Installing software will probably be one of the largest initial hurdles, and unfortunately I can’t help you. However, there are many excellent techs in the #GamerGate community that can help out.
I’m a PC guy, so you’ll need at least Windows 7 for an operating system. I’m using Windows 8.1, if you want your screens to look exactly like mine.
If you’re using a Mac, I can say that my students have had good success with Bootcamp and Parallels.
- Microsoft Visual Studio (Community Edition) — for programming your game
- Blender — for creating 3D models & animations
- Gimp — for creating the images textures for your models
- Babylon.js — the 3D WebGL “Game Engine” (save this file somewhere and remember where)
Again, if you need help with software installation please ask the #GamerGate community.
