Building a game that people love to play is an unparalleled experience in creative design. If you would like to give it a go, the fifteen courses in the Game Developer Bundle offer a comprehensive starting point, and you can pay what you want for them at 9to5Toys Specials.

The other option is to learn HTML5, with the six-course collection showing you how to create 2D physics, in-game music, and the parallax effect.
