I was hoping I could get some advice about building a video game for my 4th Final Year Project.
I have decided to build a video game for the Mac mainly because I’m working for an app development company so I have gotten a lot of experience working with Objective-c and XCode but what I want to know is what are the questions I should be asking myself when researching video game development?
i.e what engine should I use?, how do I craft a story? what are the potential pitfalls of video game development, would building a 3D video game be too bold for a 4th year FYP etc?
I have been tinkering with such programs as Google SketchUp, Unity physics engine and Cocos-2d to see what kind of things I could come up with.
