“How to Make Video Games?” is a question Kevin O’Gorman is very familiar with, whether it’s asked by his game design students, at industry talks he gives, or as a Director of the Dallas chapter of the International Game Developer’s Association (IGDA).
But while a lot of beginners want to know what software to use, which programming languages to learn, or even how to get their newly started game on Steam, Kevin knows there is a whole set of steps for a budding game designer to master before they even get that far.
