Suddenly I feel left in the dust with you and Arty. I remember the days when we all knew about the same amount of coding. Then all of the sudden, Arty came out of nowhere hacking Alice and making it awesome. Then he learns 50,000 different languages and now suddenly you are getting into game development. I am still learning little Java.


I'm a web developer/ designer now.

Don't feel left in the dust. You're right at the stage I was before I started shooting for commercial apps. Basically I was working with Alice, learning to be a jack of all trades when it comes to working on a small team (i. e. working with almost no help), and making interesting things from boring ingredients. If you feel like starting now, do it. Nothing's stopping you, you have as much time as you want to make your first game, and there are a number of engines you can use to build for even the more advanced mobile devices out there, at least one of which is free.

Here's a list. The free one is jMonkey

The site has some more stuff for developers since they really want their new PSP phone to have cool apps to attract customers. I say we help them out with that.

Wait a minute, Android apps are written in Java?

From what I've heard, yes.

iPhone apps are a different story.

Yes they are written in Java. That's how I'm learning it. The official Android SDK is provided for eclipse (Java IDE). iPhone is X-Code or something like that.

There's no need to feel left in the dust, for a start X is further ahead than me (I think) and also you are on the right path, Alice is a great start for anybody, I'm glad I was introduced to programming this way.

The thing is, I know a decent amount of Java and have the power of Google behind my back. Perhaps I should think of a good Android App especially with their new Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

At least you're not like me. I tried to learn Java and didn't get it.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.
