Game Development

Hola amigos,

My name is Anirudh, So today a thought crossed my mind. Why don’t I take people on a small journey towards game development? I started playing video games when I was 6 years old. my first game was road rash. * nostalgia stikes *

About me and my journey with Game dev so far

Probably still one of the best games I have ever played till date. After so much of grinding, looting, fighting, racing and capturing villages, it finally came to a point where I found myself enjoying making games as much as playing them. So I started out making small games like tic tack toe, snake and then went on with flash games. It was such a good experience diving into new things. For my 12th grade project, we made a GUI interface for Dos executed programmed in C++. We managed to integrate a few games into it and it was fun making them. Later on, I started working on my own games during my leisure, I made a few flash games during my first years in college

About Unity and its brilliance


Later on, I started working with the Unity engine. At that time it was in beta but I got the hang of it.

  • They even have dedicated tutorials on how to go about with things and getting started.
  • Unity store as amazing tools and assets free of cost.
  • Even the Engine is free of cost.
  • It uses C# for programming and is very easy and intuitive to learn.
  • After the recent post-processing and rendering pipeline updates, things are just beyond words.

Here is a sample image rendered after post-processing.
