Hey, although I am novice with programming in c++, I would like to know "how to make a game." (I know that phrase is throw around alot)
I'm not going to attempt to any time soon, but I would like to know what it takes.
What are the steps and what do I need to know to do so? Could I make a simple tic tac toe game with only c++? Or do I need to know how to use something like opengl? And what exactly is opengl? Is it a programming language? Can it be compiled in a c++ compiler like bloodshed dev c++? If it's not a language, how do I associate it with c++?
Any help's appreciated.
