Me and Games
Well, to begin with, I’m the guy who started this whole thing. I started about 11 years ago (2004ish), when I wanted to make a game, and my dad showed me something really cool: GameMaker 5. Now, up to this point, I’d literally been creating “games” in MS paint (draw a stage and character, use select tool to move) and sometimes did paper versions (a line represented character movement), so seeing GameMaker really changed a lot of my life. It’s the whole reason I got into programming. Anyway, after about an hour, me and my dad built a game using drag n’ drop. It was terrible. But it was a first attempt, so not that bad, I suppose!
Things were kind of odd for a bit, as I’d actually started out actively avoiding code. I don’t remember when or why I decided to actually start, but I did and it was the best thing I could have ever done.
So, that’s how I got into programming and game development! Now I use what I have learned over the years to make games, websites and pieces of software.
