My Top 5 Tips To START MAKING VIDEO GAMES

These are my top 5 tips for becoming a game developer in the new year. I wanted to share a few things that I wish I knew when I started on this crazy journey to become a video game developer. Play my game Shotgun Farmers: 🎮 PS4: 🎮 Xbox One: 🎮 Steam: Shotgun Farmers is the first-person multiplayer shooter where missed shots grow guns. Reloading isn’t an option, so grab one of the deadly crops planted by earlier missed shots. Shot at by a sniper? Well they just planted you your very own sniper gun to fire back with! Harvest weapon plants quickly for more ammo or let them grow for a larger clip.

    1. No problem Qazi. As a gift of gratitude for my very insightful and inspiring compliment, you could perhaps grant me the access to that black suit with the golden SF belt on it. Seriously though, I bought the game a week after it came out in 2017, that’s not that far from launch day right? 😅 I am still a veteran, so getting access to that wonderful peace of attire would be quite exquisite, don’t you think? 👁👁

  1. Man these tips were amazing. It’s funny because I just started getting into game dev stuff so this is so helpful. Love the vid.

  2. My freinds told me to buy this game I thought it looked weird but when I played it was won of the most fun games I’ve ever played!

    1. I think 2014 was when I first started learning how to use Unity and code my own games. I learned the basics of programming in College, but almost flunked most of my coding classes! haha

  3. Hey thanks, I once participated in your game jam, but haven’t created any game anymore since.
    When will you stream again?

    1. Sounds like its time to do a new jam! Global Game Jam is coming up really soon! I try to stream after major updates to Shotgun Farmers, but am mostly focused on the Switch version which I can’t show on stream!

  4. It’s amazing seeing you and your games grow through the time I’ve been here and can’t wait to see what you do in the future

  5. When is shotgun farmers coming on switch is there a confirms release date or you don’t know yet because I play switch mostly

    1. I mostly game on my Switch these days too! I’m working on the Switch version as we speak on the other monitor. It has been a really tough challenge! Mainly due to the Switch’s lower RAM and CPU compared to Xbox and PS4, so I’ve had to rebuild large parts of the game to get it to work!

  6. Excellent advice, and the way they all build to probably the best bit of advice – do a Game Jam. Do a bunch of them. You get to meet other folks who have similar interests, it has a built in deadline, it reinforces the reality that the tools don’t matter and at the end of one you get to see a complete game that you helped make. Will htat game be perfect? Of course not, but that teaches you an important lesson, that no one’s first game is perfect. In fact the first ten games you make will not be good. But you can’t make the eleventh game without making the first ten – so get started!
