hi /g/,

I have decent programming experience. mostly with Java, C, PHP, JavaScript and Python. I'm also familiar with C#.

I want to get into game development - serious game development, even if the first few things I write right now are text-based or very simple just to get the basics (like animation heartbeat, best practices etc.) down.

I graduated in CS, so I am fully aware of data structures, db/db management, complexity etc.

what would be the best way for someone in my position to get into game development? what would be the best language to start with, C++, C# (with Unity probably?), Java? OO PHP or Javascript?

I know there's a shitload of information out there which I've already tried googling, but it would really help if anyone could give concrete suggestions so that I don't aim mindlessly.

From advice given to me, Unity's a good place to start.

This.

Also, what's stopping you from applying to a gamibf company?

unity can be scripted entirely in js and has a pretty big marketshare... there are a lot of js game frameworks out there. it's also the fastest interpreted language by a long margin. not a bad choice.

I have seen some really interesting browser games writen in OO JS. I'm aware that they're probably not representative of the way things are usually done.

>>51465448
It's complicated... I'm from Europe (non-EU) but studied in the US. I'm back home right now and am looking for a position, but game dev positions in Europe for immigrants are all expecting someone much more experienced than I am to make it worth their while.

one bump before I let it fall off, just want a little more input

game development is a horrible industry to be in but if that's your passion, go for it.
>>
>>51465833
well, I don't like web programming and I application programming is a little too dry for me... that really only leaves me with game development.
>>
>>51465425
learn modeling and texturing aswell. also learn UE4 and Unity. maybe ask in modding forums, a lot of people in there are devs and mod for a hobby. the nexusmods chat has a few people with knowledge in the field.
>>
a lot of people suggest newbies to start with Unity
I'm not a newbie anymore but does it actually help afterwards when you wanna try using any other engine or environment ?
>>
>>51466943
It will drastically increase your chance of getting a job in the industry being familiar with Unity.

>>51467060
what really ?
I don't do that for a living but that sure is interesting to know
