How to get started in video games…

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Ruben on 29-04-2012

Many of you have sent us emails asking how to get started in making your own video game or joining our team. Although there are many different routes you can take, my personal recommendation would be to download the XNA tools from and along with that you should purchase XNA 4.0 Game Development by Example: Beginners Guide – Visual Basic Edition. This book will take you step by step in creating simple games while explaining each new step. The book also relates the different parts of programming to easier to understand scenarios. I use this book almost daily as a reference now that I have read it through several times. When I need to explain something to someone I use the book as it explains it a lot better than I ever could. So along with the XNA tools and this book, you will want to also have a lot of patience. Hopefully with the Beginners Guide, within a year some of you will have a game out on the XBox Marketplace. Best of luck!
