my little man got a tablet for christmas, recently saw one of your tutorials online and he has NOT STOPPED TALKING ABOUT IT SINCE.affraid

Anyway, I watched em all too and got into it with him. we've been mostly just messing around but I'ma be here trying to learn a bunch of new stuff to impress him and keep him on his toes. Hopefully he doesn't find this thread Very Happy

I have about 28 years of gaming experience and 18 years of programming experience, so Im hoping i can pick it up and be a better hands on teacher for him.

cheers!

The best advice would be to take it slowly, don't try to learn everything in one day, but most importantly have fun with it!

Good luck to you both. Smile

that is good advice, he's definitely not used to the mac mouse yet but we're gonna try for between 30 minutes to an hour a night to learn together. that'll keep the pace nice and steady I think.

he was having too much fun just making mountains haha I made the wall from game of thrones. wish he didn't have to go to school all day haha cmon summer

For what it's worth, I'm 49 and I'm still not used to the Man mouse!

If i might be so bold, I would suggest finding a tutorial on how to make Pong. It's not that difficult to create, it's a two player game, so you can play together and it should be impressive enough to get him even more enthusiastic about developing. I know that everyone else was really impressed when they saw my four player Pong game... I really should consider publishing it!
