, checkers and chess and backgammon are all ruled out, so what should I do? Thank you! P.S.

LED Battleship game

Just had an idea for simple to play but complex to build battleship game. If i had the money and resources to build it myself i would. So i just thought i would share the idea and see if anyone else is interested in making it. Basically the target and ship fields will be made from a large pin board for LEDs to plug into. The Ship field of one player will be wired to the target field of the other player. So when an LED is plugged into the target field and there is an LED plugged into the same spot on the opposing player's ship field the target LED completes the circuit lighting both LEDs indicating a hit. No need to call out coordinates and can be a good game for the hearing impaired. The LEDs for the ship can be placed onto sets of header pins. It would take allot of LEDS to make but would be an interesting game. 234 total LEDs are needed 34 of which will be used to create the ships. each player get 100 LEDs for shots (less then 100 are actually needed to complete a game. peg board could be made from old IDE female headers. Board should be marked with line indicating negative side of the connections. Negative side of LEDs should be visibly marked to help the user determine the right way to plug them in.

Play a Collaboration Game?

Oh my... Coffee beans!.Let's try this again! ..Challenge: Oh my! I lost my precious special coffee beans! I need to travel around the world searching for them. Will you help me stay awake for that? I will need loooots of coffee for my mission ;)Design a new coffee filter! Collaborate and innovate together - find a new way to filter coffee. Do not use anything expensive and try not to create too much waste ;) Let's go!... How does this game work: 1) First collect ideas for a coffee filter here under this thread until Monday, March 04th midnight PST - write down what you think would work, freely. (Add in to the already collected ideas - challenge yourself!)2) Look at and discuss others' ideas here, while they are being collected.3) Select one idea that you like, and form teams - prototype together, form an Instructable, make it Collaborative. Or alternatively, just add in your existing Instructable and make it Collaborative. Innovate together! A very rough prototype that shows the principle is sufficient. The time limit for this step is to be announced - not more than several days. 4) Collect the 'ibles here under this thread (or I could make a collection of 'ibles if possible) 5) Let's vote and see which new coffee filter is the best! Try to win the most votes and be on the 'podium'!...I will always be around here - you could ask me anything and also give feedback :).Disclaimer: This is part of a research for my PhD at Istanbul Technical University, department of Industrial Design. The research is strictly non-commercial, only for academic purposes and not financed in any way. The only objective of this game is to encourage collaboration and innovation in communities, in a playful and fun way. Your ideas and identity will not be used or revealed, and your privacy will be protected. Thank you. e-mail: meric.taylan@gmail.com.

Arduino game controller

I wanted to make a general purpose VR gamepad using Arduino and I thought that if I made a Bluetooth mouse using an HID module then I could get it to press a specific coordinate when a button was pressed. I run into the problem, though, of multiple button presses. The best solution I could come up with was to have it quickly switch between the coordinates but then I can't have it hold down the buttons. How do commercial Bluetooth gamepads work and how could I replicate this using Arduino?

Paper and pencil games

I am writing an Instructable detailing the rules of several paper-and-pencil games, and have searched extensively over the net, catalouging all the ones I could find. I'm currently asking the Instructables community to give me ideas of ones I should include. My current list is: Sprouts Dots and Boxes S.O.S OXO Graph racers Paper Soccer Deadman (A game invented by me) Something like this game: www.instructables.com/id/how-to-make-a-video-game-on-paper/ Sim ShortCut (Also known as the Shannon switching game) Three Mens Morris Lexicant Spellbinder Any other ones you can think of?

Playing Games In Session

Think students playing games on their laptops during class is bad? What about parliament members playing games during government policy sessions? The parliament of Bhutan, a small country in the Himalayas, has decided to ban laptops so that lawmakers will stop playing computer games while the Bhutanese parliament is in session.It is not however true that we were always playing games, said the MP, who is from the governing Druk Phuensum Tshogpa (DPT). We need the laptops because that saves us the trouble of having to carry huge amounts of paper and documents.He makes a good point: playing game after game of tic-tac-toe does require a huge amount of paper. What games do you think they were playing?

Gaming without the disk?

I know there are instructions all over the internet on how to do this but as far as i can tell the instructions are without the original disk, if i have the original disk is there a way to download all the information to the computer so that i can launch the game from a folder? a way that doesn't make punkbuster (EA games) kick me if i play online. essentially i want a digital disk so i can use the original as a backup and i won't have to worry about my family removing my disks and destroying them (they tend to leave disks anywhere they can put them down). As a random note im always worried that when transfering my disk from the case to the drive that something will happen as in the past i have been pushed and i dropped the disk, it landed on an uneven surface and someone stepped on in breaking it.
