Part 1: Game Design

The first step in making your own video game is designing it. This is where you develop the idea for your game and figure out what kind of game it will be. Will it be a first-person shooter? A puzzle game? A role-playing game? Once you’ve decided on the genre of your game, it’s time to start thinking about the gameplay. What kind of mechanics will your game have? What kind of puzzles will your players need to solve? What kind of enemies will they need to defeat? Answering these questions will help you start putting together the pieces of your game.

Part 2: Programming

Once you have a solid design for your game, it’s time to start programming it. If you’re not a programmer, don’t worry! There are plenty of resources out there that can help you get started. Once you have the basics down, programming your game is fun! You’ll see your game come to life as you code it. And if you get stuck, there are always people who are more than happy to help (make sure to ask nicely).

Part 3: Marketing

Once your game is complete, it’s time to start marketing it. The best way to market your game is by making a trailer and posting it online. You can also submit your game to festivals and competitions. And if you want people to buy your game, you’ll need to set up a website and start promoting it there. But, most importantly, you get creative and put yourself out there! The more people who know about your game, the better.

Part 4: Launching Your Game

After all your hard work, it’s finally time to launch your game! The first step is to create a platform for your game. If you want to release your game on Steam, you’ll need to create a Steam account and submit your game there. If you’re releasing your game on iOS, you’ll need to submit it to the App Store. And if you’re releasing your game on Android, you’ll need to submit it to the Google Play Store. Once you’ve submitted your game, all you can do is wait and hope for the best!

Making your own video game is a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun! By following this guide, you should be able to design, program, and market your very own video game! So what are you waiting for? Get started today!
