A big common question I get from people is “how do I get started making games?” I’ve spent a lot of my career answering that question for people and trying to de-mystify the process and make game development more accessible to beginners. On November 6, I’m working with Microsoft Game Evangelist Tobiah Marks to answer that question on video for Microsoft Virtual Academy! This is a jump start training for beginners, where we’re looking at some game development and game asset creation tools, and talking about a few of the ins and outs of games as a business in 2014. There’s no real pre-requisite and the training is 100% free!
Here’s some stuff we’re covering:
•Game Development Roles
•Skills Needed to Create a Video Game
•Commonly Used Video Game Creation Software
•Modern Business Models in the Game Industry
