Unless you make it happen, even just a little bit at a time.
My name is J. A. Whye (most people call me Jay). I created computer games back in the days of the Apple II and at some point “strayed” off that path. Now I’m too old and too poor to switch careers back, but I still want to create my own games, so I’m going to make time for that to happen.
What’s intensely cool is that I stumbled upon a framework that makes creating your own mobile game so fast you won’t believe it. It’s called Corona SDK and it’s by the fine folks at Ansca Mobile. Check out the Videos section of this site for some samples that will blow you away. I liked it so much I created the #1 Corona SDK IDE, Corona Project Manager.
If you have a lot of time, go ahead and learn the intricacies of Objective-C and Xcode. But if you’re strapped for time like I am, but still want to create your own game for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, etc., take a close look at Corona SDK.
You’ll be glad you did!
