Have you ever thought about creating your own video game? While it might seem like a challenging project if you don't have any software development experience, it can be done if you have the patience necessary to learn how the video game development process works and how to use the necessary tools.
The first thing you will want to figure out is what platform you will want your video game to run on. Do you want it to be a PC game, a web-based game the user can play in their browser, or a mobile game that can be played on a smartphone or tablet. Determining the platform is important, as this is what will determine which tools you will need to use to create the game. For example, you can use Flash for web-based games and Visual C++ for PC based games.
There are also free video game development kits that you can use if you're new to programming. They can make the whole process easier, as the game “engine” will already be created for you, all you would need to do is to import your graphics and set some variables that will determine how your game will run.
To get more information on creating your own games, there are many free resources available online, such as discussion forums for video game developers.
