Yesterday in school during my vessle operations class my teacher told us we are going to have alot of spare time, and that we would be taking on independent study projects that we could be assessed by. He went around the room asking us what we would want to do, and when he came to me, he already had an idea. "Hey, what do you think you can do about game development?" I thought why not? We're going to get a few months in class to put together these projects, and its something I've always wanted to do. I have no idea where to begin though. I post it here because it isn't necessarily going to be a homebrew game on a Nintendo platform. What I'm asking is, where does one get started? Are there kits or tutorials that are reccomended? Things for the DS aren't out of the question but I'm looking to start something for the computer. Any input or advice is appreciated!
