(Relates to Sony PS1-2-3 by.... umm if you want to design a PS3 game one day?)
I have rougth but not so sure ideas of how to become a game designer while living in the United Kingdom.
1- Create a Computer game at home and take it to a company.
ICT Foundation Course (1 year)
and then a
ICT Intermediate Courses (1 Year)
to get the grades to do a
BTEC National Diploma for IT Practitioners Course.(2 Years) (software)
After passing with good grades apply at a University for a
Game Design Course.(3 Years)
After you come out of this course you should be ready to be employed.
Please reply if you agree, disagree or know of a diffrent way.
We're looking for creative individuals to design & script game missions and gameplay scenarios Familiarity and use of scripting languages would therefore be beneficial. You will have good communication, technical & problem solving skills and be an avid games player with a good understanding of a wide variety of genres.
A scripting language would be defined as an embeddable high level language. So, you'd be looking at Lua and Python for this, and Java if you can show experience in using the Java Native Interface (JNI).
has me doing
and Pascow programing languages.
Are they any good or what programming language do you reccomend to learn as a part time course?
You'd be better starting with C++ or Java and learning about object-oriented software practices.
Is Delphi a good programming language?
I'm sure from what I remember they program in Cambridge and deal with customer accounts etc. in London.
