It gave me the 120 day warning. That mean I shouldn't post?

Oh, screw it.

I'm Arkie, and I'm another person addicted to indie games. So that there's no confusion in the future, I'm 14. People on forums have mistaken me to be much older or much younger than I actually am, so yeah.

Love readin', writin', gamin', and FaceBookin'.

But heck no I don't play those dumb FaceBook games, even though I'm always on FaceBook. I only go on to talk with friends that I hardly ever see in real life and that I don't talk with on forums.

Anyway, I am here! ;D

And I'm waiting and waiting for a sequel to VVVVVV. :'( It's an addiction.

A good start would be to make a level for VVVVVV or Knytt Stories. There's several reasons for this, such as:

These editors have a lot of flexibility, so there's a wide range of ideas you can use.
No programming knowledge required.
The audience already exists.
Plenty of other levels available for inspiration and understanding.
You can spend as much or as little time as you like.

It's better to start slowly and have something to show, rather than starting with a massive project that ultimately fails. Trust me, I know!

You can also learn a lot from playing games and giving feedback.

When you venture into making your own games, I would recommend releasing versions as soon as possible. This is because feedback and suggestions from people are extremely valuable and encouraging. I only had an overall goal with my current project, so all the feedback I'm getting is dictating the direction. People come up with ideas that are far better than anything I could imagine. Sharing ideas before implementing them is a great way to improve them, because people will say they like/dislike different aspects and give suggestions. So the ideas are improved and no time has been wasted.

Above all though, never neglect the other parts of your life in the pursuit of making games. Especially as some of the best games were created from personal experiences. Friends, family and work/school are more important than making games.

Looks like the screenshots are linked to the locations on your computer. So they will work for you, but they look broken to everyone else. You could upload them to imageshack, or whatever the cool kids are using these days. Then replace the filenames in your message with the image locations on the internet. People will be a lot more interested if they can see a few screenies.

Hi there!  My name's Catie and I have to represent the female demographic here.   :verdigris: I go by LaZ00L1 (pronounced as in lapis lazuli) here and on Steam, so feel free to friend me on there.  :viridian:  I write a small gaming blog that I probably should update more often if my job didn't get in the way of playing more videogames.  :vermillion:  I'm trying to recreate the NES Metroid in the VVVVVV level editor, and the development time for that may very well compete with Duke Nukem.  :vitellary:

And I tend to overuse smilies a bit, especially dancing Kirby.  <(^.^<) <(^.^)> (>^.^)>

Ok, I'm done.

I guess I should introduce myself too...

Hi there! I'm PJBottomz! Some of you might know me from Youtube (TDIBattler, AudacityKidVoices, PJBottomz...). I'm 14 (just so people understand this) and I love Ke$ha songs. I'm trying to be as helpful as I can while also bringing a bit of humour to the forums! So, enjoy my presense (or hate it, your choice!)

DANCE LITTLE KIRBY!

I am 23 and I'm a recent college graduate working as a programmer in Seattle.

I love VVVVVV and I bought it shortly before the Steam release. I was perfectly happy to pay $15 for the game, but I hesitated to recommend it to my friends while it cost that much. When the price dropped, I went ahead and did just that. I wouldn't say it spread like wildfire, but I definitely got a few dozen people into the game.
