IGN has learned a lot about the craft of game development in the past couple of years, and today we’re excited to share the first in our series of video game apps that take you from the beginning of the app to the very end.
Our goal with this series was to provide a quick overview of some of the things that go into building an app from start to finish, but we also wanted to show that there are a number of steps that are necessary to getting started and making an app for a game.
In this article, we’ll walk through the process of building your first app, how to get your first beta build, and how to customize the app as you go.
We hope you enjoy our guide to the building process and have a great time with it.
If you’re looking for a step-by-step guide to building a game, our first article will walk you through the whole process.
You can find our other videos on the same topic on IGN.com.
A Brief Introduction to App DevelopmentIn this series, we’re going to be exploring how developers build apps for the iPhone and iPad.
In our first video, we dive into the process by which developers create apps for iOS and look at the basics of building a video game from scratch.
We also show you some of our favorite iOS games and apps.
Then, we show you how to make your first iOS app with the new Apple Game Services API.
Building Apps for iOS The first step to building an iOS game is to learn how to program for the iOS platform.
You need to be familiar with iOS development tools and how they work, so if you don’t already have an app on the iOS App Store, this tutorial will show you the basics.
Learn to Program for iOS iOS is a popular platform for iOS development, but Apple has released some iOS tools that will make it a lot easier to get started.
You’ll learn how developers can build games on the Apple platform in this video.
Learn the Basics of Game Development for iOS Learn about the basics you need to know to build an app.
This video will walk through a basic tutorial on the basics and the general purpose of iOS game development, covering everything from programming to data types and how you should keep your game up to date.
Learn iOS Game Development Basics Learn the basics to create an app that can run on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
This tutorial will walk developers through the basics, showing you how Apple GameServices APIs work and how developers get started using the Apple SDKs for iOS.
Learn All About Game Programming for iOS This video goes over all of the iOS Game Programming APIs that developers can use.
This includes everything from object types and methods to networking, handling sound, and even handling animations.
Learn how to write a GameScript on iOS Learn all about how to use the GameScript API on iOS.
This will cover everything from creating your own game objects to creating your first level, using the GameController API, and using GameViews to access GameState and other iOS game objects.
Create Your First Game on the App StoreIf you’re building an App for iOS, you’ll need to get some help from Apple to get things started.
Apple provides two different ways to get a game on the iTunes App Store: a developer can download the game directly, or a developer using the Developer Center can download it and then upload it to the AppStore.
We’ll walk you both through the two options and how both work.
You won’t be able to do this step alone, but if you want to get the most out of your game development experience, it’s worth checking out both of them.
Creating an App from the AppCenter The AppCenter is a developer tool that allows you to add new features to your game.
You get access to a developer dashboard that shows you how developers are adding new features, what features they’re working on, and when they’re adding them.
The dashboard is a useful way to see what developers are working on when they first upload a new feature to the developer platform.

Getting Your First Beta BuildFor iOS developers, the first step is to get their app on Apple’s App Store.
AppCenter lets you check out apps that are already live on the store, or get a preview of apps you may have on the development platform.
This means that you can start working on an app quickly without spending any money and, in some cases, without waiting to see if the app gets approved for distribution.
Making Your First iOS AppWith the Apple Game Service API, developers can also use the new Game Services APIs to add games to the app store.
This lets developers add game content and add in-app features to apps without having to create new game models or code.
The Game Services SDK lets developers integrate a wide variety of features into apps, including audio and physics, and video playback and navigation.
