Why Game Development takes so much time?

Developing a game is a lot complex than developing any software program. After reading a few articles on game development I am writing this one for you. I will try to brief you about the process of game designing and game development in this article. But before we go into that much depth, let me first motivate you to start developing your own game.

Why Game Development takes so much time?

How can I develop my own Game?

Here are a few steps to consider before you start developing your own game. Every step is necessary to move forward to the next one. 

  1. Firstly, you have to learn some programming languages like Java, C# .etc. and also some scripting language too like HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc.
  2. You need to have strong problem-solving skills, programming skills if you want to become a game programmer.
  3. You need to have some knowledge about computer graphics or rendering engines and user interface knowledge if you want to come into a game designer/ graphics designer.
  4. There are lots of components in game development. Only one man isn't able to develop a big game like PUBG, Resident Evil, GTA, etc.
  5. Find your area of interest and research for that you will get ideas. On that basis, you can move further.

Understanding Game Designing and Game Development

Game design differs from development as the former is much more creative and generally is based on creativity while the latter is mostly a process of coding.

Game Designing

Game designing is much more artistic and comprehensive. Game Designers think of what gamers will want and need in a game, imagining how a game will work as a whole from start to finish. The basic tasks of a game designer are creating a structure of games, rules, concepts, gameplay.

Game Developers

Developers are responsible for creating logic and game entities' behavior as described by the design team as well as developing any tools that will be used in the process.

Game Programming vs Other Programming

Game programmers come in all kinds of flavors just like web developers. On the web site, you have backend server programmers, DevOps, and browser programmers (HTML5, CSS, Javascript). On the game side, you have graphics programmers, engine programmers, gameplay programmers, network programmers, etc. I think it's getting confusing as I am writing more. Although, it's interesting for me.

The End Notes

Games are interesting but the programming and designing behind that game are very complex. It's good to begin with designing short programs to understand how programming mathematics work. That's all in this article. I hope you liked it. Please share your views in the comment section below. Have a good one.
