FREE Magazine to learn how to develop game by taking the reader all the way from setup to the creation of a completed game.

What is Game Loop?

Game Loop is a free monthly magazine developed by Game Developers Guild intended to teach anybody interested in game development how to create games. The magazine is divided into seasons. Each season is composed of a set of issues which guide you, the reader, from the set up of the tools and development libraries all the way to the creation of the entire game. Each of these seasons covers a new game which will either be 2D or 3D, in platforms like android, unity, XNA, and many others. 

Game Loop is a step-by-step guide through the entire development process.

You will learn how to program, how to create art and how to create music. Best of it all, its subscription will always be free.

If you really like this idea you could help us make it a reality. Anyways don't forget to subscribe to the Game Loop members list to receive updates on the releases. Subscribe

We need your help!

Game Loop is developed freely for the community. However, we are lacking the funds to purchase the software to bring this dream into fruition and make it accessible to everyone on the web. We are now turning to you, the community for help in obtaining the money needed. In return, not only would you get the rewards mentioned on the right, but the great satisfaction of helping generations of aspiring developers acquire the means to learn.

Here is a Link to the tool: E-Magazine Maker

We are almost done with the first issue and are approaching our target publication date check out some of the progress so far. Here

In return for your help...

Aside from the satisfaction of helping make this idea into a reality you will also become part of it quite literally. In return for your contribution your name and/or picture will appear in the magazine for the entire year. This means that all the readers will be able to know who is really responsible for making this great magazine a reality,
