If You Want to Make iPhone Games… MakeGamesWithUs


If you want to make iPhone games, there is an option to realize your dream shortly, here is how it works:

MakeGamesWithUs is tired of old guys in suits making boring iPhone games. YOU know fun. WE know iPhone game development. We won’t bother lecturing you with dull CS theory, we’ll get you building iPhone games right away with our project-based tutorials, and won’t stop until your game is on the App Store! So what are you waiting for? Start coding! We teach you native Objective-C so the prereqs are a Mac and some basic programming knowledge, ideally object-oriented…

Check out Elemental Fury and Snake Snake on the App Store! Those were made by high school students! How did they learn how to make those awesome games? By the end of our tutorials you’ll build an Angry-Birds-like game. That means you’ll know how to make games that are at least as complicated as Angry Birds by the end of this!

This is the opening of the story: (from TechCrunch)

Desai says he started making iPhone games in high school and made about $35,000 from Helicopter. He went on to UCLA while Rossmann, a long time friend, went to MIT. The two kept working on projects while in college and decided to take a semester or year off to build a game together. But while working on it they thought of a different idea: what if they built a publishing platform for young developers? They pitched the idea to Y Combinator, and after being accepted dropped out of college to focus on MakeGamesWithUs full-time. The duo graduated from the Winter 2012 Y Combinator class.

MakeGamesWithUs is a new iOS game publishing company with a twist: its focus is on helping high school and college students to build games. MakeGamesWithUs us will take the kids’ creations, provide professional graphics and art and publish them in the App Store. The kids will own the code, and the company will own the graphics and take a cut of the sales. The company already has a few games built by students available, including Elemental Fury.
