Hello everyone! Welcome to the Kilobolt Game Development Tutorial.

I am the lead developer at Kilobolt Studios, and I am here to help aspiring game developers create awesome games.

Before we begin, here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Subscribe to this thread! (Thread Tools > Subscribe > Daily Updates(?))
Otherwise you will forget that it's here.

2. Like us on Facebook! We will post updates whenever a new lesson is up.

3. Game development does take time and dedication. If you are not prepared to give both, think twice before you start!

4. Once you do start, if you find things difficult, ask me and others your questions! Either send me a PM on here, or for quicker response, contact me using one of the options here. I will try to explain as much as possible and post frequently asked questions in the following post so that other users can benefit from your questions.

5. Beginners are very welcome! I will arrange the tutorials so that people can easily start where they feel comfortable. The very first tutorials will be targeting beginners, so that we can get everyone on the same page before we start the fun stuff.

Love it. Been thinking about trying my hand at game development and not 'normal' apps. Can't wait for the rest of your tutorial

Hello everyone!

I am the lead developer at Kilobolt Studios, and I am here to help aspiring game developers create awesome games.

I recently made a post on the general Android forums to see if there's any interest for a game development guide. Well, it turns out there are lots of people who are interested! So I made the decision to begin writing a series of game development tutorials that will begin with basic Java and delve into Android-specific game development soon.

Before we begin, here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Subscribe to this thread! (Thread Tools > Subscribe > Daily Updates(?))
Otherwise you will forget that it's here.

2. Game development does take time and dedication. If you are not prepared to give both, think twice before you start!

3. Once you do start, if you find things difficult, ask me and others your questions! Either send me a PM on here, or for quicker response, contact me using one of the options here: http://www.kilobolt.com/contact-us.html. I will try to explain as much as possible and post frequently asked questions in the following post so that other users can benefit from your questions.

4. Beginners are very welcome! I will arrange the tutorials so that people can easily start where they feel comfortable. The very first tutorials will be targeting beginners, so that we can get everyone on the same page before we start the fun stuff.

5. Feedback is even more welcome! If you have any tips on how I could improve my tutorials in terms of readability or enjoyability, or if my tutorials suck, let me know :D

6. And one last request: if you appreciate the series, which we are offering to everyone for free, please support Kilobolt Studios!
To do so...

1. Download our game for free here:
http://kilobolt.com
2. Donors receive special gifts! You can find out more about that here:

Great job :thumbup:
