I just started planning the next game, so thought I'd blog about it.

I don't know if this is how other people make games (I doubt it!) but it's how I do it. Smile

That is very interesting how you go about making a game from scratch. Dorian Gray sounds like it is going to present some challenges. The maze sounds good Smile I like mazes. I'll be interested to see how this game turns out. Since Dorian Gray is a shorter story do you anticipate the game being shorter than usual ?

Yes. I wanted to experiment with shorter games, and this story seemed ideal. it is a real challenge though, as it isn't a normal "he did this then he did that" story. Somehow I need to find a way for the player to discover the horror of what happened, in a way that feels natural, isn't too easy, and is true to the story. Tricky! Smile

What software are you using to create your game? Visual Basic Express, or what?

A few months ago I was toying with the idea of fooling around with using the free Visual Basic Express to try to create a short PC game, just to play around and see what makes games tick, and I even bought a book, "Visual Basic Game Programming for Teens, 3rd Edition" by Jonathan S. Harbour.

I started with C++, but I'm not a great programmer so it took years! Now I use Adventure Game Studio. Creating game engines is good, but creating games is better. Smile
