    Who wants to make a fun exciting game?


    Heres the story...i know nothing about programming games, but i just love playing them on sites such as miniclip and dragon gamez. After much deliberation i decided i would love to make a game about Schapelle Corby and call it "The Schapelle Corby Baggage Handler Game." Only then did i realise that I dont know how to. The basic idea of the game is that you are a baggage handle named Peter Jackson and you have to put drugs into Schapelles bag (Boogie Board Bag) as they move along the conveyer belt towards a plane, you get points for this, if you accidently put it into other peoples bags you lose points, ect. So theres my story, i can try and do the art for it but id imagine id be pretty **** so im looking for a kind person who would like to have some fun programing an excellent game, there may even be some rewards.

    I don't intend to put a damper on your enthusiasm. But so you understand. First, this is basically a technical/programmers forum, so we would encourage you to actually learn how to program the above idea. Second, programming games takes time. Many beginner enthusiasts would have their hands full with a graphical tetris or pong game. So it's unlikely they'll pick a non-standard game like yours.

    Point is, I'm going to encourage you to learn programming yourself. And make that program yourself.
    When you ask a question, be prepared to tell us: what have you tried? If you think you don't need to try anything, we will never be interested in helping you. If you agree with the link, and you refuse to answer that question, you are being a hypocrite.

    Need help with broken code? Your question should be like a good bug report: (1) It has the smallest number of steps to reproduce the problem you see (2) It tells us precisely what you expected to see and (3) It tells us what you saw and how it differed from what you expected. We need all three to help you.

    Theres plenty of other languages out there, maybe another would suit you better (maybe not but have a look and you never know )

    Yes, yes, but no one's mind is made for visual basic. I hear it permanently screws up aspiring programmers *tongue in cheek*. VB.NET (from the .NET languages) might be better. But there's also languages like C, C++, Java, C#, Python, Ruby, etc. Personally, I would choose Python, but you should read on the web and some of the stuff I posted about choosing a language.
