    Greetings!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Murkie, Aug 7, 2012.

    Hello everyone, I'm Mark and I'm studying computer game design. I particularly enjoy creating worlds, characters and quests.
    Writing a book is something I've wanted to do for a very long time and I think these forums are going to be a big help in the future not just for that but also the game designing side of things as well.
    My goal is to eventually get published. I really can't think of a more fulfilling achievement than to have something I've created being enjoyed by others.

    Anyway, enough from me - I have to get back to the day job unfortunately.

    Hi Murkie:

    What language are you using for your game design, lua?

    I look forward to reading your posts and writing.

    Cheers,
    Anita.

    Thanks for the welcome. I've messed around with C++ and C# a little but I prefer to use 3D editors like UDK and Unity. Also enjoying learning Skyrim's Creation Kit right now.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Mark!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirments. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Nice. I can relate to C++ (just intro really) and not at all to C#. UDK and Unity look terrific. Alas, being a Linux user I am unable to experience the trial versions, so I will just have to read about it from you.

    Steam seems like a big community, so the Skyrim Creation Kit looks like a good choice.

    Looks like a very exciting direction.

    Thanks Murkie,
    Anita.
