Through unexpected events, my friends and I recently met up with the makers of Transistor, Supergiant Games. Although it wasn’t until recent that I became truly interested in game development and programming in general, having the opportunity to meet such amazing people was definitely an inspiring experience (as seen, Transistor’s artwork above is first-rate p.s. the gameplay is even better).
With the amount of experience I have in programming (e.g. moderate proficiency in Python), I’m still very very far from reaching a milestone such as Transistor but it’s good to dream right? And now that summer break is here, I finally have some time to work towards it^^! It’s not much but with a little tweaks I managed to code a League of Legends fun fact app through Treehouse Academy’s lessons in Objective-C.
While making this, I realized how similar programming language is to spoken language, just that you type to a machine instead of speak to a person. I don’t have the artistic talent nor the manpower to make full-fledged game but to be honest, I think this is a good start.
