Where to go to start making a game? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I would love to be able to create my own game but dont really know where to start.

    I know that using the tools in VS is not a good idea but where to go?

    you hear the terms like openGL, directX, D3D, which from my minimal understanding is a layer used to paint images on a screen utalising whatever software/hardware is on the device.

    So my questions are 1) of the above mentioned technologies, are any supported on WM
    2) if i make an opengl game for windows is it easy to port it to WM
    3) if i wanted to start with 2d what is the best solution, does wm have a built in graphics painting layer?
    4) are there any code samples of games/UI or other graphics demos available that show how to create responsive custom games/interfaces
