Before I go into detail on the actual development of an electronic game, I thought it would be good to give you an overview of the game development process.
There are 3 phases that exists in all productions:
Pre-production – the preparation for the development of your product
Production- the development/creation of your product
Post-production- the final steps that make your product ready for use
The 3 production phases of game development involve:
Pre-visualization of the game: storyboards, 3D images (Pre-Production)
Computer Programming that creates the game environment, user interface, characters, etc. (Production)
Distribution, Marketing, Final Design Edits (Post-Production)
Below is a link to a video that does a more in depth overview of the game development process.
Through out this journey I plan to research the tools needed to perform each phase of development. That way you will know what it takes to create mobile games, computer/console games, casino games and any other type of electronic games. In addition, I would like to explore the future of gaming as new technology is introduced.
If interested, here is a great video I found that does a brief history of video games. I thought it would be good to see how far technology has come in the gaming industry.
I couldn’t find part 2 (lol), but I think this does a good job on its own.
(Space Invaders will always be my favorite game! )
Next week’s agenda: I will start from the beginning and discuss the process of storyboarding/ 3D modeling and possible programs you can use.
Thanks for reading and watching!
