Want to be a game developer? Join the Indie community

Man Holding A Game Controller

Are you fond of playing video games? Do you play on different consoles or even play a mobile game app? If you answered yes to that last question, it means you are not fond of video games. You are passionate about them, and you maybe even dream of developing your own game. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

All you have to do is make sure you’ll have a compelling story. This will hook players and will cause them to continue playing. However, make sure to use cloud testing tools before you release your creations. You’ll be releasing your games on websites, on the App Store, and Google Play. Cloud testing tools will ensure there aren’t any glitches when people play your game.

Indie Game Developer

You can join big corporations and apply as a game developer. But, it would be much better if you become an indie game developer instead. Why? Because if you become an indie developer, you have the freedom to create whatever kind of game you want without having to please bosses.

However, even if you become a game developer, breaking into the game industry still won’t be easy. Are you are only about to start your career in the gaming industry? You should start at web games or maybe mobile games. Start small first, then work your way up. When you become satisfied with the little projects, you can start developing games on different consoles.

Text-Based Games

You can also start developing games that are just text-based. These games focus on story development. That might sound lame, but there are a lot of text-based games available online as well as on mobile apps. And most of them are fairly successful.

Here’s a fact: Developing a game is not easy. There is a lot of competition out there, especially big corporations that develop hugely popular games. But if becoming a game developer is one of your greatest dreams, don’t let those industry bigwigs stop you.
