Making computer games I was wondering if anyone here has any experience making games. I'm thinking of doing one as a bit of a hobby, I've never done anything like this before though. I've done a bit of programming but nothing as complex as the game I'd like to make would have to be. I'm thinking of making a platformer, but not really a classic platformer - a modern one with 3D graphics (insofar as this makes sense in a platformer). Kind of like Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project. So basically the gameplay is still 2D but the graphics are 3D (or a good imitation). I want to get the full experience and really know what's going on in the inner workings, so I want to build it from the ground up - in C++ or something - rather than use one of those game-making utilities on the net. I realize that this may be difficult, but that's part of why it seems like a fun idea.
