Hey there! I recently heard about Unity 5 offering all of it's features to free users as well as pro/licensed people, so I decided to look into the world of game development.
For the record: I have 0 programing experience. I'm a designer/artist first and foremost. I'm a fast learner when I have a project to work on, and something to work off of, so I decided to make a game. By the end of the month I plan to have a "game." I'm expecting it to be nothing but a walking simulator for now. Like I said, artist, not programmer. But we'll see. Since what I'm thinking of basing my game on is a series of in-jokes in another community, I don't know if I'll post it here when(if) I finish.
I don't expect whatever I make to be any good. I'm going for learning exercise here, primarily. Making my own game is something I've always wanted to do, and I decided that it's time to finally do it, or at least try. If I get even a quarter of the way to my goal I'll be pretty proud of myself.
Anyone have experiences with game development? Interested to hear about any attempts or failures you guys might have, and any advice.
