    Tell me..

    .. what do you like the most about making games?

    Coding?
    Level Design?
    Drawing Sprites?

    I’d be interested to know.

    I even start: My favorite thing about making games is, that I can create whole worlds. If I can imagine something, I can build it! And that is the general fun for me. Coding is more or less just what I do to create those imaginations.

    1. Level-Design. Once the basis has been done, you basically start from scratch again with the tools you ust made.

      Also, the point where somebody plays your game and starts laughing. It’s a glorious moment.

      Coding. I leave the world design stuff to someone else :P

      Figuring about how to add emergent gameplay. Getting the basic rules right, so complex interactions occur as a result, is great fun. Then designing levels is just a matter of making arenas that let all the basic rules come out to play; the hard part’s already done.

      Coding. When I think of something creative enough to let me make a good game I love the way I can turn entirely theoretical maths into something people can interact with in ways that is entirely controlled by the code. To be honest I like any kind of coding that allows for large numbers of possible outcomes (as opposed to simple scripting). It’s probably just me being a control freak and loving total control over what happens…

      I’ll have to go with coding the mechanics, when that’s done it’s usually a scramble to get everything else into place before I lose interest. Which is obviously a problem cause you can’t have a game with mechanic alone and no content.

      Least favorite part would be adding UI, never liked that, never will.

      The fuzzy feeling of “I made it and it works”.

      In my opinion, the best part definitely has to be the coding because it enables you to have full control over everything! You can build anything you like, I find this pretty amazing! There are no limits except those of your imagination… and your computer specs ;)
