On the subject of Learning how to build a game

Being able to write games is a longstanding goal that I’ve had for as long as I can remember. Writing games is difficult, and I’ve made several attempts at learning how, but ultimately these haven’t led anywhere. Most recently I wrote clones of the classic games Snake and Tetris, but that was a couple of years ago now and I didn’t end up with anything I could use for an original concept.

So here we are again: starting to write a game from scratch.


Because I want to.

What sort of game will it be?

No idea.

Is this open source?

Not at the moment. Maybe it, or part of it, will be.
