Am I ready for game programming ????
I have done programming (in C) for around 8-9 months, I didn't write any exceptional programs in this period though. I know C++ fairly well (I understand inheritance and polymorphism, that is), and have completed my Data Structures course (didn't score an 'A'). I am interested in programming games, but have no idea as to where to start. Can someone suggest some book (no tutorials on the net please) that can help me start (that is if you think I am good enough to program one).
I am looking for something to begin my game programming with...
Thankx in advance.
Just one more question.....
Is familiarity with windows programming necessary to follow this book? Although I have been using Visual C++ 6.0 for quite sometime, all I have done is console programming on it. I haven't really done any windows programming till now. But if it is necessary to understand the book that's been suggested [Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus] then I would learn some Windows programming before I go for the book (but I am sure that I am going to get this game programming book).
