I studied gamedesign at ROC A12 in the Netherlands. I got taught C and C++ there, and a little bit of html/javascript/php and other web related languages.

When I finished, I got a job offer from Boomerweb, the company where I did my internship. Currently, I'm their app-guy. I create Android and iOS apps for use in e-health and remote care solutions.

It's very interesting to work on projects that will be used by health facilities, because it introduces a whole new way to look at user friendliness and data presentation (it turns out what we youngsters find user friendly and easy to read is a pain to understand and use for elderly and mentally disabled people. Who would've known! :)).

comment How to get a job in the game industry if you live in a country where there are no game companies?
@Tordin The game industry is the biggest industry in the world -_-. It caught up to the film industry over a year ago.....

comment Game Maker: How do I make a score display move with the view?
I think there is an option "relative to view" when you inspect the object in the room. Not sure though, been a few years for me as well (even before YoYo took over).

comment Should I allow “low-level” access in my game for modders?
Good question, I wish more developers would think about this before releasing their game, as some games have insanely complex editors without the need for that (trials ^^), and some games come with an editor in which you can hardly produce something worth downloading. Would +10 if I could, but I can't so I'll +1 :<

comment Zelda like multiplayer combat
A real test, on the subject of networking would be to estimate the number of times you are going to send data and the size of the data you are going to send, then make a simple application that will go a bit over those values. If everything runs fine then you know it's the way to go, if you have some issues you can try to solve the problem and test again, or search for another method. You want to keep track of ping etc as well btw, and you'll need to test over the internet or at least a very busy network (turn on some downloads) to actually stresstest it properly.

comment Move Camera Freely Around Object While Looking at It
If you have more objects in your scene, it will get harder. I have a camera class in c++ using the winapi for mouse input. I could post it, but it's not really optimised in any way nor is it the right language for you.
