  • Profile: 15 year old Irish game developer - Jonathan White - Digital Times | Digital Times
    I chose the Android platform as it was relatively new when I started game development At the time my graphics skills weren t the best and you can get away with a lower standard of graphics on Android compared to Xbox or PS3 PS4 Also in the game engine I use Unity3D publishing to android is free With the recent popularisation of Android tablets I decided to get into the market early to take advantage of the growing interest In the future I am hoping to port the game to iOS and Windows phone Do you develop games alone or in collaboration with friends or mentors None of my friends do animation or programming these skills I had to teach myself I primarily use YouTube and online forums for learning Using these skills I published the first version of the game in April 2013 Since then I have sought the advice and feedback from friends in school on areas for improvement Then I sought help from teachers in school on the marketing and promotion of the game as part of the Co Monaghan Young Enterprise Awards competition There I won the Intermediate category and get to go on to the National Final in Croke Park I am very humbled to get this far as there were some truly great projects there Is game development something you would like to do as a career and if so where would you like to work Ireland or abroad Game development is something I would definitely consider as a career however I do prefer the 3D graphics side of game development a lot more than the programming side So I would probably prefer a career in visual effects or animation I absolutely want to stay in Ireland to work as the digital creative industry is growing rapidly and there are some absolutely amazing Irish companies producing amazing work In your opinion are there enough supports for young people in Ireland who are interested in coding and development Definitely People in Ireland are doing a great job in supporting the learning of game development Many schools are trying to introduce it into their system and clubs like Coder Dojo are great as well However I do see a lack of 3D game development and 3D graphics being taught in Ireland Hopefully that will change in the future What are your own personal top three games and what platform gaming device do you like the most Funnily enough growing up I was never allowed game consoles so I missed out a lot in a way My favourite gaming device of course is Android I love the way that such a small device is so powerful There is a great future for Android From what I ve played on Android I love the games Riptide GP2 Vector Unit Ku Shroud of the Morrigan Bitsmith Games and N O V A 3 Gameloft I only began playing games when I was given an Android tablet a year ago
