When you first start into game development, the journey can feel like it will take forever. That it will be long and taxing. I’m not here telling you it won’t be. What I am going to tell you is that it is rewarding! When I posted my first app in 2016. It was honestly not my best work. It was a funny little cloud popping game. But when I started getting downloads, I got excited. I mean, really excited. It was such a rewarding thing to see.

That being said, if you’re at the start of the road, there’s a long way to go. I’ve built this website to help others who are where I was, find the conviction to bring their dreams to reality. Who knows, maybe I’ll be buying your game on Steam soon!

Guides

Below I’ve gathered some guides that will help you with various aspects of game development. Over time I will release more guides on this blog, and add to this list, eventually culminating in the best possible resource for you to get started with game development!
