  • Computer, Internet, program, Game Editor, the compiler of a suitable programming language, Adobe Photoshop.
Every game starts with an idea. As you know, the most popular game in the world Tetris, which is exactly the idea, not the physics, plot and special effects. Look around you, maybe some fun yet not smart enough to realize the art form and you have all chances to become famous. Define the genre, work through the idea and clearly decide what you want to get the end result.
If your idea doesn't require 3D graphics, introduction to the physical characteristics and other "difficulties" inherent in large commercial projects, we pay attention to program to create two-dimensional games Game Editor. It can make any mini-game with its own plot and graphics that you will need to prepare in advance in a graphics editor like Photoshop. The interface of Game Editor is entirely in English, but it doesn't hurt to learn it even the "teapot", because in the network there are plenty of forums and instructions to this program. Create your own games with Game Editor is best to start with the study and processing samples of games included in the program.
If you need more resources or you feel a potential programmer, create your own game in some programming language: C++, Delphi, etc. for Example, examining the foundations of Delphi, in a very short time to create any table game like chess or backgammon. And C++ is generally considered the main language for writing games – it was created by legends such as Warcraft and Doom. Read the tutorials and forums on these programming languages, consider the examples of development of games on them and start building their own creations.
Tamp hand on the classical examples. After reviewing all the documentation, write your own Tetris, snake and chess/checkers on the selected programming language and graphics to create them themselves, too. After this workshop, any game that you can create at home, you will be able to do.
