Hey guys I have experimented in making games in java. So far I have created A text game in JOptionPane that is kind of like Zork but with yes and no buttons (that were changed to "left" and "right"). I have also made a small game where a ball bounces around a screen but with was with heavy help from a website tutorial. Do you guys have any advice or stories about your first game programming? I really want to get into it but it seems like such a steep learning curve. Any help on where I should start or advice? Thanks guys!
