      How to make an open world game: Make a game with an open world that doesn’t have a linear path.

      Other than that, I’m not sure what you’re asking.

    2. jovoc says:

      Make a simulator, make the player a participant, then let the player find the game in that.

      The biggest difference, code-wise, is you’ll probably need an engine that supports “streaming” instead of just level based stuff where everything is loaded up front.

      You need to be a lot more specific than “I want to make an open world game. How should the programming look like?”. Why don’t you start by sharing your ideas and ask specific questions about how to implement them.
