It is about game making. Do you have any previous knowledge in any programming language (things like PHP, Javascript or any BASIC variant count, too)? Then you should have no problems. If you don't have any idea of these, you might want to gooogle for a short tutorial on these things and play around a little. Once you have the basic idea and know what an if is, or how a loop works, you already got 80% of what's going to make your game.

In my humble opinion, C++ is a damn confusing language (side effects of just having a variable declaredů), but I don't think they will start with the difficult stuff right at the beginning.

ATARI? I wouldnt work for them if my life depended on it! Um do anyone remember what they did to us Aussies? Well if not let me remind you that they delayed TRL badly for us! :( Screw them!

Can someone explain what C++ is for me? :wve::)

C++ is a programming language, which means it's a way to write instructions for computers to process. It is a high-level language, which means one doesn't write instructions that the computer can directly process, instead it offers many features that a compiler will translate into appropriate computer language.

C++ is a very popular choice, it is not the most popular one, but it is the one that most experts prefer. Almost all 3D computer games, especially those with any importance, are written using C++. It is based on one of the other most influential languages, C. It has many very difficult-to-use features, but those also make it a very flexible and powerful tool for programmers.

Atari? How the hell was it Atari's fault that TRL was delayed? Have I missed something here?!

And C++ is a great language to learn, I have only done very little of it myself. I can do VisualBasic and PHP, so it helps when learning C++.

Enjoy it anyway and let us know how you go along!

Now Sega on the other hand...
