First to quickly clarify: This isn't a project to make a game. It is a project to make a Game Creator, designed to be as simple as possible to use. It will run the games it creates through the 3D engine I am creating to run along side it. I want this engine to be as efficient as possible, whilst also displaying good graphics.
I came up with the idea a few months ago and have been bringing together information and testing and getting to know many different libraries which I could use to make this project a reality.
I have a relatively solid foundation in C++ and OOP but am entirely self taught.
I started out making games 8 years ago as a complete non-programmer. I used a piece of software that allowed for creating 2D games for a few years before learning any programming that wasn't related to web design.
From my experience as (what I was back then) a non programmer wanting to make games easily, and my experience with the software I used back then, I came up with the idea to make this project.
I bring a massive amount of ideas to this project and have tried to outline most of the core components which need to be built to make this engine functional.
I hope I can find somebody out there who is interested in this idea. There are a lot of people out there looking for easy ways to make games, this could be a great solution.
