Just subscribed here after having a poke around in the archives. There
seems to be a few developers on the list and hopefully a ton of
newbies like me, so this shouldn't be too much of a taxing question
for a first post.
I'm a totally blind guy from London UK. Currently undertaking the last
few modules of a music technology degree, and I have a module starting
in a few weeks entitled Experimental Sound. In an ideal world, I'd
create a little cross platform game that my marker could play (there
is an emphasis on little here lol) with a couple of chalenges they
have to work through as a blind person. The maps would be very basic,
environments/objects/landmarks/all sounds can be collected easily with
a few hours work and a decent recorder if I can find a day when it's
not raining here hehe. My issue is, I can't code for toffee. I took
a few classes in delphi many moons ago, know a fair bit of html and
css stuff, so the concepts of programming aren't totally alien to me,
but I've never attempted anything like this.
So I guess what I'm looking for is advice to get me started. Is there
a simple-ish way of generating something that would run on windows/mac
in particular? Are there any tutorials/podcast/articles you'd
recommend to get me started? If it helps, I can give an outline of
the first mission I had plans for to give you a better idea of how
simple this needs to be in comparrison to the commercial audio-based
titles, but I'll keep a lid on it for now seeing as this is getting
