If you read my about me page, you should know my dream. To become a Game Designer/Producer. I have always wanted to be that. For the past 5 or so years, I have studied programming. Really, I never felt satisfied with it. I went from one language to another. Which isn’t good. One should focus on ONE language to be successful enough to go into another one. But, the one single thing I like about gaming, was playing on the maps. I was going the wrong direction for YEARS! What I really wanted to do, was create the world, or atmosphere, of gaming. I wanted to be the map creator. I want to be the one who have everyone at awe from what I created. Now, I get the chance.
Like I said earlier, I had other obstacles to hurdle through before I came to this conclusion. I made some detours, but now I am on the right path. This is where Unreal Development Kit comes into play. In the future I will make a blog post dealing with game companies utilities, but I want to discuss my reason first. UDK, is a game engine that is used in games today(For example, Gears of War series). I can make an actual world from this engine. Yes, I could of used Blender Game Engine, but that wasn’t really good for a “Game” engine. UDK is what I really needed. And it’s GREAT so far. Although, I am looking at tons of video’s right now.
I’m learning the in’s and out’s of UDK. From the look of it, it looks SCARY. But, it really isn’t that bad. I’m absorbing the video’s like a mad men. I have yet created a level lol But, I have to learn how to crawl before I can walk.
I’m hoping to create some Maps for you all to s. I will be posting on this blog for progress. This is what I WANT to do. I am finally getting my act together, and learning all these software will get me there. You will see me in the spotlight someday like CliffyB haha. In all seriousness, I hope to become a map creator for a game company. Or heck, create my OWN studio. Which, by the way, is my ultimate dream. Hope to see you there with me at the top!
