How to Make Your Own Game

Surprise: In addition to analyzing video game trends and ranting about video games, new game systems and technologies to anyone who’ll listen, we’ve also self-published and signed hit video games ourselves. As a result, we’re commonly asked the question: “How do you make a video game?” To be frank, there’s no easy answer in this day and age when iPhone and iPad apps; digital distribution services (PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, WiiWare, Steam, etc.); and indie, episodic and user-generated games all provide equally valid options. But for those wondering how to make your own game, you might see our guides to developing PC and console game products, how to create a video game with no programming or art knowledge using off-the-shelf tools, or making an iPhone app or downloadable game title. All should provide a quick reference guide, as well as some useful hints and tips. But the real secret to success in developing and publishing games? A knack for project management, an even temperament and a healthy sense of patience.
