Hi!

Post by voltopt » Fri Jun 26, 2020 10:41 am

Hello! I'm an architect (the buildings kind!) who grew up with the NES. I had a subscription to Nintendo Power (and the Nintendo Fun Club before that!), and a friend and I spent many hours in elementary and middle school "drawing" our own video games (notebooks and folders of loose-leaf where each sheet of paper was a screen). We even made up our own games company, magazines, and systems.

I don't have much experience with programming (unless you count Apple BASIC or html). However I'm excited to dive in and learn. I've been following along with the 4.5 tutorials and at the same time, as a sort of way to reinforce the lessons, I'm translating one of those old games I drew as a kid. I'm also excited to make simple games with my kids. They are into it, for the most part! Anyway, hi! I'm looking forward to this experience.

Glad to have you here with us :)
NESmaker is a very fun tool to make simple NES games (that you can play on a real NES console!). A good start is the tutorial videos, yeah :)

That was my level of experience exactly, and I learned pretty quickly. You should do fine.
