Project Introduction

There are a lot of game development sites out there so what's so special about this one? Most of the other site provide excellent resources for implementing specific techniques that relate to the different areas of game development (graphics, sound, AI, networking, etc.) but I have never seen a good resource for learning how to fit these elements together to form the actual game! This seems to be a major oversight my goal with this site is to help fill this gap.

My original plan for this site involved developing a game engine from the ground up but I have since decided that this is kind of silly. Why reinvent the wheel when there are already so many good game engines (many of them free) out there that can be used? Instead, plan to focus on using the functionality that such an engine provides to implement a full game.
