    Make a polished (or not if you are a newbie) clone of an already existing game.

    i am learning Lua, and that is what i am planning to do before making an actual game.

    I've already done that. I am looking to move on and challenge myself to make a harder game. It'll be a great learning experience.

    Idk how javascript works, but a rhytim game is pretty easy in game maker 8.0 pro. It need 3 object, 1 is the button that you need to press, 1 is the one what it needs to collide with. And 1 cheking IF there is collision. Idk. Might work in javascript.

    Consider trying a 3D game?
    Like a 3D adventure. Build a world, you can jump and climb, maybe chop down a tree for wood. Might be interesting.
    Or try something like that in 2D. I don't know what you've done before/how advanced a game you've made? :)

    3D is way beyond my level right now... although maybe I could make a 2D minecraft :thinking:

    Maybe you can have a character and a world just like mincraft with a few tools to select?

    In code language,
    if click on grass,
    make grass 0 (nonexistant) and recieve +1 grass
    etc etc...

    if you are selected on ax,
    you can "kill" tree and recieve 10 wood
    else
    no kill tree

    etc etc....

    I know you already know if's and whatnot :P, I was just saying that it sounds pretty easy (well, not easy but you know) to make a game like this?

    Just an idea! :D

    OR

    maybe try a caculator "game" ?

    OR

    Some sort of game where things are falling and you must catch them in your basket by moving left and right,
    "classic" games like that?




    Just throwing out a bunch of ideas, hope these help to get you started!

    I don't know what you're looking to make, but if you are looking for a "real" game to make, something original and unique to actually put on the market, here are some ideas with my personal answer:
    What types of games do people like to play? (puzzle games seem to be high demand, yet there aren't many good fun ones. Also adventure and story are fun, but again this is just me!)
    What makes a game fun? (Nothing annoying. No long dialogs, simple storyline, simple controls, GOOD CONTENT! You don't want your game to be empty do ya?! :D)
    What kind of graphics are interesting? (I like simple. Nothing chaotic, nice matching color scheme to fit the story...)
    What makes a game annoying? (If it's boring, for one. Long dialog, complicated and weird controls, funny camera angle, "trying too hard", and so on.)
    What attracts your attention to a game? (I like a simple cover image that shows me plainly what it's about. The name and image tell alot about your game. )

    Again, just ideas, I don't know how "advanced" you are in coding, but that doesn't mean you can't go ahead and try to make a game for others to play! Sometimes the simpliest games can be the most fun. :) Goodluck with coding, hope these ideas can help!! :D

    I'm really considering making a 2D minecraft game... I might even attempt to make it an online game once I get the main bit working. The only problem would be paying for web hosting and a domain :p

    Blockheads was a good game until tc pirates made the dev switch server hosting payment to real money... It's so much more exspensive to host servers

    Omg so many quotes XD. I used Game maker 8.0 pro, you can't get it anymore, game maker studio 2 is the newest of course not free ): , if im right. I do not use code, but Gamemaker has its own leangue, also i think you can use plugins to code with C++ and simlar leaungues, but im not sure.
