Out of curiosity I started to make my first steps by creating my first game.
I didn’t have much experience with making games then, but I loved playing them.
So I started first with OpenGL and C++ to make my first steps into the world of game development. However it seems I was not going near to a game because I was just lost in the dept of game engine design 🙂
After a wile I thought about using an existing game engine. However I was not convinced since I wanted to learn everything from scratch …
I installed the Unreal Engine (beast) and I was overwhelmed by the wast amount of features and possibility the engine provides.
So where to start there ?
I got on Udemy.com to find a good course to start …
Then by accident I found a very good course by Ben Tristem teaching the Unity 3D Engine … and I liked it very much …
so I started to learn Unity 3D instead of Unreal Engine.
After some time of watching Ben Tristem’s online course and fiddling around with Unity 3D my first game was ready. I released it on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. I was so proud 😉

Out of curiosity and love to games I founded my own development studio Bitmutation e.U.
But also the law in Austria, where I live, somehow requires you to create your
own kind of legal entity … mostly because of taxes
