Hobby playing games are the first step to developing a business in the field of gaming. Feelings of pleasure will make it easier for you to learn and build your imaginary gaming company. If we don’t know about the program, you can learn to create games using free trial software. You can try to upload your writing on a web page or a special forum like Unity Forums and GarageGames to introduce your work.
2. Education and Build a Resume
To be able to do a game business, we do not need to pass a certain level of education. The most important thing is to increase your resume and portfolio, for example by creating software or mini-game, learning the techniques of working web programs, working techniques for PC and GPU, C ++, 3D Studio Max, OpenGL, and Direct-X.
3. Create a Game in Your Spare Time
In this stage, you can learn to develop a game. One of the most important affairs of this stage is the learning process that we experience around the game creation process. You can also make sales on a small scale even though the results have not been so satisfying.
On the other hand, this phase will trigger your creative mind to work harder. There are a lot of self-made games that sold for a fortune. Take an example from IDN Poker Online, is one of the best poker online game that was published in early 2014. Built based on a poker hobby, self-developed and hit the jackpot in the market.
4. Develop Full Time
After you successfully test it, you can start developing the game in real terms. Of course, you must be prepared with all the risks facing. In this stage, we will enjoy how difficult it is to become an entrepreneur who is not very well established. Maybe you cannot control employees and financial flows in full.
5. Focus on The Time and Energy Used for The Game That Has Been Developed
If we can go through the four previous stages, on this stage, you are ready to develop your own game in focus. Our days will be drained by developing games, designs, and marketing. Make the game that we like, and when it turns out the results of its development cannot be sold, it is very unlikely that you will be proud to have made it.
Dare to face the risks that come? If you are passionate and interested in becoming a game developer, prepare yourself by learning the science of programming and web design for your initial capital. Don’t hesitate to develop your creativity!
